Greece is the 37th country that joined the creation of the Endowment Fund of the Auschwitz-Birkenau Foundation. The support will amount to 5,000 euros.
Representatives of the donor countries supporting the Auschwitz-Birkenau Foundation's Endowment Fund met on October 24 in Oświecim for the 7th session of the International Committee. They had the opportunity to see, for the first time the progress of conservation works at the former German Nazi concentration and extermination camp Auschwitz-Birkenau, which are funded by the Foundation.
The conservation project has been completed on securing the northern and western wall of the ruins of the gas chamber and crematorium III undressing rooms on the site of the former Auschwitz II-Birkenau camp. The works were financed with funds from the Auschwitz-Birkenau Foundation.
Almost 350 striped uniforms worn by prisoners of the German Nazi concentration camp Auschwitz, including 250 tallitot, civilian and children's clothes belonging to camp victims, primarily Jews deported for extermination, will be transferred to the modernised textile warehouse. The project was financed by the Auschwitz-Birkenau Foundation.
The Council of the Auschwitz-Birkenau Foundation held its session on 19 June in Warsaw. The main objective of the Auschwitz-Birkenau Foundation is to finance the conservation of the authentic remains of the former Nazi German concentration and extermination camp Auschwitz-Birkenau. During the session, the members extended the term of office of Zbigniew Nosowski and Marek Zając, who was again elected as the Chairperson of the Council.
