During this timely, webinar Director General Soczewica will be interviewed by club member Michael Traison.  They will discuss the physical enormity of Auschwitz-Birkenau (20 separate camps), the events that occurred there, its continuing importance in contemporary life - especially in light of last year's global increase in anti-Semitic attacks, and the mission of the Foundation to preserve Auschwitz-Birkenau for future generations.
