TEMPORARILY CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC
Due to COVID-19 the Archives and Special Collections is closed to the public. All public events have been cancelled, including physical access to the exhibition To Life: The Liberation of Ravensbrück. To Life has gone digital. Explore the exhibit here.
In celebration of the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Nazi-era concentration camps, Florida Gulf Coast University’s Wilson G. Bradshaw Library has partnered with FGCU’s Center for Judaic, Holocaust, and Genocide Studies, Sarasota-based non-profit Better Futures, and Sweden’s Lund University and Malmö Museum. The Library’s Spring 2020 exhibition To Life: The Liberation of Ravensbrück brings to Southwest Florida, for the first time, the story of the White Buses, a rescue operation undertaken by the Swedish Red Cross which brought thousands of women and children from Germany’s Ravensbrück concentration camp to freedom at Malmö Harbor.
