The Auschwitz exhibition shop is open Monday to Sunday and offers visitors a wide range of books, audiovisual material and other stationery and arts materials related to the study of the Holocaust and the different groups of victims persecuted by Nazi Germany.
This booklist will be updated once a week and, in addition to a wide range of volumes published by the Auschwitz–Birkenau Memorial and Museum (in Spanish and English), includes a selection of classic and new titles related to Shoah.
The most popular publication since the opening of the exhibition in December 2017 has been the catalogue of ‘Auschwitz: Not long ago, Not far away’ (141 pages, colour, published by Palacios y Museos), in both Spanish and English versions.
It summarises the history of the largest camp of Nazi Germany through a tour of the 25 rooms that make up the exhibition and a selection from the collection of over 600 original objects. It also includes unpublished texts from the team of curators and the people behind the exhibition, as well as over 150 photographs.
