    The Auschwitz Album, published jointly by the Foundation and the publishing house Editions Al Dante, consists of a collection of almost 200 photographs, taken by members of the SS in May and June 1944, during the massive deportation of Hungarian Jews to Birkenau.

    Discovered in 1945 by a survivor of the camp, Lili Jacob, it is a unique document, because it contains the only existing photographs documenting the process of Jewish extermination at the camp of Auschwitz-Birkenau.
