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.

The exhibition marks the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz on January 27, 1945 and International Holocaust Memorial Day, and is on display from January 31, 2008 to March 30, 2008 in the German Resistance Memorial Center.
