Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash: While female prisoners were common in the concentration camp system, Ravensbruck was Germany’s only concentration camp for women. Children were interned as well. It opened in 1939, and all occupied nations of Europe were represented there. Many were slave laborers for the Siemens factory, building parts for the V-2 rocket.
