To ensure that the killings in the bunkers and crematoria were carried out with the greatest secrecy, the SS kept the Sonderkommando (Special Squad) prisoners isolated from the rest of the camp population.

However, from time to time, Sonderkommandos were able to inform the Polish resistance outside of the camp about the mass murder.

In June or July 1944, a Sonderkommando named Alberto Errera—known in Birkenau as “Alex the Greek”—hid a camera in his hip pocket and shot photographs on the grounds of Crematorium 5. In September, the roll of film—which contained four photographs—was smuggled to Kraków inside a tube of toothpaste. Taken in desperation and with enormous courage, the images bear witness to the crimes.

In early 1944, the Allies learned about the IG Farben Buna factory in Monowitz, an Auschwitz subcamp.

In April, they began taking aerial photos. Two months later, this picture was taken.

Although the camera also caught the larger environment around the works, at the time only the section showing the factory was enlarged. This full view was printed in 1979 and analyzed with technology not available in 1944.

Opinion | Auschwitz comes to the middle of America, with a powerful warning

"People must go to Auschwitz, and Auschwitz must go to the people.” So here it is, an indictment, a warning, a challenge: Come to the middle of the American map. A wooden freight car. A wire basket used to drop Zyklon B into the killing rooms. A section of concrete fence posts laced with electrified wire. A whip. An operating table for medical “experiments.” A baby’s shoe."

Thanks for this report Washington Post about the opening of Auschwitz Exhibition at Union Station Kansas City.

An exhibit explores themes — nationalism, populism, antisemitism — that feel disturbingly present.

While the first visitors are already entering the exhibition at Union Station Kansas City we would like to thank the priceless collaboration of the Auschwitz Memorial / Muzeum Auschwitz, the co-producer of the exhibition with Musealia, and the more than 20 other international institutions and private collectors that have lent part of their personal collections to be shown in a limited number of world capital cities.

Musealia is proud to present in Kansas City Auschwitz Exhibition thanks to the collaboration of our host Union Station Kansas City, and the support of Bank of America and the Midwest Center for Holocaust Education.

Today, on the 81st anniversary of the first transport of Polish prisoners to the newly created German Nazi camp, "Auschwitz: Not long ago. Not far away," opens to the public at Union Station.

During the Holocaust, the creation of ghettos was a key step in the Nazi process of brutally separating, persecuting, and ultimately destroying Europe's Jews.

Installed in front of Union Station as part of the "Auschwitz. Not long ago. Not far Away" exhibition, opening at Union Station on June 14, this authentic German-made Model 2 railway freight car is one of 120,000 built between 1910 and 1927 by the Deutsche Reichsbahn (German National Railway).

Before World War II, the car was used to transport food, goods and livestock. During the war, cars like this were used to transport Jews, Roma and others to ghettos, killing centers and the German Nazi concentration camps across Europe, including Auschwitz. Up to 100 people along with their belongings would be crammed into each car for what was often a several-day journey to a grim reality.

"Auschwitz. Not long ago. Not far away" opens at Union Station June 14 and runs thru January 2022.

From early 1942, when the mass gassing of Jews began, prisoners would bring belongings with them in the belief they were being resettled.

The Germans allowed them to carry up to 100 lbs.

They brought food, alcohol, household items, utensils, clothing, prams, medication, valuables, and professional tools, with their names, addresses and dates of birth on the luggage, all of which ended up in Kanada, like these compact powders displayed at Auschwitz Exhibition and brought by a female deportee to Auschwitz between 1942 and 1945.

Collection of the Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum.

Yehudit and her twin sister Lea were born on June 6, 1937 to Zvi and Rosalia Csengeri. In 1942 Zvi was into a Hungarian forced labor battalion and taken to the Ukraine. Although he was told he was only going for four weeks, he did not return until 1945.

Between that period, on May 4, 1944 Yehudit, Lea and their mother Rosie were taken to a transit camp and deported to #Auschwitz where the twins were selected for Josef Mengele and other Nazi physicians experiments.

