Grim Reminders of the Holocaust – Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp

I have often wanted to know more about the suffering of the Jews & atrocities committed against them during the Nazi regime. It was therefore only natural to want to see a real concentration camp if that were ever possible.

During my visit to Germany this became a reality & I was able to visit an old concentration camp which is now a well preserved musuem. It stands as a cold reminder of one of  man’s worst crimes against humanity.

Located outside Berlin is the Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp in Oranienburg.  A former Nazi camp, it serves as a grim reminder of the extent of  man’s depravities…& the suffering endured by millions of  Jews as a result.

For those interested in reading more on this topic, I would recommend the following books – The Diary of Anne Frank,  Man’s Search for Meaning by Viktor Frankl &  The Hiding Place by Corrie Ten Boom.

Thank God for freedom!

  1. A very sad time in history. Even worse is the fact that genocide continues in this so called modern world.
    The world still watches and does nothing to stop it..
