We read mainly the large print wall paragraph exhibit postings in about 45 minutes because of time constraints. Thorough historical timelines back to the 1500’s. Follow the arrows for a sequential documentation. Glad we went!

We were incredibly fortunate to find this first-ever travelling exhibition on 'Auschwitz: Not long ago. Not far away' on our recent visit to Madrid. We can only echo the comments of other reviewers. The exhibition is in equal parts remarkable and truly horrifying. It is...More

Quite an emotional exhibition, as you walk through a variety of original artefacts. The exhibition is humble and easily displayed. You can follow the paths and not miss any of the sections. It is spaced out well, so people are able to move around comfortably....More

Very interesting, encompassing many aspects of the nazi regime, its rise, antisemitisme and the final solution, including testimonials of servivors and of sonderkomando members. Of course the heartbreaking silent objects such as shoes eye glasses and other belongings are worth the visit in themselves. Take...More

We really thought that at our age, we had read and seen everything we needed to, with regard to Auschwitz. We also assumed that after actually visiting the Auschwitz-Birkenau camp, we couldn't be moved or appalled any further....not so. Our visit to the camp was...More
