Dream, Destruction, Living On. Paths after Auschwitz
An exhibition by the International Auschwitz Committee in cooperation with the German Resistance Memorial Center
“After our liberation from Mauthausen concentration camp there were two feelings: on the one hand we knew we were free. Hitler was dead, the Reich was no more. Yet we also knew that although Hitler had lost the war, he had annihilated the Jews. We, the survivors, were alone. I went back to Łódź, where I was born. I wanted to see who was still alive. We decided we had to live.” The Auschwitz survivor and President of the International Auschwitz Committee, Noach Flug, on the situation of the survivors after their liberation in 1945.
The exhibition shows memories, experiences and lives of the Auschwitz survivors active on the board of the International Auschwitz Committee: it takes us to Jerusalem, New York, Warsaw, Brussels, Prague, and Paris, illustrating how these individuals are connected to one another – through the memory of the unspeakable.
