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.
