The Sachsenhausen concentration camp, located 35 km from Berlin, was built in 1936 as one of the tenebrous measures of the Third Reich. It is one of more than fifteen concentration camps both inside and outside German borders. In principle, these places were intended for forced labor. Hence the phrase in the entry "Arbeit macht frei", which was actually originally found in extermination camps, such as Auschwitz, as a result of the Wannsee Laws of 1942.

Being the third camp to be built, after Dachau (Munich) and Buchenwald (central Germany), visiting the Sachsenhausen memorial gives us the opportunity to understand the increasingly violent evolution of these overwhelming places. Once in the town of Oranienburg, accessible from Berlin with the S1 line (with direct connection to Friedrichstr.) and some regional trains (which tend to be less frequent, but somewhat more direct), you can walk about 20 minutes to the memorial and meditate on the journey of the prisoners who arrived by train, first to that train station, and then had to walk a path that today still maintains intact part of its structure.

In an excursion of about 4 hours, we will walk through the streets of Oranienburg, along the "Death March" promenade until we reach the Memorial. Here are some details about the tour.

  • It is not allowed to eat, drink or smoke inside the memorial (there are designated areas for this purpose).
  • There will be a short break of 20-30 minutes for lunch (lunch not included in the tour).
  • 2 will be donated to the memorial for its maintenance.
  • A round-trip ticket or day ticket from the ABC zones will be required (Transportation is approximately one hour between the train connection and the walk to the memorial).
