Memorial and Museum Sachsenhausen, Oranienburg, Germany – Heroes Of Adventure

Memorial and Museum Sachsenhausen, Oranienburg, Germany

The Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp was built in the summer of 1936 by concentration camp prisoners from the Emsland camps. It was the first new camp to be established after Heinrich Himmler was appointed Chief of the German Police in 1936. The design of the grounds was conceived by the SS architects as the ideal concentration camp setting,

More than 200,000 people were imprisoned in the Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp between 1936 and 1945. By 1939 large numbers of citizens from the occupied European states arrived. Tens of thousands of people died of starvation, disease, forced labor and mistreatment, or were victims of the systematic extermination operations of the SS. Thousands of other prisoners died during the death marches following the evacuation of the camp at the end of April 1945
