The main celebration of the 74th anniversary of the liberation of the German Nazi concentration camp in Auschwitz was held in the building of the central sauna in the former Auschwitz II-Birkenau. It was attended by, inter alia, the former prisoners of the camp, the Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki and by the Deputy Prime Minister Beata Szydło.
The Prime Minister emphasized that the Polish State guards the truth that cannot be relativised in any manner.
The holocaust was not carried out by Nazis, but by Hitler's Germany. Hitler's Germany fed itself with the fascist ideology which is, until today, described in this way by all historians, however all the evil originated therefrom. We cannot forget about it, because otherwise relativization of evil takes place, said the Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki during the celebrations of the 74th anniversary of the liberation of the Nazi Auschwitz concentration camp.
Here, I would like to make the promise of memory of that time, declared the Head of Government.

The liberation of the camp took place on 27 January 1945 r. Thus each year on 27 January we celebrate the Day of Liberation of Auschwitz. And the United Nations appointed 27 January to be the International Day of Commemoration in Memory of the Victims of the Holocaust.
Until the moment of the liberation of the camp area by the Red Army, the Nazis murdered approximately 1.1 million people in Auschwitz, mostly Jews, but also Poles, Roma, Soviet prisoners of war and people of other nationalities. Today Auschwitz is for the world the symbol of holocaust and cruelty of World War II.
