    Seeing Auschwitz is an exhibition that incorporates 100 photographs, sketches and testimonies of the German Nazi camp Auschwitz and the Holocaust.
  • EXAMINE IN DETAIL EACH IMAGE - Seeing Auschwitz: The Exhibition in Charlotte


    Seeing Auschwitz encourages us to look beyond the four edges of the photograph and through the veil of seemingly ordinary faces to confront the reality of what we are seeing.
  • REFLECTING ON THE MEANING TODAY - Seeing Auschwitz: The Exhibition in Charlotte


    Visitors are confronted by what it means to share the gaze of the perpetrator, the victim, the onlooker, and to reflect on what this means for us today.

Press Reviews

  • “These photographs that have shaped perceptions of Auschwitz were taken by the perpetrators of the Holocaust… A new exhibition, Seeing Auschwitz, confronts this head-on.”

  • “The exhibition immerses guests into horrific atrocities committed by the Nazis throughout the Second World War, and reflects on the evil crimes on the victims within the notorious concentration camp.”

  • “The images, captured by perpetrators, victims and liberators, provide unsettling perspective and stark evidence of mass murder, but also show the humanity of the people who perished there.”

  • “The vast collection of images come from varying sources including aerial allied pictures of the camps, documentation of the deportation process and living within Auschwitz as well as insight into life before the camps.”

  • “It displays photographs, sketches and testimonials, some of which were used to bring SS camp guards and their superiors to justice, and urges us to take more than a superficial look at their crimes.”
