Former concentration camp prisoner: “Fascism was defeated, but not destroyed”

28.01.2020, Auschwitz.

Fascism was not completely destroyed. A former prisoner of the Auschwitz concentration camp in Poland, Igor Malitsky, said this to journalists at an event dedicated to the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz by the Red Army on January 26.

He said that it is necessary to tell the younger generation about what happened in such camps, because “fascism was defeated, but not crushed or destroyed”.

He also spoke about his experiences while living in Auschwitz. The most terrible thing for him was that people were assigned numbers like cattle in the camp, and children had their teeth pulled out.

Events dedicated to the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz began on January 27. Representatives of 54 countries will attend these events, including top officials. Russian Ambassador to Poland Sergey Andreev will be present there.

About 4 million people were killed in the Auschwitz death camp. Soviet forces liberated it on January 27, 1945.
