We got a one hour fifteen minute regional train RE 5 from Berlin train station to Furstenberg /Havel .The fair cost us €31 return.When we got off at Furstenberg.a small train Station we could not see anybody inside or outside this station and It looked unmanned. there were no information Bus or Taxi here so we decided to walk into the town center which took us about fifteen minutes where we found the tourists Info center.We spoke to a very helpful lady and she ordered us a Taxi.It arrived fifteen minutes later and took us to the camp at a cost of €6 .We were glad we decided that we did not walk as the taxi took ten minutes to get there.
We went into the info center and got a map of the former camp.We walked all around the former camp before we went in to the main exhibition which is located in the former Headquarters building of the SS guards This exhibition is very well done,and very moving .There are many exhibits on display which have been donated to the Ravensbrueck Memorial by survivors.The exhibition is based on on the collection of objects, artifacts ,accounts ,drawings,and a sad letter written by a former prisoners which was very sad.In the cell blocks which was used by the SS to hold former prisoners there is a cell for every nation that was imprisoned here with a great exhibit that represented that nation.After spending about five hours in this memorial we went back to the information area where i bought a book called The Ravensbruck Woman Concentration Camp History and memory which gives an excellent history of this very sad place.The lady at the bookshop ordered us a taxi back to the train station.You would need to spend a full day to explore this camp in full.
