Sachsenhausen is a part of Oranienburg, ca. 33 km to the north of Berlin. Sachsenhausen was one of the earliest concentration camps in Germany, built in 1936. For example, German people who were in opposition to Nazi policy, homosexuals, so-called asocials, criminals, Jews, and during the war especially people from occupied countries were imprisoned, forced to work and a lot of them were murdered. Between 1945 and 1950 a part of this area was used as a so-called Special Camp of the Soviet Secret Service.Now it is a place for studies and to commemorate the victims: the memorial site GedenkstEtte and Museum Sachsenhausen (Memorial and Museum Sachsenhausen).

If you are enthusiastic about nature and protecting the environment, the come to the MErkische Schweiz Nature Park: 40km to the east of Berlin, the park not only offers unique natural landscapes, but also the backdrop to our project.

There will also be young people from the local area on-site. People and pets live on the grounds of the Environmental Education Center Three Oaks – and often many guests: children, families, seminar groups. Together with you we want to build some roofs as rain protection – for the summer kitchen in the tipi village and for the storage of wood and construction material. For activities in between Three Oaks (Drei Eichen) with its terrain offers many opportunities to learn about plants and animals, nature conservation and alternative ways of life and to actively participate.In different nature areas in the nature park MErkische Schweiz we will carry out landscape conservation work together on several days. In doing so, we will ensure the protection of the native plants that grow there. Historically, these sites were created and maintained by a lot of manual labor – mowing adapted to the season and grazing by sheep and goats. In our workcamp, we help with that. We also renew sections of hiking trails.All work will take place outdoors. Besides this, there will be a diverse programme of environmental educational activities for you to take part inhttp://www.dreichen.de/
