Faces of Europe

Daughters remember their Mothers, Prisoners of the Ravensbrück Concentration Camp.

The exhibition shows large-format portraits of 27 women from 13 countries. All were imprisoned in Ravensbrück. Almost all the photos are taken in the late 1940s and early 1950s and show the women in the context of a new, normal life after being imprisoned in the concentration camp. The portraits are commented by the daughters, a son, grandchildren, and friends of the women depicted.

The texts can be read in the brochures of the exhibition in Czech, German, English, French, Italian, Polish and Russian and can be taken away by the visitors.

The exhibition was created by the International Ravensbrück Committee and the Ravensbrück Memorial.

The opening took place on April 18th, 2021 on occasion of the 76th anniversary of the liberation and can be watched on Youtube:

The exhibition can be viewed in an online version at via browser.
