On the International Day of Commemoration in Memory of the Victims of the Holocaust, we will visit the Neuengamme Concentration Camp Memorial. Spanning 57 hectares, it covers almost the entire historical camp area. Seventeen original buildings from the concentration camp have been preserved, making it one of the largest memorials in Germany. Every year, about 100,000 people come to see it.

During a guided tour, you will get detailed insights into the historical site. Memorial staff will explain its history, point out vestiges, answer questions, and impart historical knowledge.

The excursion focuses on preserving the memory of the victims, while reflecting on the responsibilities and meaning of Germany’s culture of remembrance. You will have the opportunity to expand your knowledge about Germany’s Nazi past.

We will travel there together by train (S-Bahn) and bus from a central meeting point in Hamburg.

Cost: A small fee is required to take part in this event. We will announce the fee amount here before registration starts. Bring the correct amount with you in cash to pay at the beginning of the event.

Language: A guided tour in English with a:m professional guide is booked as part of this event.
