Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp Tour from Berlin

Berlin – Sachsenhausen – Berlin
The day begins in central Berlin. We’ll take the train 25 minutes north of Berlin to the town of Oranienburg, where we will walk to the memorial site. When we arrive your licensed guide will explain how the Nazis began using concentration camps in 1933, opening Sachsenhausen in 1936.

You will then be led through the site, as your guide explains to you how various victim groups were persecuted: Jehova’s Witnesses, the Jewish, political prisoners, and Soviet soldiers among others. Between 1936 and 1945 around 200,000 people were imprisoned at Sachsenhausen. You will learn the history of the site as your expert guide takes you to the Jewish barracks, the shoe-testing track, the camp prison, and the execution center Station Z. Your guide will also tell you how the camp was liberated by Soviet soldiers in 1945, only to be turned into a Soviet internment camp that secretly remained in use up to 1950.
