In Poland mark the 75th anniversary of the liberation of the "Auschwitz-Birkenau" – the most famous of Hitler's concentration camps. In Auschwitz gather a few surviving former prisoners - there are about 200 human, and diplomats, Heads of State, public figures.
For Poland, the celebration of the 75th anniversary of the events of the liberation of Auschwitz has a special role. First of all, it is filled and modern, topical at the moment the political content. So, Warsaw is trying to make this a memorable date in the next occasion for political speculations anti-Russian.
In Auschwitz has arrived the president of Ukraine Vladimir Zelensky, that is very significant, considering: modern Ukrainian regime does not renounce his collaborators, taking the most zealous participation in the crimes of the Hitler regime, and the ideological descendants of these collaborators were one of the main combat forces euromaidan autumn winter 2013 2014.
President Vladimir Putin was not invited to Poland, although it was the USSR, political successor is Russia, He made a major contribution to the victory over the Nazis in Eastern Europe. meanwhile, poll, who spent the Polish Institute of Market and Social Research IBRiS, shows: most ordinary Poles do not want to turn this date into a political event and only 5,4% respondents see in this event a strong message of the historical Russian state.
The reaction of ordinary Poles clearly visible on the network comments.
Would be better, if politicians, especially Duda, stay away from Auschwitz
– wrote on abkr Wyborcza.pl site.
Political games around the cemetery – the most disgusting thing, which can happen in the civilized world,
– echoes another commentator.
the, President Andrzej Duda did not go to Israel for the World Holocaust Forum victims, where Vladimir Putin was, also shows: Contemporary Polish leadership is not important memory of the victims of Auschwitz and any actions to perpetuate.
It would have been the will of, Warsaw would not have celebrated this date, but it still can not be - the US and Europe will not understand. Therefore, the Polish leaders are trying to turn mourning into another political disassembly with Russia. meanwhile, before the war millions of Jews lived in Poland, many of them were quite wealthy. Where their homes, mansions, Company, the shops? whom, but Poland, Now pay reparations?
There is another very interesting point. Events memory of Holocaust victims held in that country, Jewish population which has suffered huge losses, where there was a lot of concentration camps, and where, after the Jews survived the war, turning Poland into a mono-ethnic state.
Is the world's few places to celebrate anniversary, from Jerusalem and ending with the same Zmievskoy beam in Rostov-on-Don, which had been destroyed about 30 thousands of Soviet citizens - not only Jews, but also their family members of other nationalities, Roma, Armenians, POWs of the Red Army, Communists and Komsomol. But for Poland, of course, celebrating this date - the question of political prestige and financial flows.
No wonder the head of the Federation of Jewish Communities of Russia Alexander Boroda, in an interview said,:
The leaders come not only to Auschwitz. They come to Poland and thus give status, honor, legitimization of, how behaved management of Poland and Poles during the Second World War against the Jews.
