The burden of being German (1)

Oranienburg, KZ Sachsenhausen


KZ Sachsenhausen was a Nazi concentration camp 35 km north of Berlin, used for political prisoners, homosexuals and jews from 1936 to the end of the Third Reich in May 1945.

Some 30,000 inmates died there from exhaustion, disease, malnutrition or pneumonia. Many were executed or died as the result of brutal medical experimentation.

Today Sachsenhausen is a memorial and museum.
