Total donations: $1,189,000 | Partnership: since 1995
Since 1947, the State Museum at Auschwitz-Birkenau has served as an indelible reminder of the definitive tragedy of the 20th century.
The former Nazi concentration camp stands as testimony to the lessons learned from the Holocaust so that the world may never forget what happened.
Declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1979, it is one of the most powerful and moving memorials in Europe.
Grand Circle Foundation partnered with the State Museum to support the renovation of the visitors center, the Auschwitz Education Center cinema and two classrooms along with the production of educational materials for teachers.
