What You Can Expect
For nearly a decade the SS imprisoned some 200,000 Jews, socialists, Communists, and liberals, among other opponents to the Nazi regime. The punishment cells, gas chambers and burial pits that you will see on this tour can be overwhelming, but your guide will put the site's history into context with expert knowledge about one of the darkest periods of the 20th century.
At the end of your time at Sachsenhausen, meet your host to finish the day-long trip with a train ride back to either east or west Berlin (own expense).
Our tour guide Cesar deftly guided us through this somber place. Without his stories, and historical anecdotes of life and death inside Sachsenhausen, we would have been lost in the noise of pictures, words, and images of the concentration camp. The camp is spare, having lost most of its original buildings to Soviet forces who liberated the camp, but what remains is a somber reflection of the inhumanity inflicted upon the prisoners who were interred here. It was here that the Nazi SS began to develop and perfect their machinery of killing, they then exported to the larger death camps at Dachau and Auschwitz.
This tour was superb. Caesar, the guide, was fantastic. His knowledge was superb, he was interesting to listen to, answered all of our questions, was on top of things all of the time. We were slightly delayed because of train problems so he checked with us all and extended the tour so that we didnt miss out. I would 100 recommend this tour and 100 recommend Caesar, he was fantastic. From Tan and Stu together for 18 years!.
