Israeli museum to show Auschwitz plans


In the week that marks 65 years since the liberation of Auschwitz, the original blueprints of the Nazi death camp are set to go on display in Israel.

The Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial in Jerusalem will show the collection of 29 plans from Monday.

The prints were found in an abandoned Berlin apartment in 2008.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyhu is set to attend the opening, before flying to Poland for a Holocaust remembrance service.

Over one million people, mostly Jews, lost their lives at Auschwitz between 1941 and 1945. They died in gas chambers or through hard labour, starvation or disease.
