Auschwitz. Not long ago. Not far away. was the most comprehensive exhibition dedicated to the history of Auschwitz and its role in the Holocaust ever presented. In a virtual program from April 28, 2020, Luis Ferreiro, Director of Musealia and of the exhibition project, shared how the exhibition developed from an idea in 2009 to a reality almost ten years later, including the story of an unprecedented collaboration between Musealia and the Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum and the exhibition’s arrival in New York.

Ferreiro explored the complex emotional and logistical challenges that explain, at the heart of the matter, how the exhibition was created.
