ONGOING REMEMBRANCE

In its regional premiere, more than 700 original objects are shown in the first traveling exhibition about the Auschwitz concentration camps. Auschwitz. Not long ago. Not far away. is coming to The Castle at Park Plaza on March 15, 2024.

Through this daunting selection of objects from the Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum in Poland, as well as more than 20 institutions and museums all over the world, this exhibition portrays the complex reality of the notorious camp while sharing first-hand stories from those who survived, and those who perished.

These remarkable artifacts range from:
  • Concrete posts that were part of the fence of the Auschwitz II-Birkenau camp
  • Fragments of an original prisoners’ barrack from the Auschwitz III-Monowitz camp
  • A gas mask used by the concentration camp officers
  • Personal items like shoes, clothing, children’s dolls, eyeglasses, and suitcases

When guests enter the Auschwitz exhibition, they will confront one of history’s darkest periods… but they will also be a part of an ongoing remembrance and will leave bearing the weight of society’s responsibility to combat hate and evil everywhere.

The Boston engagement of this exhibition is produced by Musealia in partnership with the Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum and in collaboration with the Cincinnati Museum Center.
