The exhibition was prepared by the Museum Auschwitz-Birkenau and illustrates the most important aspects of the history of the concentration camp, strengthening of National Socialism and the specific elements of the German terror during the occupation of Poland. The exhibition, along with photographs and documents shows the forbidden art of concentration camp prisoners and postwar testimonies of former prisoners.
