Event Details

OPENING MARCH 24, 2023 FOR A LIMITED ENGAGEMENT
SELLOUTS EXPECTED; PLAN YOUR VISIT IN ADVANCE
10am-5pm daily | March 24 – August 13
The exhibition brings together more than 700 original objects of great historic and human value; objects which were direct witnesses of the horrors of Auschwitz and the Holocaust. These objects serve as the guiding thread of a rigorous and moving account on the history of the German Nazi camp Auschwitz and its dwellers, both victims and perpetrators.
Through this daunting selection of objects from the Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum as well as more than 20 institutions and museums all over the world, the Auschwitz exhibition portrays the complex reality of the notorious camp, universal symbol of the human tragedies that resulted from Nazi ideology, and the world of victims and perpetrators with a clear goal – to elucidate how such a place could come into being and dig into how its existence has determined our present worldview.
Most of these objects have never been shown to an audience in the West Coast before.
Recommended for ages 12 and older.
