Visit Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp and learn about the Nazi SS and Gestapo atrocities committed during World War II. See the place where many perished and visit, among others, the punishment cells, execution grounds, and the hospital.
Built in the summer of 1936, Sachsenhausen initially facilitated the removal of "antisocial" elements of society, as Berlin hosted the spectacular Olympic Games. During the Third Reich more than 200,000 people were imprisoned here by the Nazis, of which some 50,000 were brutally murdered. Sachsenhausen differs to Auschwitz, which implemented the Nazi’s policy of racial genocide. Sachsenhausen victims were a mix of political opponents, and only later groups defined as racially or biologically inferior, mostly from the newly occupied territories of Nazi dominated Europe.
Hear stories of valor from the British Royal Marine Commandos that refused to have their will broken. Learn the fate of Stalin's son, where, as Hitler's personal prisoner, he was detained in isolation for 5 years before his execution. Explore the attempted use of death marches to murder remaining survivors before Soviet liberation. later, visit the punishment cells, execution grounds, crematorium, Pathology Laboratory, hospital, and the gruesome pit where victims were left to rot.
The tour also details life and death in Special Camp No. 1/7, as Sachsenhausen was to become under the Soviets. This special tour around a frightfully storied location of WWII history is harrowing, but it lends visitors an unparalleled insight into the reality of the Holocaust.
