About the ride
Your day will begin with a personal pickup by your English-speaking driver from your hotel or apartment in Berlin. After a short 1 hour ride, you will reach Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp- the concentration camp where thousands of innocent Jews were brutally executed by the Gestapo, the secret police of Nazi Germany.
Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp was built a few years before The World War II has started. Located 35 km from the capital Berlin it was a training center for The Schutzstaffel officers. During the first years of the camp's existence, the people were executed in ditches, either by hanging or shooting. However, the later invention of gas chambers facilitated the means to kill even larger groups of prisoners. In the end, around 30 000 people were executed in Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp, most of whom were the innocent Jews.
While walking the paths of this vast concentration camp, you will learn about the tragic history of the Jewish nation as well as the atrocities committed during by Nazis during The World War II. Not only you will understand how the daily life in the concentration camp looked like but also will get the chance to see the location of execution places.
Learning about the dark human history in Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp will be a shocking lifetime experience which you will never forget.
