    More than 200,000 people were imprisoned in Sachsenhausen between 1936 and 1945. At first, the prisoners were primarily political opponents of the Nazi regime. However, people that were defined by the National Socialists as racially or biologically inferior were later included.

    By 1939, there were a large number of citizens from the occupied European states imprisoned here. Tens of thousands of people died of starvation, disease, forced labor and mistreatment, or they were victims of the systematic extermination by the Schutzstaffel, or the SS. Thousands of other prisoners died during the “death marches” that followed the evacuation of the camp in April of 1945. At that time, approximately 3,000 sick prisoners, along with the doctors and nurses who had stayed behind in the camp, were freed by Soviet and Polish soldiers.

    This tour features a visit to the punishment cells, gallows, gas chambers and burial pits located inside the prison. Hear stories of prisoner bravery as well as the chilling atrocities that took place at the camp, which now serves as a national memorial to the prisoners who lived and died here. Your tour ends with a return train trip to Berlin.

    Our guide (sorry I forgot her name) was extremely knowledgeable and gave us great insight to the sad and horrible history which happened here. Be prepared to bring your own snacks and drinks. It’s a long day but well worth it.

    Ioana was a very knowledgeable tour guide. The concentration camp is very large but she provided a very detailed experience. Lots of walking and be prepared with water and food if needed. Tour time was very close to 6 hours (a little longer because transportation times range) but included all travel time.

    Mike was our tour guide and he was seriously great. He answered all questions and shared the stories of this concentration camp with the justice it deserves, and in a way that was easy to retain. I would strongly suggest this tour. There is a lot of walking so comfortable shoes are a must. It was pretty easy to get to the meeting point. We really learned so much on this tour. Thanks Mike!!!
