Created by the Kennesaw State University Public History and German Studies Programs and the Ravensbrück Memorial Site, Remembering Ravensbrück tells the story of the Nazi concentration camp where more than 150,000 women were interned.

The panel-based exhibition focuses on the history of the camp, from its beginning in 1939 to its liberation in 1945, and highlights the stories of individual women – women who suffered in and survived the camp but also of female guards who willingly implemented the Nazi Final Solution.

The visually rich panels feature historic photographs, maps, and artwork created by the prisoners, a testament to the women’s spirit of survival.

This exhibit will be at the Cumming branch of the library from March 27 through April 28, 2019.
