In connection with the World Youth Day (WYD), scheduled to take place next year in Cracow, the Auschwitz Memorial and Museum will be accessible to visitors on special conditions. Changes in the organisation of tours are the result of huge interest in the former German Nazi concentration and extermination camp Auschwitz-Birkenau on the part of participants of the WYD.
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.
