Description

Central to the network of inhumane concentration camps, Sachsenhausen was also an SS training facility. Learn of its atrocities and gain historical perspective on its Nazi and Soviet use. This full-day tour offers poignant insight into one of the 20th century’s most profound brutalities.

On the fringes of a national park lies the infamous site of Sachsenhausen. Incarcerating primarily political prisoners, the camp saw the deaths of 30,000 people. Witness its preserved barracks and sparse living conditions, observe the remains of the hugely emotive execution facilities, and begin to grasp the magnitude of the crimes committed here.

Learn about the daily life of its prisoners and about its counterfeit currency operation, the largest ever seen and a Nazi strategy to affect the economies of the allied forces. Hear how the horrors continued after WWII as the Soviets commandeered it for their own undesirable means.

Pause for thought at the memorial, contemplating the harrowing sights and remembering the tens of thousands of lives lost in the pursuit of one man’s perverse ideal.

We had a great learning experience in this tour. Our guide Heidi was very knowledegable and willing to make conversation with us. She was willing to answer many of our questions. The history and all stories behind this historic site was heartbreaking but inspiring at the same time. I highly recommend this tour.

The tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. He answered all of our questions and made the tour interesting. It was a hard tour because of the subject, but I highly recommend the tour.

Georgia our tour guide was amazing! This is a tour that everyone should so that history may never be repeated. Our 15 year old gained much wisdom on this day as we all did. Thank you to Berlin for preserving your history, good and bad, for future generations may understand. We are from the U.S., sadly many in our country are trying to destroy ours.
