Today, as part of world observances of the 76th anniversary of the liberation of the Nazi German death camp in Auschwitz, we remember the millions of Jews and others killed during the Holocaust. On 27 January 1945, Soviet forces liberated Auschwitz-Birkenau. An estimated 1.1 million were murdered in the camp. Listen to the accounts of the twin children who were subjected to medical experiments by Dr. Joseph Mengele.
Holocaust Remembrance day is an international memorial day on January 27 that commemorates the victims of the Holocaust, the genocide of European Jews by NAZI Germany, between 1941 and 1945. January 27th was chosen to commemorate the date that Auschwitz concentration camp was liberated by the Red Army in 1945.
