The presentation is based on the block 4 record book. Covering the period from January 20 to August 22, 1942, it contains a total of 2,100 entries referring to 2,047 male prisoners. The presentation goes beyond this time period and uses other groups of documents to trace the stories of a selected group of prisoners whose names have gone down in the history of the camp. Prisoners from this block were confined in the bunker, assigned to the penal company, or executed. Among them were members of the camp resistance movement. Clandestine meetings of the Auschwitz Fighting Group took place in block 4.
