"The Nazi German Auschwitz-Birkenau camp is a symbol of cruelty that does not fall under any definition. Evil had one source: the German Reich fed by the ideology of Nazism. We cannot allow the history of this crime to be falsified," Morawiecki tweeted on Monday. /Twitter

Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki has said the truth of Nazi German atrocities at the Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp must not be distorted. On Monday, Poland marked the 75th anniversary of the camp's liberation.

"The Nazi German Auschwitz-Birkenau camp is a symbol of cruelty that does not fall under any definition. Evil had one source: the German Reich fed by the ideology of Nazism. We cannot allow the history of this crime to be falsified," Morawiecki tweeted on Monday.

The Germans killed at least 1.1 million people at Auschwitz, mainly Jews, but also Poles, Roma and Soviet prisoners of war. The camp was liberated by the Red Army on January 27, 1945. In 1947, the camp site was declared a national memorial site.
