Book presentation.

En – Traces … The death march of the inmates of Sachsenhausen concentration camp. French and German bilingual edition.
In the spring of 1945, when the Red Army approached Berlin, Himmler ordered to “evacuate” around 30,000 prisoners from the Sachsenhausen concentration camp. The first death march leaves the camp on the night of April 20-21, 1945. Without water and food, weakened by captivity, thousands of prisoners die in the woods and on the streets of Brandenburg and Mecklenburg, the weakest are shot by the SS . About a third of all victims of the concentration camps died in the months before the liberation.
In 2015, on the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the liberation, Valérie and Michel Claverie decided to follow the prisoner’s number 66213 path from Sachsenhausen to Crivitz, where he once found freedom again. From this memorial march a diary of a journey was created, which illustrates the testimonies of the last survivors with photographs and drawings. (Translation presented by Michel van der Burg , based on the german text).

FR – Traces … La marche de la mort des déportés du camp de concentration de Sachsenhausen. Edition bilingue français-allemand.
Au printemps 1945, alors que l’Armée rouge progresse vers Berlin, Himmler ordonne de chasser sur les routes près de 30 000 déportés du camp de concentration de Sachsenhausen. L’évacuation démarre dans la nuit du 20 au 21 avril 1945. Sans eau ni soin, déjà affaiblis par leur détention, des milliers de prisonniers meurent dans les rues et dans les forêts du Brandebourg et du Mecklembourg, les plus faibles sont abattus par la SS. Environ un tiers des victimes sont décédées au cours des derniers mois d’existence des camps.
En 2015, à l’occasion du 70ème anniversaire de la libération, Valérie et Michel Claverie ont choisi de marcher dans les pas du matricule 66213, de Sachsenhausen à Crivitz où il retrouva la liberté. De cette initiative mémorielle est né le livre « Traces », un carnet de voyage réunissant autour des témoignages des derniers survivants, les photographies et les dessins rapportés.

DE – Spuren … Der Todesmarsch der Häftlinge des KZ Sachsenhausen. Zweisprachige französisch-deutsche Ausgabe.
Im Frühjahr 1945, als sich die Rote Armee Berlin nähert, befiehlt Himmler, etwa 30 000 Häftlinge des KZ Sachsenhausen zu „evakuieren“. Der erste Todesmarsch verlässt das Lager in der Nacht vom 20. auf den 21. April 1945. Ohne Wasser und Verpflegung, entkräftet durch die Gefangenschaft, sterben Tausende Häftlinge in den Wäldern und auf den Straßen Brandenburgs und Mecklenburgs, die Schwächsten werden von der SS erschossen. Ungefähr ein Drittel aller Opfer der Konzentrationslager kam in den letzten Monaten vor der Befreiung um.
2015, anlässlich des 70. Jahrestages der Befreiung, beschlossen Valérie und Michel Claverie, den damaligen Weg des Häftlings mit der Nummer 66213 nachzugehen, von Sachsenhausen bis Crivitz, wo er einst die Freiheit wiederfand. Aus diesem Gedenkmarsch entstand das Tagebuch einer Reise, das Zeugnisse der letzten Überlebenden mit Fotografien und Zeichnungen illustriert.
