Auschwitz Birkenau Exhibition

Event Details

Tuesday, November 12, 2019
All day
Gallery 1308, Union South
This exhibition portrays the development of Nazism in Germany, the barbaric nature of German occupation of Poland and the horrific history of the camp. Established originally to incarcerate Polish prisoners, in 1942 the camp became the largest site of the extermination of the Jews and consequently, the symbol of Holocaust. Join us for this important pop-up exhibition in Gallery 1308 at Union South. Hosted by the Wisconsin Union Directorate Art Committee, the Polish Heritage Club of Wisconsin - Madison, and the Department of German, Nordic and Slavic, with support from the UW Center for Jewish Studies.
