Poland: 'Nazi killing machine wouldn't have prevailed without assistance' — Israeli president

Israeli President Reuven Rivlin said that «the Nazi killing machine would not have prevailed without any assistance,» during a visit to the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp in southern Poland on Holocaust Remembrance Day, Thursday. The Israeli president went on to say, «we remember those who were accomplices, those who stood and did nothing, those who saw the smoking chimneys, those who... Еще heard our screaming and did nothing.» Reuven Rivlin joined Polish President Andrzej Duda and some 12,000 others who took part in 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 of World War II and the liberation of Auschwitz by the Red Army in January 1945. Auschwitz-Birkenau was used as a death camp during WWII 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 a bill which effectively bans attributing any Polish state complicity in crimes committed by Nazi Germany.
