SYNOPSIS

70 years after Auschwitz Museum was founded as the memorial site of the Shoah, this site is subject to diversions, confrontations and plundering. Several attempts to exploit and rewrite its history are at work. The danger of desensitization through mass tourism, or the attempts of the local town and its citizens to simply erase the nightmare to make place for new urban landscape are real threats affecting the future of this memorial site. Today, as the last survivors are passing on, what to do with the Auschwitz site?

2019: 40th anniversary of the day when Auschwitz has been declared Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO

27 January: International Holocaust Remembrance Day
