Re:nember them! In this workcamp you can get involved in the preservation of the former Nazi women's concentration camp Ravensbrück as well as the memorial site subcamp "Waldbau". You will spend one week at each memorial site. _________ 1st WEEK IN RAVENSBRÜCK: Study part: Join us for the first week to get to know the Ravensbrück Memorial and its history. We will deal intensively and artistically with biographies of imprisoned women and survivors who were imprisoned in the Ravensbrück concentration camp and afterwards in the subcamp Waldbaulager, which is part of the Ravensbrück concentration camp. Work part: Various maintenance works in the exterior of the memorial and the collections. _________ 2nd WEEK IN WALDBAU: Study part: In the second week we leave the memorial and take the biographies to the still young memorial site "Waldbaulager" in Mecklenburg Vorpommern. There we deepen our artistic exploration of the lives of these women. Who were they? Who did they want to be? What did they experience? What did they remember? Work part: Various maintenance work at the Waldbau memorial site to make the memorial site permanently (more) accessible.

1st partner: The former women's concentration camp Ravensbrück was built in 1939 near the small town of Fürstenberg/Havel. Until its liberation in April 1945, over 120,000 women and children, 20,000 men and 1,000 underage young women from the so-called "Uckermark Youth Protection Camp" were imprisoned there. The prisoners came from more than 40 nations. They had to perform forced labor in various sectors, e.g. for SS factories or the Siemens company. Their daily lives were marked by hunger, mistreatment and poor hygienic conditions. Tens of thousands of prisoners were killed. Today, the Ravensbrück Memorial preserves traces and records, promotes remembering and research, and creates a place for active learning and encounters. Every year, international work camps are organized in cooperation with the memorial. 2nd partner: zeitlupe | Stadt.Geschichte & Erinnerung
