The former women concentration camp of Ravensbrueck was established in 1939 near the small city of Fuerstenberg/Havel. Until the liberation in April 1945, more than 120.000 women and children, 20.000 men and 1.000 young minor women of the so called “Uckermark Youth Protective Custody Camp” were incarcerated there. The prisoners came from more than 30 nations. They had to do forced labour in different sectors, e.g. for SS-factories or the company of Siemens. Their daily life was characterised by hunger, mistreatments and bad hygienic conditions. Tens of thousands of prisoners were killed. Today, Ravensbrueck Memorial Museum keeps traces and records, enhances remembrance and research, and creates a place of active learning and get-togethers.
Outdoor work on the Memorial ground; assistance work for the Museology Department of the Memorial.
