Sachsenhausen was a German concentration camp in Oranienburg (located 35 kilometres north of Berlin, Germany) used primarily for political prisoners from 1933 to the end of the Third Reich in May, 1945. After World War II, when Oranienburg was in the Soviet Occupation Zone, the structure was used as an NKVD special camp until 1950 (NKVD special camp Nr. 7). The remaining buildings and grounds are now open to the public as a museum.
