  • The Neuengamme camp, the center of the Gedenkstätte, is an example of what can be done with willpower and perseverance to preserve memory, convey history and create an emotional burden that remains and marks our spirits imperative to visit the whole camp and if possible with children.

  • Were in the main exhibition in one of the former buildings for the inmate accommodation. Here, the history of the camp is impressively depicted. The crimes committed on the ground, the different origin of the inmates, the day-to-day prisoners, the survival strategies of the inmates and also the post-war use of the site are certainly the focal points here. This involves chronological action and images, text boards, films, text booklets and touchscreens alternate. There are also guided tours, which, like the entire entrance here, are completely free, but a guided tour does not suit us so well in time and we also get such an impression. For well over an hour the main exhibition captivated us, we read a lot and still somehow just rushed through. You can easily spend a whole day here! The special exhibition, which we visited afterwards, is also worth mentioning: The former Walther works are about concentration camp forced labour in the armaments reduction.
