Auschwitz Museum celebrating 70th anniversary of liberation with YouTube livestream

Today marks the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau, when Soviet troops marched into the Nazi death camp and freed its remaining survivors. By January 1945, the Nazi war machine had killed more than 1 million prisoners at the site, most of whom were Jews. The day has since become International Holocaust Remembrance Day, and the Auschwitz Museum holds a remembrance every year at the camp’s Death Gate to commemorate the liberation and those lost in the war. This year, YouTube is also helping to mark the end of the Holocaust by livestreaming the event online.

Google has already worked extensively with the Auschwitz Museum, digitizing images and records from the site along uploading media to make for an online museum. Today serves as an extension of those efforts, especially at a time when the number of the camp’s remaining survivors continues to fall. You can watch the ceremonies right now in the embed above.
