“Dig Where You are Standing” Malchow: A sub-camp of Ravensbrück

author Ulrike Jäger 

Students began by surveying classmates about their knowledge of the Malchow concentration camp, a sub-camp of Ravensbrück. In order to keep the camp’s memory alive in the town, the students conducted an archaeological dig and compiled information resulting from their studies. In 1997, the project won second prize in the first statewide contest about memorial work in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania.
