The online events will include testimony from survivors as well as a guided virtual tour of the Auschwitz Memorial,"aimed at enhancing the educational value for visitors from around the globe," according to Sawicki.Auschwitz, also known as Auschwitz-Birkenau, was a complex of over 40 concentration and death camps run by Nazi Germany in occupied Poland amid the Holocaust during World War II. It was the largest of the Nazi concentration camps and extermination centers. More than 1.1 million men, women and children lost their lives there, mainly Jews, according to information on the Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum's website.

In January 1945, as Soviet Russia advanced deeper into Nazi-occupied Poland toward the end of the war, Nazi officers organized a forced evacuation of the Auschwitz prisoners. Almost 9,000 prisoners, most of whom were sick or suffering from exhaustion, were deemed unfit to join the death march to Germany. The Nazis intended to kill them all as part of attempts to destroy the evidence of their crimes at Auschwitz, but only managed to murder about 700 Jewish prisoners between the departure of the final evacuation column and the arrival of Soviet forces.
Soviet troops entered Auschwitz on Jan. 27, 1945, a day now commemorated as International Holocaust Remembrance Day, and liberated more than 7,000 survivors, according to the museum's website. Read more: ABC News »

Beware of phony Auschwitz survivors. All the real survivors have been documented on YouTube. It is evil- there should be consequences for starting unfounded conspiracy theories. gordongekko369 LOL , from Bill Gates mouth I can make 20/1 on vaccines turns 10 billion into 200 billion and is buying up all the farmland over the US
BillGates Just say, 'I want to profit from the pharmaceutical industry. In the process, I will support those who grant an easy, peaceful end to the purposeless existence of multitudes. To that end, I will employ developments in AI and electronic surveillance.' Thanks.👍🙂 all the people who took covid19 cell therapy are all mice for bill gate's experiments !!!! BRAVO !!!
Bill Gates is so manipulative.conspiracy theories?No! There are enough facts supporting their claims. Gates suggestion to WHO and nations to lockdown worldwide has wrecked the economies of the world and millions of lives for a viruswith less than 1% death rate. thisvideobot BlackRock owned by a Jewish family and the Jews are called guardians of the Vatican city no surprise there only God can save us from these people
Bill you do own shares in Pfizer and Moderna companies that have been making the vaccines, so you have been profiting !!!! “Minimized this” = censored No one talking trash about Bezo taking advantage of tax breaks and expanding Amazon. Or Donald Trump investing in pharmaceutical companies like Pfizer. But yeah Bill Gates is the bad guy! Ignorance at its finest next morons will say the election was stolen by Biden.
Hording that amount of wealth when he could be doing so much more to help the poor right here in the United States is evil too. Bill you and your associates are all evils, for killing innocent people all over the world People knew that you're behind this epidemic because you've talk about it years ago in 2015, how did you know that there will come a time when this virus will be killing people. Know it or not fell is were you will abide in for ever.
Doesn't Bill Gates have more money than there is dirt on earth?! Isn't Bill Gates also known for serving the health needs of MILLIONS OF PEOPLE ACROSS THE GLOBE?! 🌎 No one, with maybe the exception of Dr Fauci, has done more to eradicate disease in the world than Bill Gates. There is a theory, which explains a context between early childhood experiences and the enemy picture of Bill Gates in times of pandemic, which are embossed of uncertainty, passed out, fear. The only choice for some people is the decision between getting a depression or fight him
This man is evil He talks like him and Fauci are a team...Fauci is a doctor...and has his claws on many virus stuff that we don't know about..Microsoft Bill is a business guy, who openly said he invested in the vaccine..and making profit now... I know this is probably a random place to promote this but I've been battling cancer for the last 4 years and my condition is now worsening and has spread to my bones & need help to get treatment. if you could plz donate it would be greatly appreciated‼️
Antirust lawsuits on this man many years ago. We are supposed to believe he has turned a new leaf? His interests are not of that of the people. Yes that is evil but it’s so very true I dk that you can do anything explanation or otherwise. These people are brainwashed into a self indulgent sad dystopian world. They throw fits to emboldened their cause as a decoy to the message of help/accountability. SM must work with the government to weed this out
Look at this man when he speaks. His body posture. His constant fidgeting. You truly believe this man is all about the truth? Listen to his word. “How SHOULD we have minimized this?” ... Shame on those spreading lies about Mr. Gates. Woe to those who call good evil Body language speaks volumes. Hi BillGates I need support for my education. I’m hoping to get a surprise email from you . Derrickkbotwegmail.com
gordongekko369 Yes, they are evil and too many seemingly decent Americans are falling prey to this evil within their ranks. It disgusts me more each day! No, actually profiting is evil. All that profit should have gone to workers forced out of jobs, this attack on the destitute shows the real evil That’s guy is pure evil!
Yeah he’s just doing it for fun. Gee you think HA! HA! The Conspirator's Are 'SuperStupid!' This Guy Has Plenty Of Money! They Shoulde Target Trump! He Neede's Money! 'Author Don Johnson!' حیه وان به تمام معنا اما حیف حیوان ،،، gordongekko369 Just here for the comments 👀 Good sees good. I thank you for everything. melindagates BillGates
gordongekko369 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man Soweth, that shall he also reap.—Galatians 6:7 What I wouldn't give to live in a country where people once again felt shame. Our citizens would use that list a a badge of honor and be able to raise money from it.
