Throughout the world, various anniversary ceremonies, conferences, exhibitions and meetings are scheduled. The Auschwitz Museum and the United Nations have built a Map of Remembrance with the goal to bring together the various memorial activities taking place.
For the past three years, the Google Cultural Institute has been working with institutions and associations to preserve and share online thousands of archives, images and videos telling the stories from the Holocaust. The Auschwitz Museum participated in this project from the beginning, adding hundreds of documents and inviting you to discover individual stories like the love of Edek Galinski and Mala Zimetbaum or the unique collection of family photographs found in the ruins of the camp. Learn more on the “Evacuation and Liberation of the Auschwitz camp" and the “Sonderkommando" through these new online exhibitions.
For this anniversary, the USC Shoah Foundation, who shared with the world poignant testimonials of survivors through another exhibition, “70 Stories of Auschwitz”, inviting you to listen to the survivors as they recall their experiences in short and moving personal videos. Famed filmmaker Steven Spielberg assembled them into this moving film.
We encourage everyone to (re)discover these stories from the Holocaust - and remember, never again.
