Formal meeting on the occasion of 72nd Anniversary of the Liberation of the Nazi German Concentration Camp in Auschwitz- Birkenau - Part I


Igor Gościński1



Introduction

This is the film recorded by Cracow Medical Society during the formal meeting on the occasion of the 72nd Anniversary of the Liberation of the Nazi German concentration camp in Auschwitz-Birkenau, with many honourable guests attending. In order to make it available to a wider international audience, we have split the recording into few parts, which will be published successively but with the English subtitles. This material is very important for future generations, also as a warning against the events that took place during and around World War II. Please also observe our earlier article in WJOMI about TLK [1, 2].
