"Shifts of Time": Report from the Colloquium on the Revision of the International Memorial at the Neuengamme Concentration Camp Memorial.

The "International Memorial" at the Neuengamme Concentration Camp Memorial is a protected monument that was erected in 1965 by the city of Hamburg through an initiative of the Amicale Internationale de Neuengamme (AIN). Part of the historic site are 22 memorial stones naming the countries of origin of the Neuengamme Concentration Camp prisoners.

Report on the commoration of the 77th anniversary of liberation

This year, together with the Amicale Internationale KZ Neuengamme, the Foundation was again able to invite people to events to mark the anniversary of the liberation on site at the Neuengamme concentration camp memorial. In recent years, to our great regret, we had been unable to hold any commemorative events (2020) or welcome guests to Hamburg (2021) due to the Corona pandemic. To mark the occasion of the anniversary of the end of the war and the liberation of the concentration camps, a whole series of events took place at the Neuengamme Concentration Camp Memorial in addition to the central commemoration ceremony on 3 May 2022.
