Preserving the history: Inside the Conservation Laboratories at Auschwitz-Birkenau

The Conservation Laboratories of the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial Museum work to preserve every shoe, every document, and every building on the site of the former concentration camp. WJC President Ronald S. Lauder has raised tens of millions of dollars to fund the conservation efforts at Auschwitz. On Friday, he visited the concentration camp with German Chancellor Angela Merkel.


Three of my photographs, taken at 27.01.2015 (70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz), from the Conservation Laboratories and Auschwitz-Birkenau are shown at this short film: "Preserving the history: Inside the Conservation Laboratories at Auschwitz-Birkenau"
