Full description
Sachsenhausen was one of the most important concentration camps of the Second World War due to its proximity to the capital, Berlin - it is situated 40km north of Berlin. Sachsenhausen operated as a concentration camp from 1936 until 1945. Visiting the Memorial at the former concentration camp of Sachsenhausen, you will be able to better understand how the site operated.

During this visit, you will learn about the kinds of prisoners that were once imprisoned here. Hear about the repressive system that was used in order to control all the prisoners, and about the lives of the soldiers who worked there.

You will cross through the main guard tower (A Tower) where you will read the famous Arbeit Macht Frei (work makes free) sign. Once inside, you will be in the Appelplatz (roll call area). You will be able to visit one of the reconstructed barracks. You will have time to see the exhibition in the former prisoners' kitchen. You will also visit the so-called "Station Z", the mass murder area and its crematorium. You will finish the tour by visiting the infirmary and the pathology building. The Holocaust is a very important part of the history of the 20th Century and it is very important to understand what happened at a place like this. At the end of the visit, you will be driven back to Berlin by car.
