A video game about the student protests of 1939. Coming in Q1 2022 to PC, Mac and iOS.

Train to Sachsenhausen is a history-based game that relates the dramatic events tied to the closing of universities in Czechoslovakia in November 1939.

Through the game, you can experience several days in the life of a student of medicine during demonstrations against the Nazi regime. You will “live through” the funeral of student leader Jan Opletal, arrests made at university dorms, detention at the Ruzyně prison, and afterwards deportation to the Sachsenhausen concentration camp in Germany.

The game also includes a virtual museum put together by professional historians.The museum contains testimonies and memories shared by actual witnesses to that chapter in history, along with period documents and photographs.

The project has been implemented thanks to financial support from the EVZ Foundation as part of its Young People Remember programme.
