Sachsenhausen Memorial Camp
Starting from Kr 2 550,47 SEK / Adult
Experience the chilling grounds of the Sachsenhausen Memorial Camp, one of the first concentration camps established during Nazi Germany. Built in 1936, it was originally created to house political dissidents. However, with the outbreak of WWII, the camp was used to persecute thousands of Jews and others deemed “asocial”. By the beginning of 1945 the prisoner population of Sachsenhausen included some 11,000 Jewish faithful. Today, the camp stands as a difficult and sobering reminder of the past, so that it shall never be forgotten or repeated. Follow in the footsteps of those who lived, worked and died here. Feel the emotional toll it takes to stand amid this Nazi death machine. It’s both a haunting and moving experience that will stay with you forever. Afterwards, unwind on a narrated drive through Berlin. See the iconic Brandenburg Gate, the Holocaust Memorial, and Charlottenburg Palace before returning to the ship.
