Sachsenhausen was created as a model for the concentration camps and later for the development of prison extermination systems.
What kind of prisoners were imprisoned in Sachsenhausen? Why? What was the day to day of these men? At what moment is its extermination put into practice?
We will visit the Patio de Revista guarded by the "eye that sees everything" Tower A, the Jewish barracks, where they will be imprisoned for their future extermination.
We will visit the maximum security prison, where some of the prisoners suffered the persecution of the GESTAPO and the rigid control of the SS.
The infirmaries and the "Station Z" will be our last destination. In them, we will be able to approach the racial theory, like justification for the genetic sanitation of Germany, and the different experimental devices, including a gas chamber, for the extermination of prisoners.
We can not avoid the final destination of the camp after its liberation, just after the Second World War, first becoming the largest Soviet Concentration Camp on German soil and later in a memorial center of the extinct GDR.
