Multidimensional Overview of the Nazi Concentration Camp System

With a military historian, this tour provides an unprecedented look into the inner workings of the Sachsenhausen concentration camp system. Considered a model camp, Sachsenhausen was designed to systematically exploit and murder anyone who was deemed undesirable by the Nazi regime.

Located just outside Berlin, Sachsenhausen was one of the earliest concentration camps established by the Nazi regime, serving as both a training center for SS officers and a site of immense suffering for its prisoners.  

The tour offers an opportunity for personal reflection and education that should not be missed. It is a unique experience you won't have if you visit Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp by yourself or go with a large group. You will not only learn about the horrors of the Nazi concentration camps, but will be provided a deep historical insight on the philosophy and ideology of the National Socialist German Workers' Party which led to the creation of a wide network of camps designed to exterminate people of certain ethnicities, religious or political beliefs.
