Heartbreaking but Important History
Sep 2016
Although this exhibition only takes up one half of a small building, the Memorial Museum set by the main road in the village of Woebellin offers some powerful images and reports documenting what took place in the nearby Woebbelin Camp - a holding camp hastily extended to be a subcamp of Neuengamme in the last months of WWII. Though not a "death camp," it was a death sentence for many prisoners who perished in terrible conditions right before liberation - people of different faiths and nationalities shipped there en masse from other - many notorious - Nazi camps. Hard to comprehend that over 70 years after the end of WWII, the painstaking work on gathering information about victims is ongoing. One of the goals is to find who was buried where. Documents continue to be discovered and linked with older reports about mass burials in the countryside around the camp (the camp itself is long gone). It has taken a long time to work through . Much of the information that the museum receives is sent on by family members of those who remained mostly silent about their experience as prisoners and have now passed on. There are a few memorials dotted about the nearby countryside honoring victims. Next spring there will be an important unveiling of another one. Two small rooms have displays and audio descriptions - a couple in English. Much is in German - all is well done. The director of the museum and memorial kindly gave us a moving and detailed explanation in English of the events that took place at the camp and in the community and of the work that continues to ensure that the victims are not forgotten. She also made available a lot of documents for us to look through. Local educational programs and projects with partner schools farther afield, including overseas, are an important part of the role of this memorial and museum. The slow (decades long, so far) process of matching names to burial sites and honoring those who died nearby is a work in progress. A poignant stop about half an hour south of Schwerin. Take the time to see it and the dramatically rendered memorials in the immediate area if you can.

Wöbbelin is a quiet country village. It's difficult to imagine that this was the location of a concentration camp where more than a thousand innocent people perished.
The memorial is simple and sombre while at the same time showing the unbelievable depths that humankind can sink to in the treatment of our neighbours.

The Mahn und Gedenkstatten Wobbelin is a military museum that recognized the accomplishments of the 82nd Airborne and the liberation of the Nazi Concentration camp in Wobbelin during WWII. The museum is located a few miles down from Ludwigslust (site of a memorial burial ground for the prisoners of the camp). The museum gives an incredible overview of the camp, the liberation of the prisoners and honors those who lost their lives while in the camp. A must visit for WWII history buffs.
