About this activity
While the Nazis were hosting the 1936 Olympic games, slave laborers were being forced to build a huge 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, more than 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.

Rob Shaw was excellent! He was very knowledgeable and a great speaker. I would definitely take another tour with him.

Xavier is a born teacher; he started before we even got on the train by explaining the status of the Jewish community in Berlin and Germany before Hitler and how the relentless propaganda effectively isolated the Jews and other "undesirables". He made a tough subject understandable, and at the same time, provided a wealth of detail that put each of us in the position of considering how we would react in similar circumstances. On top of that, at the end he guided each of us to the proper transit stop for our next destination. We highly recommend seeking out Xavier for your guide. We are historians and we learned a lot.

This was a very good tour of an obviously very serious part of history. Our guide, Stephen G was very knowledgeable, informative and handled the tour very well. Definitely recommended not only for history buffs, but anyone interested in seeing what humans can do to each other....

I nearly allowed my experience to be tainted by a Scottish guide who automatically assumed I was angry when I asked a relative question because I was a black woman who was passionate about a subject! Horrific!

I highly recommend this tour, especially if you can get tour guide DAVID to lead you around the site. He made my recent visit something I will never forget. He was very well informed and perfectly handled the difficult and sensitive issues of such an emotional experience. There is a lot of walking out in the open areas of the camp, so if you go in summer, bring an umbrella for some shade! M. Carpenter Houston, Texas

I did this tour with my mother in December 2017. Our guide was a girl called Beth - a welsh girl who now lives in Berlin. An excellent tour - informative and memorable. The guide's knowledge was amazing and very easy to understand. On the train back to Berlin, Beth took the time to check with all of us where we were going to - and advised us of train connections etc. I would highly recommend this trip.
