Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp Memorial

The Sachsenhausen concentration camp memorial is located approximately 30 kilometres north of Berlin. This concentration camp was built in 1936 and served as a model and training camp for later concentration camps. After World War II, a Soviet special camp was located there from 1945 to 1950.

“The Soviet soldiers who first entered Sachsenhausen had spoken of liberation. I didn’t quite realise what that meant. I had never thought about liberation. My only endeavour had always been to ensure my survival from one day to the next.”
