One- and multi-day seminars

Multi-day seminars

The Memorial’s Educational Services department will be happy to help you develop a multi-day seminar tailored to your target group which involves more than just a tour or the traditional project work aimed at school classes.

In addition to exploring the history of the Ravensbrück camp complex, other topics can be examined in more depth, including:

  • written accounts from survivors of the Ravensbrück women’s concentration camp
  • female and male perpetrators in Ravensbrück
  • the role of the Ravensbrück women’s concentration camp in the system of concentration and extermination camps
  • Ravensbrück in the memory culture of different countries
  • blind spots in memory culture – marginalisation and attributions
  • Ravensbrück on film


Multimedia presentations can be created in these seminars, for example. Digital cameras and ten iPads are available for use by seminar participants. Working on multimedia products designed for presentation (product orientation) usually takes more time (for developing an idea, designing a storyboard, filming, video editing). One group records the work of the other groups on video. This makes it possible to document both historical topics (thematic focus) and the exploration of these topics (activity and process orientation). The video group relies on input from the thematic groups. These media-based educational programmes require more detailed individual coordination in advance between the Educational Services team and the instructors.

Please note: The fees for guided educational programmes at the Memorial are generally based on the group size and – in the case of multi-day projects – on the agreed amount of support provided. The basis for this is the schedule of fees of the Brandenburg Memorials Foundation [add link!!!]

Guided group activities are not available on Mondays, as the exhibitions and Visitor Centre are closed on this day.
