The Ministry of Culture of The former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia will host the third meeting of the international steering committee in charge of coordinating the establishment of a renovated joint exhibit space within the ex-Yugoslav pavilion in the State Museum Auschwitz-Birkenau. The meeting will serve to define common approaches for the concept, themes, supporting documentation and design of the joint exhibit.

It will serve to agree on chronologies and timelines, define a data reference document on deportees to Auschwitz, determine a mapping of existing documentation, archives and materials, agree on supporting collections, texts and materials that could be used for the common exhibit space which will be divided in 4 themes: Time and Space; Victims; Perpetrators and Collaborators; and, Resistants. The meeting will also comprise a visit to the new Holocaust Memorial Centre for the Jews from the country, inaugurated in Skopje in March 2011
