#Museum Week – Faces of Auschwitz

logoMWOne of the organisations I have spotted during #MuseumWeek is the site Faces of Auschwitz.

Anyone who has been reading this site over the last few weeks will know that I recently established that at least three Orlando’s had perished at Dachau Concentration Camp.

We know the horrors of the Second World War, but I had not considered it in the concept of my One-Name Study. Just looking at the tweets from the Faces of Auschwitz and their re-tweets you can see the scale of things. One of the things that I found very poignant, was this tweet and the selection of images that Faces of Auschwitz retweeted from Auschwitz Museum & Memorial. The tweet relates to  a group of Jewish women who had been deported from Hungary. They left their names and other personal information on a wall of the disinfection barracks at Auschwitz II-Birkenau BIa sector – part of the female camp.
