Sachsenhausen-Oranienburg Memorial

While Berlin is great for parties and long walks with friends, it is also a place where grand and terrifying political events took place. It's worth taking a half-day trip to get a sobering look at the Sachsenhausen-Oranienburg Nazi concentration camp. You will learn about the more than 200,000 prisoners that passed through the camp’s gates from 1936 to the end of the Third Reich in May 1945. The camp mainly held political prisoners throughout World War II.
