Expert conference: "The Role of Museums and Memorials in the Changing World" | Online broadcast


On 1 July we wish to invite to the online streaming of the expert conference "The Role of Museums and Memorial Sites in the Changing World" organised on the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the creation of the Memorial on the site of the former German Nazi concentration and extermination camp Auschwitz.


The streaming will be available at, on the Museum's YouTube channel and on our Facebook page.

The event will be attended by people professionally involved in the functioning of museums and memorial sites dealing with the history of concentration camps, extermination centres, the Holocaust and the tragedy of the Second World War.

'Memorial Sites and Museums that carry a message of unique importance for all humanity must today deepen the fundamental reflection over the work of remembrance, education and formation, on our dialogue with the world, and on the clarity of our message. I think that the 75th anniversary of the Auschwitz-Birkenau Museum is the best moment to begin such a broad and collective reflection, and thanks to the direct online broadcast the words of the international group of experts, will be able to reach people around the world,' said Auschwitz Museum Director Dr. Piotr M. A. Cywiński.

The conference will begin on 5 July at 12.00 CET (UTC+2)
