This moving and thought-provoking tour takes you to Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp for a glimpse into Germany’s dark past.
Built in the summer of 1936, Sachsenhausen facilitated the removal of "antisocial elements" as Berlin hosted the Olympics held that year. The guide will explain you in detail about life and death in Special Camp No. 1/7 as Sachsenhausen was to come under the Soviets.
More than 200,000 people were imprisoned in this site by the Nazis of which some 50,000 were brutally murdered. Learn from your guide about the prisoners who died of starvation, disease, forced labour and mistreatment.
The design of the grounds was conceived by the SS architects as the ideal concentration camp setting and symbolically subjugating the prisoners to the absolute power of the SS.
