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...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...More

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.

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...More
