Like many other German companies, Siemens & Halske used forced labourers during World War II.

In remembrance of this, the Werner-von-Siemens-Werkberufsschule of the Siemens Professional Education (SPE) programme in Berlin initiated the Siemens@Ravensbrück project in cooperation with the Ravensbrück Memorial along with the Berlin-based works councils and executive office of Siemens AG.

This project, which has been running since 2010, has given pupils and students from the Siemens Professional Education programme in Berlin multiple opportunities to meet survivors of the Ravensbrück concentration camp, some of whom carried out forced labour for Siemens & Halske.

This cooperative project is continually documented by pupils and students on the project website at www.projekt-ravensbrueck.de.
