Remembering Ravensbrück

Remembering Ravensbrück: Women and the Holocaust

on display through June 15

During World War II, Ravensbrück was the largest concentration camp for women under the Nazi regime. By the time of liberation by Soviet troops in 1945, more than 120,000 women had been interned in the camp 50 miles north of Berlin, Germany. Between 1939 and 1945 women from more than 30 countries were forced in to the camp, where they were stripped of their dignity and identity. About 20 percent of the prisoners in Ravensbrück were murdered or died because of the camp’s harsh conditions. Women were also the perpetrators of these crimes, playing significant roles in operating the camp as civilian guards. Today Ravensbrück is a memorial site that honors those who were imprisoned in the camp.

Remembering Ravensbrück was created by the Kennesaw State University Public History and German Studies Programs and the Ravensbrück Memorial Site.

The Impact of Tulsa's Urban Design on Your Health: How the Environment Shapes Our Health

Thursday, April 12 | 6:00pm to 7:30pm | Central Library Pocahontas Greadington Learning & Creativity Center

Have you ever wondered how your environment affects your health?
Research by the Robert Woods Johnson Foundation found that while health care accounted for 10 percent of our health outcomes, the environment attributed 19 percent. Join Shawn Michael Schaefer, director of the University of Oklahoma Urban Design Studio and faculty member of the College of Architecture, and learn how Tulsa's urban form is shaping our health outcomes. Schaefer will analyze Tulsa’s built environment using geospatial mapping to understand the density, diversity and design of the city. The presentation concludes by reviewing how Tulsa’s urban form is shaping our health outcomes by examining its relationship to current public health research. Founded in 1988, the Urban Design Studio is an outreach program from the College of Architecture with a three-part mission: to train urban design professionals in architecture, community planning and urban studies; to further the understanding of the city through research and creative activity; and to conduct community service projects benefiting Tulsa and Northeast Oklahoma. Professor Schaefer holds professional degrees in architecture and urban design. He is licensed to practice architecture and interior design in the state of Oklahoma and is board certified by the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards and the American Institute of City Planners. He is also a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) accredited professional and a FAA certified, instrument-rated pilot. Schaefer is founding principal of Places LLC, Oklahoma’s first urban design consulting practice.
