Seventy-two years ago today, Auschwitz-Birkenau, the largest Nazi concentration and death camp, was liberated by Soviet troops.

As International Holocaust Remembrance Day takes place across the world today, people of all nationalities will pay tribute to the estimated six million Jews, two million Romani people, 250,000 mentally and physically disabled, and 9,000 homosexual men murdered by the Nazi regime and its collaborators.
