 Memorial (346 pictures)

Photographs showing a contemporary image of the sites of the former Auschwitz-Birkenau camp (i.e. ruins of the crematories and gas chambers, huts for prisoners or memory places), including places unavailable for visitors.


Photographs showing both the permanent and national exhibitions that can be visited at the State Museum Auschwitz-Birkenau as well as pictures documenting work of different departments of the Museum.


The art collection of the Museum has most of all pieces created secretly by prisoners of the concentration camp. This is an important document of tragic reality of the camp as well as a significant expression of feelings and experiences of their authors. In the Museum collections there are also a lot of post-war art created by prisoners which are important visual testimonies.



The Auschwitz Memorial is not only the vast site and authentic camp buildings, barracks and watch towers... it is also thousands of items with their unique character and symbolics.
