A former Auschwitz inmate will be able to seek justice before a Polish court over a German website's use of the term "Polish death camp" in a 2017 report on his sister's death in the World War II Treblinka Nazi extermination camp in German-occupied Poland.
‘The Girl Scouts from Ravensbrück’ by author Anna Kwiatkowska-Bieda describes how, despite so many adversities, the threat of extermination and undergoing appalling experiments, a group of Polish female political prisoners formed the clandestine ‘Mury’ Scout Troop which operated in secret until the camp was liberated.
German prosecutors said that the 95-year-old who has not been named was a stenographer and a secretary to the commander of Stutthof concentration camp in what was then Nazi-occupied Poland.
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 T-shirt, which shows a skull and crossbones alongside the ‘Camp Auschwitz’ slogan, was listed for sale on Etsy’s marketplace and is similar to one worn by a rioter who stormed the Capitol in Washington D.C. last week.
The Auschwitz Museum in southern Poland will remain closed to visitors until January 31 owing to the Covid-19 pandemic, the museum announced on Tuesday.
Written by a Dutch Jew, the letter detailed the murder of his family at the Sobibór death camp.
It’s hoped that the state-of-the-art exhibition will raise awareness of this largely forgotten Nazi killing facility once Covid restrictions are lifted.

The Germans planned to turn Auschwitz into a model Nazi town, and in doing so planted trees.
