This is a must see. Man’s inhumanity to man is on full display here, at its worst. A compelling, upsetting, horrifying look at the Nazi atrocities of World War 2. This should never happen again but, unfortunately, it does happen over and over, every day...More

Well presented, gives a good idea of the camps the Nazis run. No original barracks shown, but their footprints marked. A museum shows what the place had and did. It was mostly a work camp, free slave labor for a brick factory and a weapons...More

Neuengamme is not too far of a drive out of Hamburg. We had our own car and were driving around Germany so it was easy for us. I am sure there are busses that will take you there. The grounds have been moderately maintained. It...More
