The Auschwitz Birkenau Blueprints: Facts and FAQs

Sun, 26 Mar, 2017 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

JMM is delighted to welcome Marlene Yahalom, Director of Education of the American Society of Yad Vashem. Ms. Yahalom will speak about the Auschwitz Birkenau blueprints, which are on display in “The Architecture of Murder” section of Remembering Auschwitz: History, Holocaust, Humanity, now on view in the Samson, Rossetta, and Sadie B. Feldman Gallery.

 

Auschwitz-Birkenau, the largest of the Nazi death camps across Europe, has become synonymous with terror, extermination and the Holocaust. Through this talk we will learn more about the transition from persecution to murder, and the implementation of the Final Solution. Ms. Yahalom will take us through an exploration of the artifacts and blueprints that detail the camp’s construction and that constitute extraordinary documentation for the future and deepen our knowledge about this chapter in history.
