Haus der Brandenburgisch-Preußischen Geschichte

The Brandenburg Society for Culture and History operates the historic building of the former prussian carriage horse stable as a museum (House of the history of Brandenburg and Prussia) in the historic center of Potsdam. As an exhibition house, event forum and place to learn about Brandenburg-Prussian history, the HBPG is a forum for an active, critical and open discourse of history and the present.

The Brandenburgische Gesellschaft für Kultur und Geschichte (non-profit LLC) unites the  Haus der Brandenburgisch-Preußischen Geschichte (LLC) and Kulturland Brandenburg e.V. This umbrella enables to align their project scopes even better in terms of shared overriding objectives and common strategic goals. 

Memorial Sachsenhausen

Sachsenhausen concentration camp was built in the summer of 1936 as a model and training camp. Tens of thousands of the more than 200.000 prisoners interned here dies as a result of hunger, disease, forced labour and mistreatment or were victims of systematic extermination operations. In August 1945, after the end of the war, the Soviet secret police moved its Special Camp No. 7 to the centre of the former Sachsenhausen concentration camp.  

The Memorial Gedenkstätte Sachsenhausen  was opened in 1963. It is a place of mourning and commemoration while at the same time fulfilling its mission as a modern museum of contemporary history. The Memorial belongs to Stiftung Brandenburgische Gedenkstätten

Memorial Ravensbrück

In 1939, the SS has built in Ravensbrueck the largest women’s concentration camp in the German Reich. In 1941, a men’s camp was added, and in 1942, Uckermark “juvenile protective custody camp” was taken into operation.

After the liberation, the Soviet Army took over much of the former concentration camp and used it as a barracks. The “Ravensbrück National Memorial” was opened in 1959 and was one of the GDR’s three national memorials.

Since 1993, the Nationale Mahn- und Gedenkstätte Ravensbrück is part of the Stiftung Brandenburgische Gedenkstätten.
