About this itemThe Krzyż Oświęcimski (AUSCHWITZ CROSS) was instituted on March 14, 1985, primarily a Polish decoration, awarded to honour the inmates of German concentration camps, and not only those interned in Auschwitz (the Polish name of Auschwitz is Oświęcim). Krzyż Oświęcimski was generally awarded to Poles, but was also awarded to foreigners in very special cases. It could also be awarded posthumously. It ceased to be awarded in 1999. An exception was made in the case of Greta Ferusic, who was awarded the last cross under special circumstances in February 2004.
This is a scarce guaranteed original AUSCHWITZ CROSS and not one of the many fakes found on eBay these days, it was made by the Warsaw National Mint the official Polish Government authorized manufacturer for all Polish decorations.
50th ANNIVERSARY LIBERATION AUSCHWITZ SURVIVOR MEDAL designed by Professor Jozef Stanski and made by the Warsaw state mint in 1995.
This heavy bronze medal measures a large 80mm x 70mm. It comes in original award box and with award booklet.
This medal shows a Rose, barbed wire which surrounded the death camp and the Train track which transported millions of Jews to the Gas chamber, symbolizing the millions of innocent Men, Women and Children slaughtered by the NAZI Regime.
