    National Remembrance Day for the Victims of the German Nazi Concentration Camps and Death Camps [VIDEO]

    Today, we commemorate National Remembrance Day for the Victims of the German Nazi Concentration Camps and Death Camps. 82 years ago, the first transport with 728 Polish prisoners arrived at the Auschwitz concentration camp.

     

    On June 14 in 1940 there was the first mass transport of Poles to KL Auschwitz. 

     

    “At the beginning of World War II, the national-socialist extermination was directed primarily against the elites of the Polish nation. As a result, on 14 June 1940, the Germans sent the first transport of prisoners to KL Auschwitz. They were given numbers from 31 to 758. Among the prisoners there was a large group of people who had tried to get through to the newly formed National Polish Forces in France,” writes the Institute of National Remembrance. 

     

    Adolf Hitler’s reign was marked by terror and an unprecedented dimension of systemic crimes. Between 1933 and 1945, during the period of Nazi power in Germany and the horrors of the Second World War, a system of German concentration and death camps was in operation. Although it is currently impossible to estimate precisely the number of people who died directly in these extermination centres, it is estimated that the number may be as high as 10 million.
