Five metal stamps for tattooing prisoner numbers – a new item in our Collections (3,3, 0 and two stamps that can be 6 or 9). This is one of the most important finds in recent years.   Initially, the tattoos were applied to a left breast of a prisoner. A stamp fitted with sharp needles perforated the skin, and ink was rubbed into the wounds.

Groups of visitors starting their tour at the Auschwitz Memorial today (March 13). We hope that it is one of the last snowy and cold days this year. However, snow gives a completely different experience of the site.
