The greatest crime ever committed by architects

-- Dr. Robert Jan van Pelt, exhibition principal and University Professor, University of Waterloo School of Architecture  

An examination of the chilling role architecture played in constructing Auschwitz.

The Evidence Room is a powerful installation which reconstructs key objects used in the forensic analysis of the architecture of Auschwitz. Historian Robert Jan van Pelt introduced the objects as evidence in a court case to demonstrate that Auschwitz was purposefully designed as a death camp.

In partnership with Facing History and Ourselves, this workshop invites high school teachers to experience The Evidence Room exhibition with an introduction and tour led by historian Robert Jan van Pelt, to explore connections to ROM permanent collections and historical artifacts of the Third Reich and the Holocaust in the hands-on lab, and to examine the human connections that give meaning to the objects in the Evidence Room.

In this workshop, you will:

  • Experience an exhibition that shows undeniable forensic architectural evidence that Hitler’s National Socialist government, the Nazis, designed and carried out the murder of over one million Jews at Auschwitz-Birkenau during the Holocaust.
  • Identify connections for Grade 10 Canadian History and Grade 12 World History Teachers to ROM permanent collections and touch authentic objects in our hands-on lab
  • Discover teaching strategies and resources to prepare your students before, and debrief your students after entering the Evidence Room
