i thought there were no camps marked as "death camps" in German soil?
True. But the Holocaust always survives and thrives in hazy darkness, like a vampire. People are obedient to it and scared of it; a vampire that haunts the town, terrifies the townspeople and keeps them in line. That is the Holocaust. Who are the townspeople? You and me. All of us in the West.
A googling for "Sachsenhausen death camp" (with quotation marks, i.e. this exact phrase) turns up 561 google hits. Some of these are for a Soviet 'documentary' film from 1946 full of enough lies to make even a true-blue Holocaust Believer blush.
There are several purportedly sober, Holocaust-belief Enforcement websites that use this phrase ("Sachsenhausen death camp"), including JewishVirtualLibrary and Jewish Gen ("an affiliate of the Museum of Jewish Heritage, a Living Memorial to the Holocaust"). The U.S. media has also used it with some regularity.
Here are two U.S. media articles picked up by my simple googling (no doubt many more would be found in a stricter search of News archives):
A New York Times story from 1992
Fire Razes Memorial to Jews at Nazi Camp
Sept. 27, 1992
A building honoring the memory of Jews killed in the Sachsenhausen death camp during World War II was destroyed in a fire overnight, German police said. [...] Prime Minister Yitzakh Rabin called on Germans to fight the wave of neo-Nazism and rightist violence in their country. [....] Around 100,000 people, including up to 10,000 Jews, were killed at the Sachsenhausen camp, near Oranienburg, 18 miles north of Berlin.
An ABC News story from 2000 uses it too (below). It is one of those "ex-Nazi discovered! Deported for his major crimes! Justice at last!" quasi-yellow-journalistic stories we regularly get -- to my surprise, that we still
get, even in 2018 (now with the 90+ set all that is left, and those often teenagers during the war...)
NY Judge Orders Ex-Nazi Deported
By SUE MASTERMAN / Vienna, Aug. 15, 2000
A New York immigration court ordered self-confessed ex-Nazi Michael Gruber, 84, deported. Gruber, of New City, NY, has admitted to his role as a Waffen SS guard in Oranienburg, Germany.
Gruber denies that he served in the SS Death’s Head Guard Battalion at the Sachsenhausen concentration camp there. But the Nazi regime’s obsession with control, carefully documenting every move of every person in Hitler’s Third Reich, indicated otherwise.
Immigration Judge Robert Weisel said captured Nazi documents...proved the court’s satisfaction that Gruber served at the Sachsenhausen death camp from January 1943 to September 1944.
‘A Place of Death’
Judge Weisel ruled that Sachsenhausen was “a place of death and extreme human suffering,”
It's good to know that a Jewish judge in the USA "ruled" on this, fifty-five years after the camp was closed down.
But I love this line especially:
Gruber denies that he served...[b]ut the Nazi regime’s obsession with control, carefully documenting every move of every person in Hitler’s Third Reich, indicated otherwise.
Do you see the same thing I see about this line? The potential problem for Holocaust Believers that is raised?
