Map of Soła Tannery, Oświęcim, Poland, November 1947

This is another project I am working on with Jody Russell Manning, Ph.D., professor of history at Rowan University’s Center for Holocaust & Genocide Studies.  I created this map using a hand-drawn “memory” map.  The site is a tannery in Oświęcim (Auschwitz), Poland, used during WWII as a storage area for personal belongings of the prisoners.  Later, in the 1990’s, the facility was used as a discotheque.  A second map will be created using a similar map drawn from memory.  As with the Dachau maps, this map was created in Adobe Illustrator CC.
