This exhibit, made up of some 700 original objects and 400 photographs, is the largest about Auschwitz ever shown in North America and the first dedicated to the camp's historical impotance and its transition from an ordinary Polish town to the most significant Nazi site. Among the items on view are an original German-made Model 2 freight wagon used for deportation of Jews; a barrack from Auschwitz III-Monowitz; Picasso’s Lithograph of Prisoner; and original drawings by Alfred Kantor and David Olère. They are accompanied by personal items and other artifacts from the Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum. Admission to this exhibit requires timed tickets and includes an audio guide, which is available in eight languages.
