What You Can Expect
While the Nazis were hosting the 1936 Olympic games, slave laborers were being forced to build a huge new concentration camp just north of Berlin, intended to hold political 'enemies' of the Nazi regime political, racial and 'asocial'. Of the 200,000 people interned, over 50,000 lost their lives before the camp was liberated by the Soviets in 1945.
The camp was then used by the Soviets until 1950 to detain former Nazis, German soldiers and political opponents of the communists. Many thousands more died from malnutrition and disease.
The key to this walking tour is the informative and illuminating narrative provided by your expert tour guide. During your 3-hour visit to the camp you'll learn important background history of the site as you walk through the Appellplatz parade ground, the Jewish Barrack, punishment cells, execution grounds and crematorium, Station Z, the Pathology Laboratory and camp hospital.
This tour was researched by historian Gabriel Fawcett, who is publishing an important witness account of the camp. All tour guides have their own special insights into the history of Sachsenhausen, and are experienced in unraveling the complex history of the Third Reich and the Holocaust.
Despite the cold, grey day, our guide Lorna made this tour very worthwhile. She is very knowledgeable and compassionate about the subject, as well as being very helpful and approachable. I highly recommend both Lorna and the tour.
it was great! we had a great guide Lorna, who told us more then we even could imagine. Very interesting thank you!
Very interesting and worthwhile tour. The weather for us wasnt great on the day, but only added to the atmostphre. Our tour guide Phillipa was great and kept us in good spirits despite the weather!
Pip was well informed, intelligent and obviously emotionally involved with the topic. She was extremely well organized with the element of time getting to the trains, keeping track of time with the tour.
My young cousin and I learned a lot. In addition, I learned how easy it is to book a tour on VIATOR, which I absolutely will book tours from now on.
This was a very interesting tour. The guide was very respectful of all that the people of the Holocaust had gone through, and helped us understand a lot more of what was going on in the concentration camps. He talked to us about all the different people groups under both Hitler and the Communist that were housed at this camp. The stories, although sad, were also inspiring and heroic. Our guide was a native German, but he spoke excellent English and was very easy to understand. I highly recommend this tour!
What a moving experience. Caroline gave a very informed opinion that coming from a German gave an insight into how camps such as this could come about. Lots of information throughout the day all at an understandable level that added to the visit. Could not have been better in anyway, wouldn't hesitate to recommend.
Laurna was a Brilliant guide and passionate about bringing to light the history of Sachsenhausen.
Fantastic trip. Carlos our guide made this trip very interesting and informative.
Fantastic touching tour. Guide had a lot of knowledge but it rained suddenly without knowing so somewhere to buy ponchos would have been handy. Would recommend to all especially since we were running late and the group waited. Great experience
Very informative with a guide Lorna who was passionate about the subject matter and brought the reality of war back to life. Everyone should visit one concentration camp memorial. Excellent day out.
