Auschwitz death camp renamed

The United Nations world heritage committee has changed the
name it uses for the Auschwitz camp in Poland
to reflect the fact it was operated by Nazi Germany. (source).

It will now be known as “Auschwitz-Birkenau. German Nazi Concentration and
Extermination Camp (1940-1945),” after the Warsaw
government requested the change, Unesco said on Thursday.

The change came as Polish and German politicians continued a
bitter war of words over the legacy of the Nazi occupation of Poland.

Poland's prime
minister said ahead of European Union talks that Warsaw
deserved more voting rights because its population had been decimated by Nazi

More than one million people, mainly European Jews, were killed at Auschwitz
by German forces during the occupation. Birkenau was the neighboring camp and
the site of the main gas chambers and crematoriums.

Polish political prisoners, prisoners of war from the Soviet Union,
Gypsies, homosexuals, people with disabilities and prisoners of conscience or
religious faith also died at the camp.

It is obvious that the Poles can still see Hitler’s European
dream in the Constitution, and can see that the Europe
as proposed in the Constitution treaty will be a primarily German/French
dominated one. Millions died defeating Hitler’s European dream.

We must never let it
become a reality.

We must never forget.

We must never repeat the mistakes of the past.
