Travel Tips for Oranienburg

The Jail Cell Block Sign

by grishaV1

Even more so than the barracks where prisoners slept, and in a way more than the pathology corpses cellar, this was a place a "detainee" was sent to be not only killed but mercilessly tortured. Again we went and I write these things because we want never for anything like this to happen again.

In A Prison Cell

by grishaV1

To sit listening to others around you screaming, moaning and groaning in pain, praying or cursing. Even if you were never touched you would always be scarred by this. A number of well-known personages died in these cells. Men of peace, scholars, those who protested against the Nazis. Imagine to hear the boots coming, gruff German being spoken: "Do they come for you now or for another?" Intensely cold, starving, beaten, many knowing their families have already being put to death or that it is imminent. How deplorable the cruelty of men! Even if only one person was treated so it was wrong and should not be denied. Numbers are immaterial to that point. Whether 6 or 6 million, it was wrong.

Visitors Centre

by alancollins

The new visitors information centre was opened in 2004 in former workshops that were used for the maintenance of weapons. I would recommend paying it a visit to obtain guide books, leaflets and audio aids. Unfortunately it must have been a bad day for the staff when I visited as the reception was slightly icy. The site is open daily from 0830-1800 between 15th March until 14th October and daily from 0830-1630 between 15th October until 14th March. The museums, visitors centre and the book shop are all closed on Mondays.
Outside of the visitor's centre is a model of camp. To the left of centre is the triangle shape of the camp which forms only a small part of the total area of the whole camp.

GDR National Memorial

by alancollins

The monument that dominates Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp is the GDR’s National Memorial right in the centre of the camp. It stands so 40 metres high and the 3 sides of the monument have red triangles. The Nazis used different symbols, mainly triangles, letters and colours to identify prisoners in their concentration camps. A red triangle donated a political prisoner, social democrat, freemason or anarchist. It is believed red was chosen as it was a colour used by communists and the most hated political group of the Nazis.

Barrack 39

by alancollins

Barrack 39 now housed a museum depicting everyday life for prisoners in the camp. Stories from 20 different prisoners relate their life in the camp. The building was also badly damaged during the fire bomb attack in 1992 but shows none of the damage that has been left in barrack 38.
