On the last weekend of October 1938, 25,000 Jews with Polish passports were arrested, rounded up and deported by train to the Polish border. This exhibition marks the 85th anniversary of the expulsion.
Our rich 90-year history makes us the world’s oldest continuously functioning archive documenting Nazi crimes. Join us this year in contemplating, commemorating and celebrating this incredible milestone
