On January 27 the world will be listening to the voice of the Auschwitz Survivors

On January 27, 2020, we will commemorate the 75th anniversary of the liberation of the German Nazi Auschwitz concentration and extermination camp. Although the anniversary will be symbolically commemorated in different places in the world, the main event will take place at the authentic Memorial Site. The voice of Survivors and their message for the contemporary world will sound from this place, from the gate of the former Auschwitz II-Birkenau.
