Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial Foundation

together we will preserve memory


The generation of Auschwitz survivors is fading away.

The former concentration camp prisoners and eyewitnesses of the Shoah, have devoted their lives to the mission of keeping the memory of the Holocaust alive. Today, as their mission is coming to an end, they understand better than anyone else that their work and toil might be in vain if we do not succeed in bequeathing the material evidence of this terrible crime to future generations. The German Nazi concentration and extermination camp Auschwitz-Birkenau remains the most important of these testimonies: once a place of suffering and death, today it is a memorial site visited by millions of people from around the world.

Auschwitz-Birkenau is one of the most widely recognized symbols of racism, bigotry, and hatred where untold millions suffered unthinkable and heinous treatment under Nazi tyranny. While there are hundreds of other historically important former camps and mass grave sites, Auschwitz-Birkenau has become a symbol of the Holocaust.

The preservation of Auschwitz-Birkenau is essential to making sure that future generations can visit and learn about how the world allowed such a place of hatred and persecution to exist. It is also an important educational tool to show those who doubt that the Holocaust ever existed that indeed, tragically, it did.

There is only one thing worse than Auschwitz itself ... and that is if the world forgets there was such a place.
— Henry Appel, Auschwitz survivor
