"Different media pools will be created for journalists. The largest one will be the Press Center where simultaneous translations as well as TV & audio signal will be available. Outside of the Press Center „live broadcast” positions will be prepared," said Bartosz Bartyzel, the spokesman of the Museum.

"The second large pool will be located at the monument in Birkenau where camera operators and photojournalists will observe the laying of candles by former prisoners and official delegations. Inside the tent where the main event will be taking place there will be a small pool for photographers of the largest press agencies," added Bartyzel.

We will send the information about granting the accreditation and technical information about media coverage at the given e-mail until 23 January 2020 at the latest. 

The Polish television (TVP) will be the producer of the official TV broadcasting signal during the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz on 27 January 2020. The free TV signal available in satellite transmissions will be available to TV stations around the world. All TV stations interested in satellite transmission are advised to contact Ewa Borkowska from TVP (+48 22 547 68 55, ewa.borkowska@tvp.pl). 

Streaming of the anniversary events with simultaneous translation into Polish and English will also be available in HD quality at www.auschwitz.org, on YouTube and social media sites of the Auschwitz Memorial.
