There is only one thing worse than Auschwitz itself...
…and that is if the world forgets there was such a place.
| Henry Appel, Auschwitz survivor|
We all share an obligation to make people aware that the world should learn from history.
This is an obligation for every thinking adult.
Humanity has a lasting need for this Memorial, and today the Memorial also needs people to get involved and help.
Your help is very important—so that the world around us can be a little better.
The donations we receive are allocated for:
conserving the grounds, buildings, crematoria, barbed wire fences, and other original Auschwitz objects, as well as many other items and archival records.
Educating and informing the world about the Nazi crime of genocide and fostering the remembrance of the victims of Auschwitz-Birkenau
carrying out scientific research, publishing, and presenting exhibitions that document and inform about the crimes committed at this place.
