Join us for the opening of the MHHE's newest traveling exhibit, Remembering Ravensbrück: Women and the Holocaust at 2 p.m. at the Museum of History & Holocaust Education.
Created by the Kennesaw State University Public History and German Studies Programs and the Ravensbruck Memorial Site, Remembering Ravensbrück tells the story of the Nazi concentration camp where more than 150,000 women were interred. 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.
The opening will feature remarks by Dr. Catherine Lewis, Director of the Museum of History & Holocaust Education, Maria Britt, Associate Vice-President of Operations at KSU, Dr. Jennifer Dickey, coordinator of Public History at KSU and Nancy York, a student co-curator of the exhibit. Following the remarks there will be an opportunity to tour the exhibit.
