"In Gusen" film screening in Berlin

In Gusen film screening in Berlin

Referred to by inmates as "the most terrible murder factory in the world" and by the SS as "an extermination camp for Polish intellectuals," today there are only remnants left of the Gusen concentration camp, which are gradually disappearing from the Earth's surface over time. Soon, the existence of such a vile place could become unbelievable. How can we prevent this?

We invite you to the screening of "In Gusen," a documentary film by Marek Zając and Mirosław Krzyszkowski. Following the screening, there will be a discussion about the past and present of the Gusen concentration camp memorial site, featuring Prof. Dr. Johannes Tuchel, Martha Gammer (member of the local association Memorial Service Committee Gusen), and Johannes Schraps (member of the ENRS advisory board and member of the Bundestag), moderated by Prof. Dr. Jan Rydel (ENRS Steering Committee).
The aim of the documentary is to disseminate and preserve the memory of the victims of the German concentration camp within the international community. Through firsthand accounts from former prisoners, archival documents, and witness testimonies from perpetrators, the film sheds light on the everyday tragedy that unfolded within the camp walls.  
As the largest subcamp of the Mauthausen concentration camp, between 1939 and its liberation in May 1945, 71,000 individuals from almost 30 nations were imprisoned in Gusen. More than half did not survive their captivity.
