Owner description: More than 100,000 Jews, communists, intellectuals, gypsies and homosexuals were killed by Nazis between 1936 and 1945 in this concentration camp. Some of the buildings have been preserved in their original form including barracks, and a pathology department where Nazis performed medical experiments on the inmates.

Tour guide Taylor did such a wonderful job not only educating us along the way but also giving time to process and contemplate. Very humbling and important experience.

This is a place where learning, reflection, and remembering can happen. Excellent organization of the self guided tour. I honestly think that although this place was sad, and the artifacts and stories made me tearful, it is important to remember those who were deprived of their humanity.
When I was doing the self-guided tour, something strange happened to me as I was going through the underground tunnel in the infirmary barracks. In fact, as I got to the other side, I learned that dead corpses were kept in that tunnel. I wonder if this place may be haunted?

Everyone visiting Germany should visit a Concentraion Camp out of respect for those who suffered or lost their lives during the Nazi regime. Our guide, Dennis, was a little verbose, but he told the story of one many Harry (?) and his experience. The story brought to life what the prisoners were going through and gave a greater understanding of this part of history. It is important that we do not forget what took place.

It is impossible to write a review of a Concentration Camp. The atrocities that took place in Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp and the philosophical issues are personal and are open to subjective interpretation. Yet, as one should always learn about history as it tends to repeat itself, it is a must visit.

Surprisingly easy to get to although can take about an hour. We got the u bahn to Potsdamer Platz, then the S1 train. Coming out of the station at Orianburg there is a bus stop that takes you straight there. We walked back to the train station and it took about 25 minutes.

We arrived there at 11 am and had to rush the last part and we were amazed that it was 5pm by that time. There is so much to take in as the place covers the earlier years before the 1939-45 war period. It was uncanny to read about the cleansing of Germany based on sexuality, politics, disability, ethnicity and criminality....sounded very familiar given that there is a frightening rise in right wing sentiment spreading across the world. Well worth a visit and I was very surprised how difficult it was to find out information about this place. Plenty to take in, there is a cafe on sight and it is worth getting the audio guide. You can get a guided tour but you would miss all the detail as you are taken around. Emotionally disturbing.
