Bike Touring Highlight
The former concentration camp Neuengamme and the memorial sites can roughly be divided into three parts from north to south. Above the memorial park, in the middle the former brickworks, below the former SS Hauptwache and the actual camp. This is a frightening reminder of our history and it actually takes hours to fully grasp it.The memorial has gradually emerged in its present extension and form. There were two JVA's on the grounds that were closed or relocated in 2003 and 2006. In 2003, the reorganization began in the former camp and was inaugurated in 2005 as a new memorial and study site. In the present form and extent it exists since 2007, after which the JVA was moved in the former clay pits in 2006 after Billwerder.Left:

Good to remember: The Nazis were also in Hamburg ....The garden with the memorial stones is .... idyllic and beautifully located and well maintained. In summer weather and sunshine in the year 81 to GröFaZ it is almost hard to imagine what people suffered here and the other people have tormented. The sculpture then picks you up again.
