Memorial and Museum Sachsenhausen was originally built to house political opponents of the Nazi regime. Its purpose gradually expanded, and the camp eventually imprisoned ordinary Jews, intellectuals, gypsies, and homosexuals. Some of the original buildings of the camp complex have been preserved in their original form and are now open to the public as a museum. The existing buildings include several prisoner barracks and a pathology department, where Nazi doctors performed medical experiments on the prisoners. You can take part in one of several weekly guided tours offered here, for which no prior registration is necessary. Memorial and Museum Sachsenhausen is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Oranienburg Edition.

It's one thing to know the story, it's another to be in the place where the facts happened.
