Over a million people died at Auschwitz-Birkenau during World War II
A new exhibition which recognises Holocaust Memorial Day 2010 is coming to Bath later this month.
The travelling exhibition, entitled 'Never Again? Thinking About the Holocaust', will be on show until January 22 at the Guildhall.
In particular, the exhibition asks how the Holocaust could have happened in a civilised country.
Holocaust Memorial Day commemorates the loss of life in genocides across the world and takes place on January 27.
Holocaust Memorial Day is commemorated internationally on the same date each year.
The date was chosen as it is the anniversary of the day in 1945 on which the Soviet Army liberated the largest Nazi concentration camp - Auschwitz-Birkenau.
The exhibition features photos and commentaries covering refugees, Nazi propaganda and the Legacy of Nuremberg among other aspects of the Holocaust.
The exhibition has been borrowed from the Wiener Library in London.
Councillor Sarah Bevan, who specialises in human rights, said: "[The exhibition] makes fascinating viewing.
"I will be encouraging as many people as possible to pop in and have a look and a think about this year's Holocaust Memorial Day theme, 'The Legacy of Hope' while they browse around the exhibition."
