CINCINNATI (AP) - An exhibit opening at a Cincinnati museum commemorates the liberation of a notorious Nazi concentration camp where more than 1 million prisoners died during the Holocaust.

The exhibit about the liberation of Auschwitz (OW’-shvits) includes artifacts, photographs and personal stories from eyewitnesses and survivors of the camp run by the Nazis in Poland during World War II.

The exhibit is called “Unlocking the Gates of Auschwitz 70 Years Later.” It was starting Friday at the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center and runs until May 26.

It was developed by the Center for Holocaust and Humanity Education in partnership with the Freedom Center and the Cincinnati Museum Center. Holocaust center officials say the exhibit gives a voice to survivors and eyewitnesses and invites others to stand up against injustice.
