Anyone up for another #MuseUp? You’re in luck! On Thursday 28th August, the Nazi Forced Labour Documentation Centre is inviting us to Berlin Schöneweide , where the last well-preserved former Nazi forced labour camp is located. In the Second World War it served as one of the more than 3000 collective accommodations dispersed throughout the city for forced labourers.
The Documentation Centre opened in summer 2006 on a part of historical grounds that once belonged to the camp and which are today protected as a monument. In August 2010, one of the well preserved barracks was also made accessible, and in May 2013 the permanent exhibition “Forced Labour in the Daily Round 1938 – 1945” opened its doors. During the #MuseUp, we will be visiting both the permanent exhibition and “Barrack 13”.
We hope we have managed to arouse your interest, and that some of you will join us on 28th August. It’s well worth the trip out to Schöneweide. Attendance is free! Here is an overview of all the details:
