Harrowing Legacy: Auschwitz, 75 Years Later

On January 27, 1945, Soviet troops liberated Auschwitz, the Nazi concentration camp in Southwest Poland. 

Over 1 million Jews and tens of thousands of others were killed at this sprawling complex of 48 concentration and extermination camps.  

The Museum of Jewish Heritage has mounted a groundbreaking memorial, bringing together more than 700 original objects and 400 photographs from around the world.  

Beliefs Producer Jay Woodward visited the exhibit, “Auschwitz. Not long ago. Not far away,” and spoke with museum president Jack Kliger.
