The Holocaust in Croatia Damir Gamulin & Antun Sevšek
The exhibited interpretation of the Holocaust is based on a strong position toward the theme. The spatial contexts of the exhibition The Holocaust in Croatia was defined by an actual transit point in the camp system, the French Pavilion. The intentionally oversized display system was a metaphor for the railway with which the Jews were taken to Aushwitz, made from raw steel, whose physical and acoustic characteristics provide a heavy, dark and inescapable atmosphere. Like the victims of the organized crime of the Holocaust, visitors are forced to follow a single path through the narrative without the opportunity to change it. Although it was concieved specifically for the French pavilion, the exhibition is modular and can be adapted to other spaces.
