On 27th of January 2023, 78 years have passed since the liberation of the Auschwitz concentration camp. There is no place in the world more marked by death. During the operation of Auschwitz (1940-1945), about 1.1 million people were killed here, of which 1 million were Jews.
The exhibition tells about about 2,300 people from Slovenia who were taken to this camp. The majority were Slovenians, but among those deported there were also around 350 Jews, at least 78 Roma and at least one member of Jehovah’s Witnesses. For around 1,300 of them, Auschwitz is the place of death.
The exhibition, prepared by the Synagogue Maribor, was put on display for the first time on 23rd of January 2020 as part of the Shoah – Let Us Remember 2020 project.
