“There is only one thing worse than Auschwitz itself …

and that is if the world forgets there was such a place”
                                                           Henry Appel


“No-one can change the past. The future, though, lies in our hands. Help us to preserve the authenticity of Auschwitz-Birkenau. Help us to warn man of himself. Do not allow history to fall silent. Save memory.”
Dr Piotr M.A. Cywiński, President of the Auschwitz-Birkenau Foundation


The Auschwitz Museum occupies a vast space of several hundred hectares, comprising hundreds of preserved buildings and structures, such as blocks and barracks for prisoners, the ruins of the gas chambers and crematoria, technical infrastructure that facilitated the functioning of the camp, railway track, guard towers, and thousands of fence posts for the barbed-wire fence. It also has tens of thousands of relics, from cans of Zyklon B, through documents and photographs, and personal effects of camp victims, to piles of human hair, all documenting different fragments of the crime committed here. The conservation for future generations of this material evidence of the genocide perpetrated here requires vast financial outlay.
By making a donation to the Auschwitz-Birkenau Foundation you are supporting the conservation work at the Site of Memory in Auschwitz and helping to preserve it for future generations.
