No bread today at the Nazi Bakery

DSC_1318

I had found this building sometime ago on Google maps, but did not know what the place was used for, after loads of research. I found out it was the Bakery that supplied Sachsenhausen concentration camp with bread, Built in 1941 it was used to supply the main camp with bread and the local population with bread and such like.

During the war it was producing 30,000 loaves a day, baked by 80 prisoners, working 12 hour shifts. It survived the bombing raids of World War 2 and was closed until 1946. when the bakery reopened, and it was finally closed in May 1991. The building has been listed as an historical building.

After a very long piss off walk in such hot weather, I came to the lane which led to the bakery, after a bit I came to the main gates and climbed over. walking around the main building looking for a way in, bars on door ways and windows, (well it was where prisoners worked) I suppose.

walking around looking and saying to myself theirs got to be away in there some fricking way, I came across a first floor window without bars and open, that was my way in, found a load of old wooden crates that was conveniently right near by, and stacked them up and pulled myself up through  the window.
