0 1

About 20 Holocaust survivors solemnly gathered to mark the 79th anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz-Birkenau camp during World War II in a ceremony in Poland on Saturday.

The approximately 20 survivors from surrounding Nazi concentration camps gathered to lay wreaths and flowers and to light candles at the Death Wall in Auschwitz, where the Nazis executed thousands of inmates.

Later, the group, along with state officials, gathered to memorialize the camp’s 1.1 million camp victims.

The group gathered by a brick women’s barracks at the former concentration camp and lit candles and prayed for the victims.

Halina Birenbaum, a 94-year-old survivor, spoke during the memorization beside barrack 27, where she spent part of August 1943 until the forced evacuation of camp inmates on foot on Jan. 18, 1945.

She said the suffering and tragedy of people from the Oct. 7 Hamas attack on Israel was ‘painful’ for her and an extension of her Auschwitz experience.
