One of our ongoing projects within the Auschwitz Study Group is to collect post war and more contemporary photos concerning Holocaust sites in Europe. We aim to build the largest free archive of pictures that are then split into searchable categories such as: Concentration Camps, Death Camps, Ghetto's and sites of mass murder. In our personal collections, we have over 500,000 photos, mainly concerning the sub-camp system of Auschwitz and the industrial zones surrounding the camps, however the majority have not been uploaded yet, but are available upon request. We feel that it is important to show these former sites of death in their modern environment, against the backdrop of 21st century life. We have discovered that in many cases outside of the main museum run grounds, these places have been forgotten and neglected. Our photo collection project aims to correct the assumption that concentration camps were bound within the confines of memorial sites.

We work closely with concentration camp memorials such as Neuengamme, Dachau, Chełmno, Bergen-Belsen and many others who have been co-operative with our project. We also invite our followers to send us photos to help build our library. You can do so by sending them to This email address is being protected from spambots.
