Rome (JTA) — Plans to
update, restore and reor-
ganize the museum and
monuments at the site of the
Auschwitz.Birkenau death
camp complex are well
under way but proceeding
slowly because of lack of
funds, according to a rank-
ing museum official.
But the Polish govern-
ment-run museum has al-
ready made major changes
in approach, if not in
physical structure, accor-
ding to Franciszek Piper, di-
rector of the museum's
historical department.
Since the end of Commu-
nist rule, the museum has
been emphasizing that Jews
were the primary victims at
the Nazi death camp, Mr.
Piper said in an interview
here.
The Communists depicted
Jews as but one of many na-
tionalities to die at
Auschwitz, but that has
been changed, he said.
"Despite the fact that they
were citizens of various diff-
erent countries, they were in
Auschwitz because they
were Jews," he said.
"Nov, in all our publica-
tions, the proper data on the
nationalities of the victims
and the fact that most of the
victims were Jews is pre-
sented," said Mr. Piper, who
was in Rome this week for
the opening of an exhibition
on Auschwitz.
He said the acknowl-
edgement of Auschwitz as
primarily a Jewish tragedy
began when an interna-
tional commission to reor-
ganize the museum was es-
tablished after the fall of
Communism in Poland two
years ago.
Mr. Piper said an introduc-
tory film made by the Red
Army has been changed to
reflect the new emphasis,
though not yet in all lang-
uages. "That is a technical
problem," he said.
In the museum itself,
"what we can change and
are changing are the com-
mentaries and interpreta-
tion that explain the items
and photographs on
display," he said.
But Mr. Piper said to "do
everything that needs to be
done, we need $42 million."
Explaining that until now,
the Polish government has
been solely responsible for
the museum's financing, Mr.
Piper said he hoped private
foundations and possibly
other governments could
help, considering the inter-
national dimensions of
Auschwitz and the financial
crisis affecting Poland.
