  • Visited with a school class. It is difficult to comprehend how people can be so cruel. The guide explained that the exhibition was brand new. There are many good posters in both english and german. Wo...  read more »
  • A very interesting, if also eerie oppressive, journey into a dark past. Many individual stories are pointed and goose bumps chasing the next. A rewarding and formative confrontation with sad German history.

  • What distinguishes this from other concentration camp is that here it is the infrastructure around the camp. Staff housing, Executive villas, etc. The feeling of German 40 remain. To get a better sense of the big picture.

  • Many buildings are still in good condition. This camp make you realize the horrors of the Holocaust and how much damage the Germans have done. It reminds me of the concentration camps used in many movies.
  • Concentration camp made with women in mind, many if them put here with they're born and unborn children. As children play out they're feelings and reality, stories tell of kids playing selection and gas chamber on these grounds. Women in this camp had to work just as hard as the ones in other camps, sometimes even harder. Human experiments where also a fact here. The name "kaninchen" were used for the ones jumping around after having their legs cut of at different lengths. As a contrast to the brutalities and gruesomeness of the camp, there is a beautiful memorial by the water. The statue of a prisoner carrying another faces the "sea of tears", and the Ravensbrück-roses bloom in the memory of all the women who had to put up with this camps terrible regime.
  • Really interesting place to visit. Makes you feel close up to the tragedies that happened here only a few years ago. Would recommend everyone to go both here and to the other concentration camps that were built during World War 2.
  • A very interesting display! The truth about the Nazis!
  • I've only read the book "Without hair and without name" then Monday to go to the Memorial. I was from noon until evening the entire grounds alone. Despite 39 years stay of the Soviet army on and around this area succeeded in people, by very good dismantling the plant, reasonably give me, how it looked about 70 years ago. I sat a long time before one of the cabs and before my eyes, I experienced the time schedule between the houses and the headquarters. I had also the gate to the camp site in the eye. I cannot play my feelings, I am today, a week later, with my thoughts still constantly in Ravensbrück and go on Tuesday once again, to look at the exhibitions. I wish with all my heart that was high up there was someone which took the so tortured souls and hearts. I stop to write, because I realize the right words fail me. I'm very sorry!
