On the 76th Anniversary of the Liberation - A Message from Former Prisoners of the Auschwitz - Birkenau German Nazi Concentration and Death Camp

Last year, as in previous years, the Centre for Dialogue and Prayer in Oświęcim hosted the former prisoners who participated in the commemoration of the 75th anniversary of the liberation of the former camp Auschwitz-Birkenau. This year it is impossible due to the pandemic, so we have asked the survivors of Auschwitz to pass on their message to people in the world.

We would also like to invite you to share your reflections via the Internet / Facebook, which we will convey to former prisoners who spend a lot of time locked down in their homes because of the pandemic. WELCOME.

    Always focus on life and the other person.”
  • Janina Iwańska

    I wrote all of this to make the present generation aware that war is the greatest evil and if it does not kill, it will take away the value of life. For my generation, the war took away childhood, youth, and the best of mature years.

    Prisoner Message 149894
    Let the world and life in it be a refuge for all races of people and their creeds. The domination of man over man causes a lot of humiliation, discrimination, annihilation, enslavement and lack of humanity.
  • Hanna Ulatowska

    My legacy as a child survivor of Auschwitz and a researcher of war survivors of World War 2 has revealed the most important gifts of wisdom, of reconciliation, and empathy, instead of hate.”

    The Global Pandemic of the Covid19 virus casts a shadow over our annual Auschwitz Liberation Commemoration on January 27th 2021, the International Day of Commemoration and Honouring the Victims of Nazi Ideology.
  • Stefania Wernik

    I am addressing all nations of the world, all generations of these nations. No more war, no more fascism which brings death, genocide, crimes, slaughter and the loss of human dignity. The ideologies of that world are insidious, it was enough to believe in them and they happened, that’s how it was. Be vigilant and wise, don't let them take over you.
    Stefania Wernik born in Auschwitz-Birkenau, in the hell of the Nazi extermination."
  • Maria Wiercigroch

    What I would like to convey to humanity is a warning against selfishness and duplicity. I want people to see the person living next door as someone close to them. Respect and willingness to share goodness with another person must be instilled in small children, so that in the future there will not be a generation of lords of life and death.
  • Zdzisława Włodarczyk

    No more war and bad politics where there is hatred towards other people with different views.”
