Learn about the camp system and the Holocaust

Set off from Berlin with a specially trained guide to learn about the concentration camp system and the holocaust. Arriving in the town of Oranienburg by train, you will be lead through the site of one of the most important forced labour camps in Nazi Germany. Your tour will cover the entire history of the site, from its inception in 1936, its use as a Soviet “Special Camp”, and its transformation into a place of memorial, remembrance and respect.

Social distance is important. This tour is limited to 20 participants to keep both you and our team safe.

What you will see

For this tour, Original Berlin Walks’ guides are trained to unravel the complex history of the Holocaust. Using witness accounts and historical research, our qualified guides shed light on what life was like as a prisoner.

You will see the camp prison, where key members of opposition to Nazi terror were interned, included WWII prisoners of war. Hear how British RAF officer “Jimmy” James, one of the “Great Escapers” managed to escape Sachsenhausen. Take some free time in the site museums to reflect on the tragic history of the “Third Reich”, and stand before the remains of “Station Z”, where thousands of executions took place at the hands of the SS.

We treat the memorial site with the utmost respect. All of our guides are officially licensed by the site, and engage in further courses offered by the memorial foundation throughout the year.

Your guide will sensitively explain how different victim groups were persecuted by the SS Guards, including Jehova’s Witnesses, homosexuals, Sinti & Roma, and political prisoners. An ongoing discussion will be conducted as you visit different locations across the site, including the roll call yard and work details such as the Infirmary Barracks, the Shoe Testing Track.
