Liberation of Auschwitz, 75 years on – BBC News

The BBC News at Ten is live from southern Poland, on perhaps the most infamous site in Europe, the former Nazi death camp at Auschwitz. World leaders joined survivors here to keep alive the memory of the victims. 6 million people, mostly Jewish, were murdered by the Nazis, more than a million of them in the camp. 75 years ago today, the Soviet Army liberated Auschwitz, and it came to symbolise the horror of the Nazi regime. Today’s ceremony had at its heart the survivors, who urged the world never to forget the suffering here.

Reeta Chakrabarti is live at Auschwitz for the commemorations with a special report from our World Affairs correspondent John Simpson.
