Holocaust Museum Houston

“Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp”

Tuesday, Apr. 4, 2017 – Sunday, Jul. 30, 2017

Dr. Astrid Ley, research associate and Deputy Head of Sachsenhausen Memorial and Museum, in Oranienburg, Germany, recently spent four weeks working with HMH’s Curatorial Department during a travel extension of her research fellowship at the Harry Ransom Center in Austin. Dr. Ley’s principal research is medicine under National Socialism and medical care in concentration camps, recently focusing on “inmate doctors” in the camps.

While in Houston, Dr. Ley curated an 8-panel exhibition titled, “Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp” on display in the Museum’s Boniuk Library now through July 30, 2017.

Sachsenhausen was one of the biggest concentration camps within German borders. More than 200,000 men and women from the whole of Europe were imprisoned there and tens of thousands of them did not survive. Don’t miss this unique and compelling exhibition in the library providing an overview of the camp's history between 1936 and 1945.

The Boniuk Library hours are Monday through Friday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; noon to 5 p.m. Saturday; closed on Sunday.
