Auschwitz Memorial it is not only a vast territory and genuine post-camp blocks, barracks, guard towers… but also dozen thousands of exhibits of particular character, meaning and symbology. Memory is not given once and for all. When the last witnesses and survivors pass away, we need to build it collectively on what remains: accounts of former prisoners and genuine memorabilia connected with KL Auschwitz.
How do we teach about Auschwitz and the Holocaust in a time we are losing the last eyewitnesses to the history? Are we dealing exclusively with the transfer of historical information or should educators also look for references to problems and challenges of the contemporary world? Of what relevance today, are spoken and material evidence? These are just some of the questions posed during the international education conference "Remembrance has not matured in us yet...” which was held at the Auschwitz Memorial on 26-29 October.
