The Xinhua news agency reports that a concentration camp exhibition Nazi crimes has opened in Shanghai on Thursday.

The exhibition concentrates on the Auschwitz death camp, and will remain on long-term display at the Shanghai Jewish Refugees Museum (SJRM), said museum curator Chen Jian.


Chen described the exhibition as comprised of thirty display boards illustrating how the camp was erected, and the acts of brutality committed there by Nazi soldiers.

Video records and recreated camp items, such as prisoners’ uniforms and cages where prisoners were kept and abused, are also included in the exhibition, marking the first time such items have been shown in China.

The exhibition was co-organized by the SJRM and the Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum.
