Home > Tours from Berlin > Sachsenhausen concentration camp

German SS established Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp before World War 2, in 1936 near Oranienburg only 36 km north from Berlin. It was a major concentration camp for the Berlin area and at the beginning mainly political prisoners were held here. Later more and more German Jews were sent to the camp and with the beginning of World War 2 in September 1939 thousands of Poles were deported to Sachsenhausen from the Polish territory – mainly teachers, priests, government officials, and other national and community leaders, in an attempt to eliminate the Polish educated elite and thereby prevent organized resistance to German rule in Poland. Also Czech citizens were deported and later prisoners from Soviet Russia. After opening Auschwitz concentration camp by German Nazis, number of Jewish prisoners decreased as many of them were transported to Auschwitz. After World War 2 when in 1945 Soviet Russia occupied region of Berlin and Oranienburg, facilities Sachsenhausen camp was used until 1950 by Russian NKVD – law enforcement agency of Soviet Union.
