What to expect

At the Sachsenhausen concentration camp, just outside Berlin, tens of thousands of prisoners perished at the hands of the Nazis in conditions of appalling brutality. The camp was a training ground for the SS and the site of the headquarters of the whole concentration camp system. After the Nazis were defeated, the Soviets used Sachsenhausen as a camp for their own political enemies – thousands more were to perish over the following five years.

Your guide will unravel the complex history of the Holocaust and shed light on all aspects of the former camp:

  • Why the Sachsenhausen concentration camp was established by the Nazis
  • How life was like as a prisoner and how some of the detainees were able to survive
  • How the conditions in the camp worsened in 1939
  • Where the thousands of Jewish prisoners were incarcerated after the so-called “Kristallnacht”, before being sent to the death
  • How the SS used the execution complex at Sachsenhausen to perpetrate acts of mass murdering
  • How some Jewish prisoners survived by working in the forgery workshop, counterfeiting millions of pounds sterling
  • How some prisoners were subjected to excruciating medical experiments
  • how the Soviets turned Sachsenhausen into a Special Camp for their own enemies after the war
  • How the East German regime manipulated the history of the camp for its own ends
