Death Camps Memorial Site project

Death Camps Memorial Site is a historical and educational project about the German Nazi concentration and extermination camps and mass crimes committed, among, others by the SS, SD, Gestapo, Einsatzgruppen.

All texts on the website have been written by me, based on 16 years of expanding knowledge by studying such materials as: historical sources, archives and museum collections, the Institute of National Remembrance materials, testimonies of witnesses and consultations with museum staff and guides.

The aim of the project is to spread knowledge related to the events that took place during World War II, including topics such as genocide, the Holocaust, crimes against humanity. The project is conducted in the following languages: Polish and English. It is international thanks to the use of the Internet, social media services, streaming platforms and by organizing, among others, educational meetings, lectures, and research trips.

Paweł Krupiński

My name is Paweł Krupiński. In my free time I travel around historical places, mainly Nazi Germans death camps. For over 16 years I have visited various concentration and extermination camps more than 300 times, both privately and commercially. Historical consultations, hundreds of books read, documentary and historical films watched about the Holocaust, camps, the Third Reich and the German Empire (starting with the Thule Society, from 1918 to 1945), followed by the fate of post-war Nazi criminals and the history of World War II. In addition to the camps, I also visit other historical places (Wolf's Lair, Pomeranian Wall, place of Operation Anthropoid, etc.)

I work as a programmer / IT specialist. I live in Katowice - Poland (30 minutes from the Auschwitz Museum). I run an IT company APN IT - Modern Information Technology - www.apnit.pl, which also prepared this website. In my free time I am also an angler and musician, but the passion I devote most of my time to is the history of World War II.


Implementation of the project:

Website / social media / multimedia

I "transfer" my knowledge to the articles which I write  based on 16 years of expanding knowledge by studying such materials as: historical sources, archives and museum collections, the Institute of National Remembrance materials, testimonies of witnesses and consultations with museum staff and guides. The articles are also translated into English by a MA in Translation Studies, and then placed in over 100 Polish and English Facebook groups. The articles also contain original: photos, films, drone recordings, animations, maps, etc. From time to time, I also organize competitions in which the prizes are books about the camps, funded by the publishing houses with which I cooperate. I also plan to translate the page into other foreign languages.

Trips and research expeditions

I often travel to places such as Auschwitz, Auschwitz Birkenau, Treblinka, Sobibór, Bełżec, Majdanek, Chełmno nad Nerem, Stutthof, Gross-Rosen, Płaszów, Pustków, Theresienstadt, and other places related to genocide and martyrdom. I am constantly expanding my knowledge on the subject of death camps, extermination, the Holocaust, Nazi crimes, and crimes against humanity. I also immortalize these places in photos and videos, which I later publish on the web and social media. I also provide photos free of charge, e.g. for newspapers or publications, as well as for scientific works (e.g. master's, bachelor's, etc.).

Publications

"Auschwitz sub-camps: yesterday and today" - I am currently working on a book on the sub-camps of the former German Nazi concentration and extermination camp Auschwitz. Few people know that apart from the Auschwitz, there were 48 Auschwitz sub-camps (including Birkenau and Monowitz). It is planned to publish a traditional, paper version in the form of a book/photo album and an electronic version (Ebook), as well as an application in the APPLE APP Store and Google Play App Store. "Auschwitz sub-camps: yesterday and today" will be a collection of information containing descriptions, archival photos, maps and photos in the present state. The book will be published in Polish and English. Planned completion date: sumer 2021.
