Auschwitz survivors mark 76th anniversary
United Nations designated Jan. 27 as International Holocaust Remembrance Day, an acknowledgement of Auschwitz’s iconic status..
Victims at Auschwitz were among 6million Jews murdered by Adolf Hitler's forces between 1941 and 1945
In less than three months in the summer of 1944, nearly 400,000 Hungarian Jews were murdered
More than 1.1 million people were murdered by the German Nazis and their henchmen at Auschwitz, the most notorious site in a network of camps and ghettos aimed at the destruction of Europe’s Jews. The vast majority of those killed at Auschwitz were Jews, but others, including Poles, Roma and Soviet prisoners of war, were also killed in large numbers.
