The Second and Third Generation
The children of former concentration camp prisoners were shaped in different ways by the experiences of their parents. Various factors play a role in how families deal with this: the reason for imprisonment, the experience of violence and death during imprisonment, and how the mother or father deals with their own history. Children's emotions range from glorification to hatred. What they all have in common, however, is that they attach significant importance to their own lives to their mother's or father's experience of imprisonment.
The complete permanent exhibition "Time Traces" and the other side exhibitions on the grounds of the Neuengamme Concentration Camp Memorial are also available digitally in the memorial's media library. Unfortunately, the media library is only available in German.media library
