200 survivors mark 75 years since Auschwitz liberation

Survivors of the Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp have marked the 75th anniversary of its liberation – returning to the place where they lost entire families.

Around 200 people who witnessed the atrocities of the Holocaust attended the commemoration in southern Poland – many of them elderly Jews and non-Jews who travelled from Israel, the US, Australia, Peru, Russia and elsewhere.

Together, they prayed and wept – and warned about the ominous growth of antisemitism and hatred in the world.
