The Center for Holocaust and Genocide Research's
"Ravensbrück: We Who Lived There" Traveling Exhibition
As a follow-up to the University Archives and Special Collections’ 2020 exhibition, “To Life: The Liberation of Ravensbrück” we invite the community to experience the traveling exhibit "Ravensbrück – We Who Lived There." The exhibition is viewable on the first floor of the Bradshaw Library between now and May 2022.
Ravensbrück was a concentration camp for women located about 90 km north of Berlin.
It opened in 1939 imprisoning 130,000 women and children from more than 30 different
countries. In April of 1945, more than 21,000 survivors were rescued during the Red
Cross’ White Bus Rescue Action and brought to Sweden.
The exhibit is the result of a joint student and teacher project at Katedralskolan in Lund, Sweden 2018–2019. Students from the Advanced History Program and the IB Program share the stories of the women and children imprisoned at Ravensbrück. The exhibit is brought to you by FGCU’s Center for Holocaust and Genocide Research and the University Archives and Special Collections. It was brought to the US by Better Futures Foundation, a Sarasota-based 501(c)3 non-profit.
