    Auschwitz survivor, Zdzisława Włodarczyk speaks for anniversary of liberation of KL Auschwitz

    On January 27th, 1945, Red Army soldiers opened the gates of the Auschwitz German camp. The extremely exhausted prisoners, of whom there were still about 7,000 – including half a thousand children – welcomed them as liberators. Established in 1940, Auschwitz and later Auschwitz II-Birkenau became a site for the extermination of at least one million people, mostly Jews, but also Poles, Roma, Soviet prisoners of war and people of other nationalities.
