An International Auschwitz Committee exhibition in cooperation with the German Resistance Memorial Center and the International Youth Meeting Center in Oświęcim/Auschwitz
"Auschwitz is a place where you can learn to see." Patricia Harms, 20 years old, trainee
To launch the worldwide commemoration of the 73st anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz and to mark the 13th International Holocaust Remembrance Day, the International Auschwitz Committee in cooperation with the German Resistance Memorial Center and the International Youth Meeting Center in Oświęcim/Auschwitz presents the exhibition:
Auschwitz—A Clear Trace
In 2017, more than two million people visited the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial Center. For the survivors of the camp, a key concern is that the memorial center in Auschwitz is preserved in the future as a UNESCO world heritage site, so it can continue to relate their experiences and memories—especially in a world in which Holocaust denial and anti-Semitism are becoming more and more prevalent, on the Internet and elsewhere. Survivors of the camp and young visitors to the memorial center—trainees at Volkswagen AG and Polish vocational students from Bielsko-Biała–report on their experiences preserving the site and encountering other visitors. And they speak about their hopes, questions, and expectations for today and tomorrow.
The exhibition opening by the Vice President of the German Bundestag Thomas Oppermann (SPD) takes place at the German Resistance Memorial Center, at Stauffenbergstraße 13-14, 10785 Berlin, 2nd floor, Room B, at 6 pm on January 23, 2018.
