Description

On the site of the concentration camp Wöbbelin - now a wood without any buildings - are the contours of the baracks indicated and are five brick sculptures, indicating the different stages of camp life. The five sculptures were made in 2004 from demolition bricks on the occasion of an international workcamp by young Europeans supervised by Dörte Michaelis.

The construction of these brick sculptures was regrettably not very solid, two of them are fallen and broken into the individual bricks.
