Having been somewhat overshadowed by some of better-known camps such as Auschwitz, I think Ravensbrück is definitely a 'must' to visit, most especially because women's narratives in war are so often lost or ignored. When I read Sarah Helm's 2015 book "Ravensbrück: Life and Death in Hitler’s Concentration Camp for Women", I was determined to include Ravensbrück in my first... More

Ravensbruck tends to be less well-known than other concentration camps, yet it is a mere 50 miles or so north of Berlin, about an hour by train. This was the camp, and often final destination for women, and whilst a professional guide might be useful in some respects, I suggest that viewing the site alone has its advantages.. An audio...

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. Worth visiting.

There is no describing the horror of this place which remains mostly intact because it was used as a soviet military base for many years after the war. Drawings and comments by women who were interned here cannot easily be erased from one's memory

I am reading an excellent 800+ page book by Sarah Helm now after visiting this sobering historic site. Fewer people know of it but it is worthwhile to find it and learn who was held in this labor camp where Seimen's had a factory. There are memorials to various prisoners and the setting is quite amazing and hidden from view.... More

Found this place as we cycled Berlin-Copenhagen, well worth an hour or two to see this memorial (you can cycle around the grounds) which is extremely well done. Chilling to think what happened here.

I visited Ravensbruck women's concentration camp on a very cold and snowy day, which brought home to me some of the conditions the inmates must have suffered. Like previous comments, not much is left of the original camp. However, the exhibition and in particular the cell block have been presented in a tasteful manner. One can just imagine the horrors...

I have to say that I have been to most of the historic places in and around Berlin (15+ visits). Ravensbrück is a very important and highly interesting site. I sincerely recommend a guid if you haven't been in any other third reich sites in Berlin. But if have experience from Berlin's many Second World War sites, I do recommend... More

A place of terror set amongst the most beautiful surroundings, was this the reason for choosing this site to add another demention of power to those who poor who entered it's gates. So close to the town, emotional blackmail perhaps for the residents. Let's hope that nothing like this ever happens again 25000 women killed here, 2000 men most of... More
