When the city of Hamburg released the entire compound of the former Neuengamme concentration camp to the Memorial in 2001–2002, the grounds were redeveloped and exhibitions redesigned. As of 2005, the Memorial encompasses the entire historic site of the camp, with information panels spread out over the grounds and five permanent exhibitions in several languages.
