During the Second World War, in the Polish city of Auschwitz, German troops created the first Auschwitz concentration camp. In it, the Nazis killed 1.4 million people, about 1.1 million of whom were Jews. Now on the site of the death camp is a museum.
The camp’s liberation day is set by the UN as International Holocaust Remembrance Day.
