Poland: Duda and Israeli Pres. Rivlin join thousands for march on Auschwitz

Polish President Andrzej Duda was joined by Israeli President Reuven Rivlin as they marched through the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp in southern Poland on Holocaust Remembrance Day, Thursday. Up to 12,000 joined the March of the Living from Auschwitz to Birkenau, an act of remembrance which has taken place for the past 30 years. This year march marks the 73rd anniversary of the end... Еще World War II and the liberation of Auschwitz by the Red Army in January 1945. Auschwitz-Birkenau was used as a death camp during the Second World War and is now a memorial museum. At least 1.1 million people, mostly Jews, were killed at the camp and more than 230,000 children were deported there during the Holocaust. Duda sparked controversy in February after signing an anti-defamation bill which effectively bans attributing Warsaw for crimes committed by Nazi Germany in order to 'protect Poland's good name.'
