New technologies in education
While nothing can supplant the personal experience of the Memorial’s authenticity, the pandemic triggered the search for new ways to reach schools and communities that temporarily could not visit the Museum.
The Israeli company AppsFlyer is creating innovative tools to give millions of people the opportunity to visit the Memorial with an educator via the Internet. The Israeli company Diskin is responsible for the creative component of the project.
The Polish company Real Invented Studio is the author of a detailed reconstruction of the Birkenau campsite in digital 3D technology, working closely with Museum historians and educators. The resulting tool will provide visitors with the opportunity to experience the May-June 1944 camp space both on-screen and using VR goggles.
This area of the Museum’s development activities has been made possible with the support of the Auschwitz-Birkenau Foundation, which - in addition to building a fund to preserve the authenticity of the Memorial - has begun to raise additional funds for education.
The development of projects in the online space would not have been possible without the allnew broadband internet access throughout the Memorial. Thanks to Orange Polska technological support, the Museum will gain a modern 4G/5G infrastructure and enhanced fibre optic and wireless connectivity.
