Association of Memorial Museums in Germany Working Group Concentration Camp Memorial Museums

The Association of Memorial Museums in Germany e.V. / FORUM (VGDF), recently founded in December 2020, represents the interests of about 260 memorial museums and documentation sites as well as remembrance initiatives. They are united in state associations, which, thus far, exist in nine federal states. The initiatives and institutions united here have very different organisational forms, ranging from private foundations and district museums to the registered associations. The Memorial Museums Department has worked closely with the association since its founding. The head of the department is a co-opted member of the board.
