Sachsenhausen concentration camp was built in 1936 just outside the Third Reich capital Berlin. The idea was to design a model for all future camps in Nazi Germany. By the end of the Second World War, about 200.000 people were interned there, mostly political prisoners, “socially undesirable” (Jews, Roma and Sinti, homosexuals, Jehovah’s Witnesses) as well as Polish and Soviet citizens. At least 30.000 people were murdered in the camp, most of them were Soviet POWs. Today the former Nazi concentration camp is a museum and a memorial site. It is located in Oranienburg, a town some 35 km (22 mi) north of Berlin.

Visiting Sachsenhausen is a perfect one-day trip for those who stay in Berlin and want to learn more about the history of the Second World War and the Nazi regime. In order to grasp the context of your visit better we recommend joining our Welcome to Berlin and Communist Berlin free tours.
