"Stories written in objects" is the title of an online education session scheduled for 20 March 2023. It will be translated simultaneously into English.
The session will include the screening of films from the remarkable documentary series "The History of Auschwitz in 33 Objects", created in collaboration between Polsat Television and the Auschwitz Museum. The films - through authentic objects related to the history of the German Nazi concentration and extermination camp - portray the horrifying scale of the crimes, the immensity of the suffering of the victims, and the strength of the prisoners' resistance.
