A story to shake the conscience of the world.

A universal warning of the dangers of antisemitism and intolerance.

Auschwitz was the largest Nazi concentration and death camp and the most lethal of all of them. More than 1,100,000 people were killed behind its barbed wire fences.

This touring exhibition brings together more 700 original objects for the first time. Created by Musealia and co-produced by the Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum, it provides a moving and accurate tour through one of the darkest chapters of human history.

More than 700 original objects.

Small personal belongings from some of the victims, physical structures from the huge camp, documents and unpublished audio-visual recordings make up a rigorous and moving tour with a clear goal, to help people experience first-hand how a place like Auschwitz could come into existence, as well as its terrible consequences.

It is an unforgettable reflection on the complex reality of Auschwitz and the nature of the human spirit.

A unique collaboration by more than 20 international museums.

International museums, including the Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum, Yad Vashem and the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, among others, contributed to this unique collection. It provides an unforgettable opportunity for visitors around the world to experience real life objects from Auschwitz first hand.

Bringing the reality of Auschwitz close to home.

As the exhibition tours the world, Musealia incorporates new objects that connect this universal history to local stories at every stop. This helps bring the enduring realities of Auschwitz closer to home and lets local people experience a more profound connection with the essential history of the Holocaust.
