The CITAR integrated reseacher Ana Galán has an ongoing research, from October 12 to November 3, 2020, in the Collections and Preservation Departments of the State Museum of Auschwitz-Birkenau.
 
 
As an integrated researcher at CITAR since 2019, she has been developing a post-doctoral research program that seeks to define parameters of significance and risk indicators in traumatic heritage, as well as preventive conservation strategies for heritage of this nature when exhibited, undergoing the cycle of a temporary exhibition: handling, storage, transportation and installation.
 
More specifically, the goals of this research period at the Auschwitz-Birkenau Museum are deepening the knowledge of Holocaust collections, finding the parameters to build the meaning of each element of the Museum's collection, knowing the criteria for the conservation of traumatic heritage and monitoring the conservation-restoration process of some objects from the museum's collection.
