The women’s section


The exhibition opened in the fall of 2013. It told the story of the female prisoners in SS Strafgefangenenlager Falstad. The women’s section of the camp was in operation from the summer of 1942 until the liberation in 1945. The exhibition seeks to give an answer to who the prisoners were, how they experienced the camp and why the history of the female prisoners has received so little attention in the decades following WWII.
