Sachsenhausen  became a training ground for the SS and the site of the headquarters of the whole concentration camp system. After the Nazis were defeated, the Soviets used Sachsenhausen as a camp for their own political enemies – thousands more were to perish over the next five years. 

Our skilled guides will respectfully address the following topics on this visit to Sachsenhausen: 
-Why Sachsenhausen and the concentration camp system were established by the Nazis.
-How the conditions in the camp worsened in 1939. (Visit the barracks where many of the thousands of Jewish prisoners sent to the camp after the so-called “Kristallnacht”).
-How the SS used the execution complex at Sachsenhausen to perpetrate acts of mass murder, including the killing of 10,000 Soviet POWs in 1941.
-How some Jewish prisoners survived by working in the forgery workshop, counterfeiting millions of pounds sterling.
-How the Soviets turned Sachsenhausen into a Special Camp for their own enemies after the war, who they imprisoned, and the fate of these prisoners.
-And finally, how the East German regime manipulated the history of the camp for its own ends.
