Notes: On 21 April 2013, the new permanent exhibition on the history of the Ravensbrück concentration camp was opened at the Ravensbrück Memorial in the presence of survivors, representatives of survivor associations and groups of supporters, public figures, and many other interested individuals.

A digital model of the camp depicts the development of the camp complex. The exhibition includes media points with accounts from 54 survivors as well as 152 biographies of former prisoners. In addition to the 13 main introductory texts, there are 35 thematic texts, 160 texts on individual topics, 80 folders, 17 video points, and 22 audio points to provide a more in-depth look at the history of the site.

Notes: Through our exhibitions, events and workshops we endeavour to commemorate the victims and survivors of the Nazi regime and the numerous genocides that happened before and since the Holocaust. We do this to highlight the consequences of prejudice and racism in all of its forms, and to draw attention to the dangers of indifference, apathy and silence. We believe that learning about the past supports the building of a human rights culture and reinforces empathy and compassion. Learning about the past, and the moral and ethical issues it raises, is instructive in dealing with contemporary human rights abuses, for example, homophobia, xenophobia, racism and bigotry. We hope that visiting the Cape Town Holocaust and Genocide Centre will afford visitors a deeper understanding of what it means to be human.
