Summary"In 2000, a libel suit argued before the Royal Courts of Justice in London, England successfully challenged the false assertion by Holocaust deniers that Auschwitz was not a killing facility. The Evidence Room is both a companion piece to and an elaboration of an exhibit, first presented at the 2016 Venice Architecture Biennale, based on the forensic interpretation of the blueprints of the Auschwitz crematoria and the expert witness testimony by Robert Jan van Pelt, a professor at the University of Waterloo School of Architecture, about the design and operation of those buildings as a killing facility." —Publisher
