On 27th January 1945 the Russian 60th Army liberated the KL (Koncentraction Lager) Auschwitz.

Only about seven thousands were found alive and bodies of many prisoners were found within the compound.

The Nazi Germans started closing down such death and concentration camps in the second half of 1944 to erase the evidence of their crimes, in view of the Russian advance towards the west.

The remaining prisoners were to work as slave laborers in Germany, many did not survive the death marches and transport.

Auchwitz witnessed the death of over 1 million people (mainly Jews) from Poland and Europe.
