During the Second World War, more than 11 million people were tortured in death camps, two million of whom were children. The OPPOSITION BLOC calls on Ukrainians to observe a minute of silence in memory of the victims of Nazi concentration camps,” Oleksandr Dolzhenkov, MP from the OPPOSITION BLOC, said from the parliamentary rostrum.
“April 11 is a memorable date in the history of the world community. On that day 74 years ago, on April 11, 1945, the prisoners of Buchenwald were liberated. Buchenwald is one of the largest and most cruel places during the existence of the Third Reich. Dachau, Sachsenhausen, Mauthausen, Auschwitz-Birkenau, Majdanek, Syretsky camp is not a complete list of the 11,000 camps, ghettos and prisons that the Nazis created for the destruction of representatives of other nationalities,” the MP said.
According to Oleksandr Dolzhenkov, the current authorities are trying to rewrite the history of the Great Patriotic War and destroy the memory of the victory of the Soviet soldiers, who expelled the Nazis from Ukraine and obtained the Great Victory.
“Under no circumstances we will allow minimizing the importance and role of the veterans of the Red Army who liberated concentration camp prisoners. On this day, Ukraine, together with the entire international community, bows low to those who lived to the moment of liberation, who stood the test of war. We honor the memory of those who did not live to this day. The OPPOSITION BLOC calls upon all indifferent to observe a minute of silence in memory of the victims of Nazi concentration camps, who did not wait for liberation, becoming a victim of the Nazi regime,” the oppositionist noted.
