Twisted Priorities Revealed During Auschwitz Liberation Anniversary

Crystal clear proof that we are living in a clown world during Holocaust Remembrance Day.

Auschwitz-Birkenau survivors and other mourners commemorated the 78th anniversary Friday of the Nazi German death camp’s liberation, some expressing horror that war has again shattered peace in Europe and the lesson of Never Again is being forgotten.

The former concentration and extermination camp is located in the town of Oświęcim in southern Poland, which was under the occupation of German forces during World War II and became a place of systematic murder of Jews, Poles, Soviet prisoners of war, Roma and others targeted for elimination by Adolf Hitler and his henchmen.

In all, some 1.1 million people were killed at the vast complex before it was liberated by Soviet troops on Jan. 27, 1945.
Today the site, with its barracks, barbed wire and ruins of gas chambers, stands as one of the world’s most recognized symbols of evil and a site of pilgrimage for millions.

Jewish and Christian prayers for the dead were recited at the memorial site, which lies only 300 kilometers (185 miles) from Ukraine, where Russian aggression is creating death and destruction — a conflict on the minds of many this year.

The actual liberators of Auschwitz, Russia, are banned by Poland from participating in the concentration camp’s liberation anniversary while the guests of honor are Banderites (i.e. Ukrainian Nazis) who aided Nazi Germany with the Holocaust. Small wonder that the head of Russia’s upper house of parliament, Valentina Matvienka, called Poland’s non-invitation a cynical move.
