Preservation

the endowment & donor recognition

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.

Please join us in reaching our goal.

Pillars of Remembrance
 

 

 
 
In loving memory of those who perished in the Shoah. May their memory always be a blessing. And in honor of those who survived, who left this terrible place and kept the human spirit alive.
— RONALD S. LAUDER
 
 

 
 
In honor of our beloved father Jona Goldrich and in memory of his father and mother, Alexander Goldreich and Elza Erdman Goldreich, who with his beloved brother, Eiz’o Goldreich, perished in the Holocaust.
— ANDREA GOLDRICH CAYTON & MELINDA GOLDRICH
 
 

 
 
 
 
In honour of my father, Hugo Lowy, who in a final act of spiritual resistance, chose to die here rather than relinquish his tallit and tefillin. His act will remain an inspiration for generations to come.
— FRANK LOWY
 
 

 
 
Genocide presents us with an image so appalling that it can be damaging even to look. But we know we must look. We know that repressing memory, willed forgetting, is perhaps the greatest danger we face as a species. If we want to remain fully human we have no choice but to confront and remember the past, to learn, and to act on what we’ve learned.
