    Texled - Gesellschaft für Textil-und Lederverwertung mbH Werk Ravensbrück

    (Texled - Textile and Leather Recovery plc, Ravensbrück Branch)

    In 1940, the first buildings were constructed where the manufacturing of prisoner uniforms - and later, SS uniforms, took place at f.KL-Ravensbrück (Frauen-Konzentrationslager Ravensbrück = Women's Concentration Camp Ravensbrück) near Fürstenberg, a health resort north of Berlin. The SS owned enterprise formed the largest part of the Industrial Estate at Ravensbrück, with several more buildings being completed by 1945. Tailor workshops, a weaving workshop, furriers' workshop, shredding workshop and an administrative building completed the complex. The tailors' workshop, also known as the Mechanical Workshops, was located in the northeastern corner of the camp and comprised eight interconnected manufacturing halls. Once completed in 1942, it became one of the largest sites of mass slave labour within the Ravensbrück KZ system. Through 1999 and 2000, the structure underwent considerable renovation and now houses an exhibition on slave labour at Ravensbrück.

    Today, 30th April 2015, marks the 70th anniversary of the liberation of f.KL-Ravensbrück. Considered the only major concentration camp established specifically to hold women, the camp also held some 20,000 male inmates during its existence. Tens of thousands fell victim to the conditions and treatment within the Ravensbrück camp system.
