Learning centre and international meeting place
As an authentic learning centre and international meeting place the Laura memorial inseminates knowledge about a dark chapter of German history.
The intensive meetings with former inmates of different backgrounds have left a lasting impression. They serve as a reminder of the terrible events of the past. With his last wish to find his final resting place on the premises of the camp, former inmate Herman van Hasselt set a symbolic example of prevailing over inhumanity and barbarism.
Regular workshops with groups of pupils not only foster awareness for history but also hand down the legacy of the survivors to the following generations.
