Opened in the summer of 1936, Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp was used for the detainment and exploitation of 200,000 political prisoners and racial enemies of the National socialist regime. More than 10,000 inmates died there as a result of starvation, disease, and systematic murder perpetrated by the SS.

This tour takes you to the dark heart of National Socialism, visiting the nucleus of the former concentration camp at Sachsenhausen, and other sites in Berlin relevant to the atrocities of Nazism. It is candid, confronting, and moving – an important journey to make for those who have never visited a concentration camp memorial before. Our professional, local guide will be with you every step of the way, adding important context to your visit, delving into the history of the period, and telling stories of the everyday bravery of the exploited and incarcerated.
