The Murder of the Children of the Bullenhuser Damm

How a challenging history of the Shoah can be told to young people


The Murder of the Children of the Bullenhuser Damm: How a challenging history of the Shoah can be told to young people

Dr Iris Groschek (Neuengamme Concentration Camp Memorial)

Special talk in partnership with the Centre for Holocaust Education at the Institute of Education

One of the satellite camps of Neuengamme was situated until mid of April 1945 in a former school building in a street called Bullenhuser Damm. The building was empty, situated in a destroyed area of Hamburg, when SS men committed a murder in the building's basement. During the night of 20 April 1945 20 Jewish children and at least 28 adults were hanged.

The Bullenhuser Damm Memorial is dedicated to the memory of these children, who were subjected to medical experiments in the Neuengamme concentration camp before being murdered, to the four prisoners who cared for them, and to 24 unidentified Soviet prisoners. This talk by Iris Groschek, who helped to put together the recently re-opened memorial at Bullenhuser Damm, will explain the approach to history taken in the memorial and discuss the challenges of engaging school-age audiences with violent and disturbing historical events.
