Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp
Roam around the eerie halls of one of the concentration camps from the Holocaust and see where the SS or Schutzstaffel practiced their powers over those they deemed racially or biologically inferior - included in this were Jews, homosexuals, Jehovah's Witnesses, "asocials" and Soviet civilians.
Punishment Cells, Execution Grounds and More
As your guide takes you to the camp's many rooms and locations, hear stories about the heartbreaking realities of prisoners' lives. They endured starvation, disease, forced labor and systematic extermination until their tragic deaths. The camp also houses the "pit" where victims were left to rot.
Listen to the incredible stories of the British Royal Marine Commandos' valiant attempts at fighting against the Nazis and the torture they had to endure once captured. Learn about how the son of dictator Joseph Stalin became a prisoner at the camp among other fascinating narratives.
Special Camp No. 7
By 1945, the Sachsenhausen concentration camp was turned into the Soviet Special Camp No. 7 which was purposed as an internment camp for German prisoners at the end of World War II. The prisoners of the Special Camp amounted to 60,000 with 12,000 dying from starvation and disease.
