The Canal de Isabel II Foundation will be the first stop for an exhibition on the Auschwitz concentration camp. Opening in early December, the exhibition includes personal belongings from people who were kept prisoners (and most probably exterminated) there.
The exhibit, produced by Musealia, best known for their staging of the Titanic or Human Bodies exhibitions will be shown in museums around the world for seven years.
Focusing on the most infamous concentration and extermination camp, the exhibition is a perfect opportunity to reflect on the atrocities committed in World War II. The objects shown were borrowed from the Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum, a memorial and museum located 43km from Krakow.
Among the objects belonging to prisoners that visitors will be able to see are eyeglasses, striped pyjamas and unidentified suitcases. They will be studied by historians especially for this event.
Welcoming 1.5 million visitors every year, Auschwitz is the most visited concentration camp. It was added to the World Heritage List as a symbol of the Holocaust. In fact, it was a network of German Nazi concentration camps in occupied Poland whose construction was commissioned by Heinrich Himmler, head of the SS.
