The House of Remembrance

The names of the prisoners known to have died in Neuengamme concentration camp are listed on four-metre-long strips of fabric hanging on the red walls of the gallery in the square central room. Unfortunately, it has not been possible to include the names of all the prisoners who died here, as the relevant records (camp death registers, register office records, cremation and burial lists) are incomplete. The names are listed by date of death. The names of 22,457 prisoners who died in Neuengamme concentration camp have been established thus far. This is only slightly more than half of the at least 42,900 people who died as prisoners in Neuengamme concentration camp. More detailed information on the victims can be found in printed directories and at a computer terminal. In a narrow side room overlooking the Field of Ashes and the monument, there are seven wooden display cases containing handwritten records of prisoner deaths. These notebooks are among the most important historical artefacts from Neuengamme concentration camp.
