Statement by Permanent Representative of the Russian Federation to the UN Office in Geneva H.E.Mr. Gennady Gatilov at the ceremony on the occasion of the 75-th anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp January 27, Geneva

On January 27, 1945 Soviet soldiers liberated the prisoners of Auschwitz concentration camp. By decision of the United Nations this day has become an eternal reminder of the atrocities committed by the Nazis and their heinous crimes that cannot be justified or forgiven. This day has embodied our common memory and grief. According to the documents of the Nuremberg Tribunal, the Nazi machine of extermination killed 6 million Jews. Among them were hundreds of thousands of Soviet citizens. 3 million Soviet prisoners of war perished in extermination camps. Today we pay tribute to the courage of those who survived the horrors of violence and humiliating forced labor, those who remained unbroken.
