Past Projects

SCI Germany-"Hear with your eyes, see with your ears" - memories of female concentration camp survivors 

hear with your eyes, see with your ears post


Project Dates: 1st-5th of August

In this work- and study opportunity, you will to meet other volunteers online and will work together on video interviews of women from different countries who survived the Ravensbrück women's concentration camp and were willing to share their memories. Ravensbrück existed from 1939-1945, more than 120,000 women from at least 40 countries were imprisoned there. Tens of thousands of people did not survive. Today there are only a few sources from the camp period, so interviews with survivors are of great importance for the memorial. Your support and commitment to prepare for and carry out these interviews is strongly needed. The Online-Camp will be organized by our long-standing project partner, the Ravensbrück Memorial, north of Berlin. Learn more here
