Take a tour of the Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp with The Original Berlin Concentration Camp Memorial Tour. Discover the brutal history of the facility that was primarily used for political prisoners but also the administrative center of the Nazi concentration camp system.

We will explain stories of tragedy and triumph. Explain how everyday life was in the camp, and some of the tactics used here.

Stories of Triumph and Tragedy
Ever Day Life In the Camp
Lying just outside Berlin, Sachsenhausen was the first purpose built camp established under Heinrich Himmler. Originally conceived as a place to subjugate enemies of the Nazi’s, some 200,000 people were imprisoned here and subjected to systematic torture, starvation, forced labor and some of the worst living conditions. As you tour the memorial you will uncover the truths about the camp where 50,000 people were brutally murdered by the Nazi’s and 60,000 held captive until 1950 during the Soviet era. Today the Sachsenhausen Memorial stands as a reminder to the horrors of the 20th century.
