To commemorate Holocaust Remembrance Day on the 76th anniversary of the liberation of the Nazi German death camp Auschwitz, a virtual ceremony was held due to coronavirus restrictions.
The mayor of Warsaw has led a memorial service at the city's Warsaw Ghetto Uprising monument for the millions of people who died during the Holocaust.
Once asked to draw the view from her bedroom window for homework, Anna Odi couldn’t decide whether to draw the crematorium or the gallows where Auschwitz commandant Rudolf Hoess was executed. She told TFN: “I think I am a hostage to the stories of people who experienced this hell. I am continuing what my parents started, to be a witness. Like my parents, I owe it to the victims.”
Mateusz Morawiecki, the prime minister, has marked International Holocaust Remembrance day by saying the memory of the Holocaust’s victims is an important part of the Polish identity.
