Discover the rich history of Oświęcim, Poland – the town the Germans
called Auschwitz – through photographs that trace the life of the town and
its Jewish residents, from the 16th century through the post-war period.
A Town Known as Auschwitz: The Life and Death of a Jewish Community is made possible through the generous support of the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany: Rabbi Israel Miller Fund for Shoah Research, Documentation and Education; The David Berg Foundation; Salo W. and Jeannette M. Baron Foundation; Trust for Mutual Understanding; and the Nartel Family Foundation.
