Details

Unfortunately, very little has been written about the conservation and protection of what remains of the former camp. Most writers have been concerned with documenting the crimes, with the numbers and origins of the prisoners and the ways of commemorating them, as well as with the symbolism of Auschwitz and the education of the young, post-Auschwitz generations. The relatively few works written about conservation issues remain somewhere on the periphery.

Rymaszewski's account is a welcome addition to the literature. For many years, Rymaszewski has been interested in the preservation of the material heritage of Auschwitz, and he has been involved in important decisions concerning its conservation.