Rosie worked disposing of bodies from the infirmary in Auschwitz to stay close to her daughters and managed to escape being sent to the gas chamber three different times.

They managed to survive until liberation and returned to their hometown where they reunited with Zvi.

Their parents lived to see nine great grandchildren born.

I hope this comes near Los Angeles, I really want to see it.
Have you heard about 40 sub-camps of Auschwitz-Birkenau camp? One of them was Arbeitslager Golleschau near border with Czechoslovakia. Two weeks ago we published a short 12-minutes' long documentary in Polish with English and Italian subtitles. Do you know that Jewish prisoners from Golleschau sub-camp were finally saved by Oskar Schindler? You can find this documentary here:
The Photograph He sits and looks at a photograph of a woman with beautiful hair. Her eyes are soft and maternal, with a beauty he wouldn’t compare. As he studies the photo more closely large tears appear in his eyes. Recalling his childhood in memories he breaths with a series of sighs. She taught him to love and to value never to hate or detest. Live life to full with great gusto follow dreams like a breath-taking quest. Laughter was what he remembered, a childhood as warm as the sun. Neighbours and friends from all cultures, cordially living as one. Their life was suddenly shattered, aspirations were crushed like a bug. Freedom exchanged for oppression and prejudice spread like a drug. His mother was dragged from his clutches pushed with the butt of a gun. He watched as she fell in the puddle, the horror for them had begun. The stench in the train was abhorrent, a mixture of fear with the sweat. Sadly their plight was not over, the nightmare was still to come yet! Frightened, cold and bewildered, bodies now shaking with fear. Thrown to the ground without question, their fate becoming more clear. He never again saw his mother, she vanish from view as he cried. What she taught him would have far more meaning, her wisdom was what he applied. As he looks at her beautiful image his forearm now comes into view. The world may know what had happened but not what they all had gone through ARBEIT MACT FREI “Work sets you free” Auschwitch. Teresa Harrison-Best 75th Anniversary

So extensive and well organized exhibit. You can even see it over few days. I recommend the headset. I’m so grateful to see this exhibit and also all the survivors sharing stories with us and next generations. This is so important.

How much are the tickets for this exhibition?
Please come to Southeastern Michigan. You choose! The Detroit Institute of Art or The Jewish Holocaust Museum...Thank you in advance.
Me ha parecido interesante esta exposición, pero quizás esperaba más. Al principio, cuando empieza a hablar la audioguía dice algo que se podría sacar mucho más provecho para que no se vuelva a repetir. Y quizás es una frase que a muchos se le pasa desapercibida. Es algo as´como "esta exposición está hecha para darnos cuenta de que nuestra sociedad de hoy en día no está muy lejos de aquélla que provocó este exterminio". No hubiera estado mal hacer un paralelo con lo que ocurrió entonces y lo que ocurre ahora, que a veces puede llegar a ser lo mismo. Por eso adjunto esta frase que me recuerda tanto a investigaciones actuales sobre manipulación genética para que los bebés "sean perfectos"
Todos necesitamos PAZ. La memoria, entretanto, alimenta la inquietud. Los que no pueden recordar el pasado están condenados a repetirla. Entresaco estas dos frases de la exposicion de "AUSCHWITZ. No hace mucho. No muy lejos", de esta muestra que exhibe el Centro de Exposiciones Arte Canal Madrid hasta el 3 de enero 2019, para recomendar de manera indispensable en estos tiempos de tanta euforia autoritaria. Esta exposición que de manera itinerante recorrerá los distintos lugares de Europa, nos hace un balance de la historia del Holocausto que llevó a la aniquilación de mas de 1.100.000 personas de las que el 90% eran judíos. Una clara evidencia de la catástrofe que sucede al odio y la intoleranciaintolerancia en el seno de la sociedad, cada vez mas diversa, es uno de los principales retos del futuro.
Tal y como se están poniendo las cosas este tipo de exposiciones deberían ser imprescindibles en los centros educativos.
