Event details

This limited series of black and white photographs depict portions of what remains of Auschwitz KZ I-II.

Orjan Henriksson, Photographer/Artist, says his “photographs want to portray the emptiness after all those humiliated, tortured and murdered in Auschwitz.” He goes on to describe them as, “not ostentatious images that scream out loud. Instead, I let the walls and surfaces depict the total silence that only death leaves behind.” 
The exhibit originally opened at Liljevalchs Konsthall in Stockholm. Marten Castenfors, Head Liljevalch, said, “we must never forget, that we must never deny that we constantly need to be reminded of the thoughts, the words and the actions which destroyed six million people. We must never ever stop watching and reading and listening to the images and voices that represent what happens when you stop to see your fellow human beings as human beings like you and me. 
The exhibit is free and open to the public whenever the Bicknell Center is open — typically Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Fridays from 8 a.m. until noon, and for special events.
