Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp Memorial - not a fun day, but an important one

 stars
Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp is around forty five minutes out of Central Berlin, you can go there yourself or as part of a tour - which I did with New Berlin Tours (they donate a percentage of the profit to the memorial). It's definately not a fun day, but I believe everyone should visit a concentration camp while in Germany. It's very important to remember the past so we don't repeat history.

This particular concentration camp was a model and set the standard for the camps to be built after it. It really made me upset at one stage it made me cry, there's an odd feeling in the air here. The strangest part about the camp is that in 1945 the Russian's found the camp and put up propaganda statues, which are still spotted all over the place. They represent the hardships the Russian prisoners faced here but don't mention the other victims such as the Jews and homosexuals. They also continued to use the camp themselves and filled it with their political adversaries.

To get to the camp you'll need an ABC day ticket which costs 6.30 euro or if you want to go on the tour it leaves from Brandenburg Gate at 11am every day but Monday when the camp is closed. [more ]
