United Kingdom and South Africa, new destinations for “Seeing Auschwitz”


The exhibition is open to the public in London and Johannesburg, in two different formats.

Last October, Seeing Auschwitz opened its doors in South Kensington, London, after more than 15,000 pre-sale tickets sold, a milestone for the exhibition which, during its first weeks in the British capital, has received almost 20.000 visitors.

Also, the exhibition has become the first Musealia production to visit the African continent. Seeing Auschwitz was inaugurated in parallel in the South African capital of Johannesburg, where it has been open since November 13th at the Johannesburg Holocaust & Genocide Centre (JHGC), with a large number of visitors.

Two very different facilities, in terms of layout, accessibility and available space, for which the Musealia team has developed a fully adapted version, customizing the museography, content and other elements that make up Seeing Auschwitz to the needs and characteristics of each room.

Seeing Auschwitz is an original creation of Musealia, in collaboration with the Auschwitz Birkenau State Museum, and the participation of the United Nations and the UN. During its development, initially conceived for the commemoration of the World Day of Remembrance of the Victims of the Holocaust, a panel of curators comprising renowned experts in the history of the camp and Holocaust education has been involved: Paul Salmons (chief curator), Robert Jan van Pelt and Miriam Greenbaum.
