WARNING! GRAPHIC IMAGES: Seventy-eight years ago this week, Germans carried out one of the most shocking, depraved and grotesque incidents of the Holocaust: they took away all the children aged under 10 in the Łódź Ghetto and murdered them.
The videos, dubbed by some critics as “trauma porn”, feature teenagers pretending to be in heaven and acting out Holocaust scenes. In a statement, the Auschwitz-Birkenau Museum said the videos were “dangerously close or are already beyond the border of trivialisation of history and being disrespectful to the victims.”
Some 150 Jewish gravestones have been unearthed during construction work in the south-eastern Polish town of Leżajsk.
The grim discovery by construction workers in the town of Leżajsk, southern Poland, has been described as one of the largest in recent times, with many of the ‘matzevot’ retaining their original colours and painted lettering.
"We are honouring the fallen in this unequal fight and paying homage to all Holocaust victims," the Polish prime minister wrote in a letter read out during observances of the 77th anniversary of a prisoner revolt at the Treblinka Nazi death camp on Sunday.
Evelyn Fine plans to lay two stolpersteine, brass-faced cobblestones that contain the name, date of birth and, when available, the date and location of death and location of death, outside the old family home which still stands in Grajewo in memory of her great-grandparents who lived there.
The Polish Foreign Ministry reacting to the US Department of State's report under the JUST Act, said that the opinion on the property restitution process in Poland differs in some points from Poland's assessment of the issue.
Poland, among other countries, has been listed in the State Department's annual Act 447 report for not having yet enacted full legislation on domestic property restitution or Holocaust-related confiscation.
As part of the #NoDenyingIt campaign by prominent Holocaust survivors, Auschwitz survivor Marian Turski wrote an open letter in Germany’s Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung urging Facebook boss Mark Zuckerberg to remove Holocaust-denying groups, pages and posts as hate speech.
The camp became known to the world owing to the film Schindler’s List.
