OSWIECIM, POLAND - JANUARY 27, 2020: A remembrance ceremony for the Holocaust victims during events commemorating the 75th anniversary of liberation of the former Auschwitz concentration camp operated by Nazi Germany during WWII, by the Soviet Red Army. Over a million Jews, as well as Soviet and Polish prisoners, were killed in the camp's gas chambers to be burnt in crematoria. Auschwitz was liberated by the Soviet Red Army on 27 January 1945; in 1947, the Polish government founded the Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum on the site of the camp, which in 1979 was inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage Site List. In 2005, January 27 was named International Holocaust Remembrance Day by the General Assembly of the United Nations. Natalia Fedosenko/TASS
