In Nazi death camps, the Nazis deliberately killed about 6 million people. This year the exhibition will feature 700 exhibits, telling about the terrible fate of the Jews and other Nations, fascism sentenced to elimination. German car, maybe not the most important, but the most visible showpiece of despair. 92-year-old ray Kaner, a Holocaust survivor, tells the Associated Press that like riding in this car in the extermination camp: «In one wooden box we crammed 80 people, without any tools, just a bucket for urine. You couldn’t go, so I had to sleep sitting up, and smell». Such wagons were used throughout Europe for deportation of people.

Van pelt, whose relatives lived at that time in Amsterdam, speaks to NBC about this car: «a Dark, smelly car represents the moment of transition from the world of the living, which people gave a radically alien world of the camps, where the doors were closed, and families were separated forever. The Nazis wanted to destroy every single one of the Jews throughout the world. Is the car in which was said «goodbye».

Among the exhibits there are concrete posts of the fence of Auschwitz (the camp where gas, starvation and executions were destroyed about 1 million Jews and 100 thousand representatives of other nationalities), are covered with barbed and electrified wire, the mask used SS, table, owned by the commandant of Auschwitz, as well as personal belongings of Heinrich Himmler, chief architect of the camp system of Nazi Germany, for example, his dagger.

The Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Museum, Bruce Ratner share what matters to him right now:

«Although after the Holocaust, we all hoped that the international community will come together to end genocide, mass murder and ethnic cleansing, these crimes are continuing, and refugees today, more than ever after the Second world war. I hope that this exhibition will make all of us to establish a link between the world of the past and present and the world to stand firmly against hatred».
