Ravensbrück, located sixty miles north of Berlin,

was specifically designed as a labor camp for women

and children prisoners. During World War II, over 130,000

prisoners passed through Ravensbrück and its satellite

camps. In a brave action prior to the end of the war,

the Swedish government dispatched a fleet of Red

Cross buses, all painted white, to rescue more than

21,000 Holocaust survivors and bring them to freedom

in southern Sweden, which was neutral throughout the war.


The Ravensbrück Archive in Lund, Sweden contains thousands of pages handwritten in Polish plus notebooks,

diaries, poems, recipes, photos, drawings and official Nazi documents, as well as transcripts of the 1946‐47

trial in Hamburg of the Ravensbrück commanders and guards.
