On this private tour, you’ll visit the Memorial Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp, located about 45 minutes north of Berlin.
A total of around 200,000 people (especially political opponents, Soviets, and Jews) were imprisoned, put into forced labour, tortured, or killed at Sachsenhausen. In the late summer of 1941, a mass shooting range was built, which saw the murder of tens of thousands of Soviet prisoners of war.
The evacuation of the camp by the SS began on the morning of April 21, 1945, when the Red Army was only a few kilometres away. The remaining prisoners and other camp inmates were forced to embark upon a cruel “death march” in terrible conditions to flee. Many died or were killed during this ordeal, before surviving prisoners and camp commanders were finally intercepted by Soviet forces in the following weeks.
It is important to us to present the history of Sachsenhausen and the Third Reich camp system in as much detail as possible, while also remaining sensitive to its impact, and respectful of those who tragically suffered and lost their lives.
We base our private tour of this memorial on the most up-to-date specialist literature, as well as numerous eyewitness reports from the time. It is not our aim to shock; however, we do believe it’s important to do justice to the events that took place at Sachsenhausen between 1936 and 1945.
This tour is essential education for anyone wishing to understand the devastating legacy of Nazi concentration camps before and during the Second World War. However, we understand that visiting the memorial may be too emotionally triggering for some visitors.
Note that we will include a stop for coffee and/or something to eat (at your own expense) and can add in additional breaks whenever you like.
Our Berlin tour guides are more than just guides — they are true characters of the city, with deep knowledge of Berlin’s history, art and politics. Some of them were eyewitnesses to the Cold War, and all of them enthusiastic ambassadors of their city. As our guest, we want you to feel welcomed and catered to. Our guides will always take the time to answer your questions and can adapt the itinerary to suit your personal wishes and interests.
As this is a private experience, we can tailor the tour to your wishes and can omit areas of the facility if desired.
