The New Exhibiton

On 13th April 2012 the new exhibition was opened for the public. Responsible for the research was Dr. Marc Bartuschka. The new exhibition is located in the visitor centre and the great barn. Authentic exhibits such as mess tins as well as an accurate scale model complete the exhibition. The research was supported by the Buchenwald Memorial Foundation.
