The Sachsenhausen concentration camp

Excellent

The Sachsenhausen concentration camp, located in the town of Oranienburg, was built by the Nazis in 1936 to confine or massively liquidate political opponents, Jews, Gypsies, homosexuals, prisoners of war and Jehovah's Witnesses.

On the other hand, though, we learned about some of the actions that were carried out in the death camp, as this also became one in the final stages of the Holocaust.
