Object Description

All white model of the 'ramp' at Auschwitz-Birkenau, on which new arrivals were selected for slave labour or death. Commissioned by IWM and created by artist Gerry Judah. The model is no longer required for the gallery, and IWM would like to pass it onto a new institution that would find this an ideal exhibit to share with and aid educating the public. Costs in the region of £27,000 would be associated with the acquisition of the Auschwitz Birkenau model, these would cover transport and preparation for re display. If you are interested in requesting this item, please contact me before 4 pm on Friday 1st October
