Our tour guide was Warren (Darren), the Irish guy. He was very knowledgable about the topic as it is what he is passionate about. He made sure all we all knew where we were going, so that no one stayed behind. He stopped along the way to introduce the Nazi era. He made sure he everyone understood what he was saying and was open to questions and comments. He told the history from an unbiased point of view leaving the information to our interpretation and conclusions. He delivered the information in such a way that made you feel you were there, maybe sitting in a college class, being immersed in all this history. He was wonderful.

Description

At the Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp just outside Berlin, tens of thousands of people perished at the hands of the Nazis in conditions of appalling brutality.

The camp became a training ground for SS troops and the administrative headquarters for the whole concentration camp system. After the Nazis were defeated, the Soviets used Sachsenhausen as a camp for their own political enemies – thousands more were to perish over the next five years.

For this tour, our expert guides are trained to unravel the complex history of the Holocaust. Using witness accounts and historical research, they shed light on what life was like as a prisoner and how some were able to survive. They also address why and how Sachsenhausen and the concentration camp system were established by the Nazis.

Just an amazing experience
Our guide was Beth, who has studied modern German history and presented information in a very clear way. She provides context into the wider nazi machine, how it came to be and how Sachsenhaussen fitted into this.

She alone made the tour what it was. She was nothing short of Sensational and cannot thank her enough.

Take good comfortable shoes as there is a lot of walking and take food and drinks as there is nowhere to buy snacks or drinks.
Very informative.
Sam our guide had a great deal of knowledge and was easy to chat too.
