Stiftung Brandenburgische Gedenkstätten Mahn- und Gedenkstätte Ravensbrück

Workshops and meetings

The Ravensbrück Memorial organises workshops, seminars and meetings on its own and in cooperation with others.

Three series of events have proven to be especially successful:

  • In 2017 the 29th Ravensbrück Research Workshop took place. This workshop was started independently by Ravensbrück researchers and is now an innovative opportunity for external scholars researching topics related to Ravensbrück to meet with Memorial employees.
  • The Ravensbrück Colloquium, first held in 2002, has offered opportunities to explore topics such as the representation of perpetrators, ‘Memorial souvenirs’, tours as an educational format at memorials (‘Good conduct’), gender questions, and Adorno’s thoughts about ‘education after Auschwitz’ (‘Adorno revisited’).
  • Since 2005, the Memorial has held the Ravensbrück European Summer School, which focuses on different topics and is organised with different partners each year. Over the past years, the Centre for Antisemitism Research at TU Berlin and the Chair of 20th-century German History with a Focus on National Socialism at Humboldt University of Berlin have acted as co-organisers.

The workshops, seminars, and meetings initiated and organised by the Memorial can be found in the events section of this website.

The Ravensbrück Memorial is also always interested in new partnerships.
