Auschwitz Blueprints

Yad Vashem director Avner Shalev points out features of Auschwitz-Birkenau as he introduces the media to the exhibition of the original blueprints of the Nazi death camp at the Holocaust Memorial on January 24 in Jerusalem, Israel. The original plans were given to Yad Vashem for safekeeping in 2009 by the German newspaper Bild, published by the Axel-Springer group, and will go on official display this week, sixty-five years after the liberation of the camp by the Soviet Red Army.
