The Death March Memorial in the Belower Forest was opened in April 2010 on the occasion of the 65th anniversary of the liberation. It is centred around the 20,000 m² area of historic woodland. This is where more than 16,000 prisoners of the Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp had to camp in the open air at the end of April 1945. Many trees carry inscriptions from prisoners. In addition to the forest, the new open-air exhibition "April 1945: The Death March of the Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp Prisoners" with written texts, photos, documents, drawings and numerous reports from survivors, tells the story of the evacuation of the Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp, the Death March, the forest camp in Below and the liberation. In the former museum building, which was badly damaged in a far-right arson attack in 2002, there is an educational project workshop, which offers a wide range of options for historic learning in an authentic site.
