"What voice do we have?" - Invitation to an international exchange for descendants of former concentration camp prisoners

15. May 2024

As part of the project "What voice do we have?", the Sachsenhausen Memorial and Museum invites descendants of former Sachsenhausen concentration camp prisoners to a networking meeting.

One focus will be on the question of how the voices and perspectives of subsequent generations can be made visible in memorial and educational work and what opportunities there are for descendants to become active and get involved. There will also be the opportunity to get to know the site, to engage with their own family histories and to discuss them with other descendants.

We cordially invite any descendants of former prisoners of Sachsenhausen concentration camp and its satellite camps to take part in the exchange. It is not a prerequisite for participation that they have already dealt in depth with their own family history.

The meeting will take place from 13 to 16 September 2024 at the Sachsenhausen Memorial and Museum. Accommodation in double rooms and meals will be provided at the Sachsenhausen International Youth Meeting Centre "Haus Szczypiorski" in Oranienburg. A fee of €30 per person is charged for participation. Travel expenses can be partially reimbursed.

The language of the meeting will be English. Translation will be possible to a limited extent. We look forward to receiving registrations for the networking meeting by 1 July 2024 at Places are limited. Further coordination, information, and the program will follow registration.
