Two Lives. Auschwitz and after.

An exhibition of the International Auschwitz Committee in cooperation with the German Resistance Memorial Center and the International Youth Meeting Center in Oświęcim/Auschwitz to mark the 74th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz on January 27, 1945, and International Holocaust Remembrance Day.

How can we live after Auschwitz? How can we live with the memories of those murdered, their voices and their words? How can we live with the memories of their murderers? In the exhibition, Eva Fahidi, a Jewish Hungarian Auschwitz survivor, and Zofia Posmysz, a Polish survivor of Auschwitz, report on their lives after the camp, especially their artistic and creative confrontations with their own life stories. Eva Fahidi and Zofia Posmysz "have succeeded in the greatest achievement of which the human spirit is capable: transforming horror, violence, and suffering into an inexhaustible source of positive energy." (Frank Harders-Wuthenow). Trainees at Volkswagen AG share their encounters with survivors and their work at the Auschwitz Memorial.

The exhibition opening takes place at 7 p.m. on January 23, 2019, in the German Resistance Memorial Center, Stauffenbergstraße 13-14, 10785 Berlin, 2nd floor, Hall A:
