Grand Circle Foundation Support for the Museum

20-10-1999

The Grand Circle Foundation of Boston, MA (USA) presented the Museum with a check for $73,000, earmarked for educational activities.

It will be used for the adaptation of part of the so-called Aufnahmegeb?ude. Remodeling will be carried out on the hotel rooms on the second floor, which are used by visiting students, researchers, and others working on the history of Auschwitz concentration camp.

The funds will also make it possible to modernize the small film screening room in Block No. 12, which is also used in Center activities.
