In 1986, during a tour of Auschwitz, Ann Weiss discovered a storage facility and came across an archive of 2,400 personal photographs, which had been confiscated from Jewish deportees. In this lecture and presentation, Dr. Weiss, author of The Last Album: Eyes from the Ashes of Auschwitz-Birkenau, will share 200 of these unforgettable images, illuminating both the stories behind the faces and her path to discovering otherwise unknown photos—over 30 of which are currently on display in Auschwitz. Not long ago. Not far away.
