After nearly 2 years at NYC's Museum of Jewish Heritage - A Living Memorial to the Holocaust time to close Auschwitz #NotlongagoNotfaraway exhibition doors has arrived.

The stay of the exhibition at the Museum in NYC has been a very important milestone for the project. Being able to tell this story here, in many ways the capital of the world, has been an important statement by itself.

Much stronger than ever before, NYC REMEMBERS

THANK YOU to all those who visited the exhibition and those who made it possible.

THANK YOU for helping us spread the lessons from Auschwitz and becoming witnesses of the Holocaust.

Gas chambers disguised as shower rooms were first used in Aktion T4, the Nazi program to murder the disabled.

Former T4 personnel transferred the practice to the death camps of Belzec, Sobibor, and Treblinka. The final incarnation of this ruse was the Auschwitz gas chambers.

They had shower nozzles hanging from the ceiling and what looked like water pipes on the walls; but it was a deception. The guards crowded as many as 2000 people inside. Within 20-30 minutes everyone was dead.

In the picture, we can see a group of male newly prisoners of Auschwitz leave the real shower rooms of the main delousing building in Auschwitz-Birkenau (1943 or 1944).

Auschwitz was the most lethal of the German concentration camps, but also, given the vast numbers of people deported to it, the one with the most survivors who escaped the Nazi massacre.

The Jewish tailor of Polish nationality Jakob Grünbaum was one of them. After the forced Aryanization of his small atelier on ulica św. Gertrudy 17 in Kraków in early 1940, he was confined in eight concentration camps in barely four years.

After liberation, he ran into the harshest of realities: He had no job or home to return to, and none of his closest relatives had survived, so he decided to emigrate out of Poland and begin a new life in Altötting, a town in the German region of Upper Bavaria, where he would soon establish a new atelier.

As chance would have it after the war, the US Army found in a local monastery used as a warehouse by the Nazis some bolts of the woolen Feldgrau (field-grey) used to make the mythical Waffen-SS uniforms designed by the German Hugo Boss and gave them to the new tailor in town.

He did not turn them down, but made a pattern that harkened back to the easier days before 1939 and cut and fashioned a comfortable woolen robe of which he made use the rest of his life.

Like Grünbaum, many Auschwitz survivors not only did not want to forget what happened but also decided to bear it vividly in mind on a daily basis, as an homage to victims and at the same time, as a reminder of the consequences of hatred and intolerance.

The Bornplatz Synagogue in Hamburg, dedicated in 1904, was the largest synagogue in northern Europe.

On Kristallnacht, Nazis destroyed its interior, and in 1939 it was demolished. Members of the congregation were able to save some Torah scrolls.

When in March 1940, Dr. Seligmann Bamberger and his family obtained passage to New York, they were able to smuggle one of the Torah scrolls out of Germany.

The Anschluss (unification) of Austria with Germany in March 1938 triggered an eruption of hatred and violence against Austrian Jews, surpassing any such previous display in Germany.

In fact, immediately after Anschluss, the Nazis started instituting anti-Jewish measures throughout the country.

Jews were expelled from all cultural, economic and social life in Austria. Jewish businesses were ‘aryanised’ and either sold for a fraction of their value or seized outright. Jewish citizens were humiliated as they were commanded to perform different menial tasks, without any consideration of age, social position or sex.

The Iron Cross was the German medal given to soldiers of all ranks for acts of personal courage during battle.

This medal belonged to the German Jewish tailor Salli Joseph (1889–1943), who server during World War I.

In 1939, Salli and Martha’s son, Bernard, found refuge in Great Britain. Shortly after the second photo was taken, sixteen-year-old Margot was able to leave Germany for Palestine. Her father entrusted her with the Iron Cross he had earned in the defense of the Vaterland (Fatherland).

This medal did not protect Salli during the Holocaust: he and his wife, Martha Joseph (née Danziger), were deported to Auschwitz in March 1943. Both were murdered shortly after their arrival.

Bronisław Czech’s carpentry and woodworking skills were recognized by the SS, who employed him in the camp workshop.

In 1941, Czech was employed in the fledgling art gallery the SS had established as part of the camp headquarters. He lost the relative protection of this job when, in February 1944, he was reassigned as a cleaner.

A few months later he caught typhus and died.

Bronisław Czech was a gifted skier, who won championships of Poland 24 times in various skiing disciplines, including Alpine skiing, Nordic skiing and ski jumping. A member of the Polish national team at three consecutive Winter Olympics, he was also one of the pioneers of mountain rescue in the Tatra Mountains and a glider instructor.

During the Second World War he was a soldier of Polish Underground (Home Army) and courier from occupied Poland to the West. He was captured by Germans and imprisoned in Auschwitz, where his carpentry and woodworking skills were recognized by the SS, who employed him in the camp workshop.

In 1941, Czech was employed in the fledgling art gallery the SS had established as part of the camp headquarters. He lost the relative protection of this job when, in February 1944, he was reassigned as a cleaner.

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.

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.
