KZ Sachsenhausen - Concentration camp (Oranienburg)


The administrative centre of all concentration camps was located here and it became a training centre for Schutzstaffel (SS), It was originally not intended as an extermination camp, however in 1943 a gas chamber and ovens were built to kill larger numbers of prisoners.

It was a Prisoner labor camp and here they've run the Operation Bernhard, also shown in the film Die Fälscher- The Counterfeiters, but they were also working for Heinkel (aircraft), AEG and Siemens.

The compound has been vandalized by Neo-Nazis several times.
