Tour 2 (6 hours)
Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp Memorial
The Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp, located 35km north of Berlin, was the first camp built on the orders of the Nazis regime in 1936, and served as a model for all the other camps.
The tour includes the entire camp, and is not intended as a casual walk, but a visit to inform visitors and encourage reflection and understanding of what modern man is capable: that hatred of and malevolence towards one’s fellow man has no limits.
Among many other sites, you will visit:
The jewish compounds, the original compounds where Jews were crammed into until 1942, when they were sent to Auschwitz to be exterminated.
High security prison and penal cells, prison within the prison, build to hold political opponents of Hitler.
Camp kitchen, and cellar, place used for peeling potatoes.
Ditch, firing squad wall and gallows, original construction, where over 20,000 war prisoners were executed.
Station ‘Z’; gas chambers and crematorium, chilling place, silent witness to the crimes which were committed under the Nazi terror, hitherto unknown to humanity.
Sanitorium, place where sadistic medical experiments were carried out with hundreds of people, many of whom were young children…and many more places too numerous to name.
We will also visit:
SS Troop Camp
Watch Tower “A”
Soviet Special Camp
and much more…..
