A miniature model of the Auschwitz concentration camp complex fills the entire stage. Barracks, railroad tracks, thousands of finger-sized figurines and that gate auguring horror with its inscription »Arbeit macht frei« (Work brings freedom). Without words, the Rotterdambased theatre collective Hotel Modern attempts to make the unimaginable
imaginable and shows film sequences developed live on stage telling of the daily horror of one of history’s biggest mass murders.
