Ravensbrück Research Workshop

The workshop originated from the Ravensbrück International Women’s Research Group – FU Berlin, founded in the autumn of 1995. The first workshop was held in December 1997 at the House of the Wannsee Conference in Berlin.
Initially, the meeting was primarily conceptualized as an opportunity for mutual support between postgraduate students writing doctoral theses or exhange on researching topics related to the Ravensbrück women’s concentration camp. Since March 2011, the workshops have been held with support of the Ravensbrück Memorial.

Over the years, they have developed into a forum of discussion between Memorial employees, scholars, and representatives of survivors’ associations who are working in various areas associated with the history of the Ravensbrück concentration camp.

After a two years pause related to the Corona pandemic, the next workshop is planned for November 2023
