We were incredibly fortunate to find this first-ever travelling exhibition on 'Auschwitz: Not long ago. Not far away' on our recent visit to Madrid. We can only echo the comments of other reviewers. The exhibition is in equal parts remarkable and truly horrifying. It is...More

Quite an emotional exhibition, as you walk through a variety of original artefacts. The exhibition is humble and easily displayed. You can follow the paths and not miss any of the sections. It is spaced out well, so people are able to move around comfortably....More

Of course the heartbreaking silent objects such as shoes eye glasses and other belongings are worth the visit in themselves. Take...More

We really thought that at our age, we had read and seen everything we needed to, with regard to Auschwitz. We also assumed that after actually visiting the Auschwitz-Birkenau camp, we couldn't be moved or appalled any further....not so. Our visit to the camp was...More

A very good, and important, travelling exhibition making its first stop of a world tour in Madrid. It largely succeeds in making real the terrible realities of the Nazi extermination programme, and so can hopefully help prevent it fading into history - this was after...More

This is an exhibition you must visit. Very impressive and well documented. Adequate size for a 2-3 hours visit, but there are few things concerning the exhibition center that I did not like. The location is great but the organization regarding the access times was...More
