Created by Dr. Jennifer Dickey’s public history students and in cooperation with the Ravensbrück Memorial Site, "Remembering Ravensbrück" is a journey back to WWII Germany and the largest Nazi concentration camp for women, 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—of women who suffered in and survived the camp but also of female guards who willingly implemented the Nazi final solution.  The richly visual panels feature historic photographs, maps, and artwork created by prisoners, a testament to the women’s spirit of survival and resistance.
