The Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial Foundation supports the Auschwitz-Birkenau Foundation (located in Poland) in raising an Endowment Fund to secure the preservation of the remains of the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum.
The Endowment Fund was created to make sure that future generations would be able to visit and see the authentic site and its artifacts. It is supported by governments of 36 countries, as well as by individual and institutional donors.
Our goal is to raise €120M which will provide an annual income of approximately $4-5M. This will secure our long-term conservation plan for preservation works to be completed at the Auschwitz Birkenau Memorial and Museum. To date, we have raised $112M of our $120M goal. We want to close the Endowment Fund by the 27th of January, 2020 which is the 75th Anniversary of the Liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau. At that time, we will announce to all survivors that the future preservation of the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum has been secured and that we will never forget what took place there.
Conservation of textiles.
The authentic remains of the camp include original brick and wooden barracks, crematoria, towers, archival materials, photographs, suitcases, prayer garments, glasses, pots and pans, shoes, works of art, and even Cyklone B cans.
Benefactors and philanthropists who donated €1 million to the Endowment Fund of the Auschwitz-Birkenau Foundation - established to secure the preservation of the remains of Auschwitz-Birkenau for future generations and supported by governments of 36 countries - have become true Pillars of Remembrance.
