The major events chronicling the step-by-step implementation of the ‘Final Solution’ are explained with state-of-the-art exhibits.
Concentration camps, ghetto life and Wannsee Conference exhibits prepare the visitor for the extermination process put into action by the Nazi bureaucracy.
Disturbing images are enclosed in pull-out drawers.
The visitor gets to feel the confinement of a crowded cattle car and listens to a survivor describe Auschwitz as he revisits the arrival ramp 60 years later.
Turning the corner, one enters The Abyss, where a series of seven audiovisual screens show the scenes which the liberators encountered as they entered the camps.
The silence of The Abyss is broken in the Survivors' Theater as Detroit area survivors tell about their individual experiences.
