In 1936, the SS built the Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp next to Oranienburg. Until 1945, more
than 200,000 people from all over Europe were imprisoned here. Tens of thousands died of hunger and diseases and of the effects of forced labour and mistreatment, or were victims of systematic extermination.

From 1945-1950, the Soviet Special Camp No. 7/No. 1 was located on the site.

In 1961, the GDR founded the Sachsenhausen National Memorial. The present Memorial and the Sachsenhausen Museum have been part of the Brandenburg Memorials Foundation since 1993.


THE FRIENDS OF SACHSENHAUSEN is a non-profit organisation which was founded in 1998 by well-known German and international representatives from economy, politics, and cultural life. Our aim is to support the Sachsenhausen Memorial. With the contribution for the tour you directly help to preserve the Sachsenhausen Memorial and Museum.

We are looking forward to meet you!
