It’s been 74 years since Red Army set Auschwitz-Birkenau free from the Nazis. The 27th of January is commemorated as the International day of Memory of the Victims of the Holocaust, to remind us the bestiality of fascism. It is estimated that about 6 million people – Jews, communists, homosexuals or black – were led to death, forced labor and tough torture in Auschwitz.
It is also a day to remember and understand that fascism is not another viewpoint, which has the right to join democratic elections, but the ideology who have killed everyone who was different, everyone who didn’t fit their sick, paranoiac requirements. And this is what fascism will do again and again if we allow it. Nowadays, when neo-nazis try to re-emerge in power, just the way Hitler managed to climb to the presidency, it is more important than ever to resist.
WFDY calls on all the democratic, progressive and peace-loving youth, to always remember what fascism really is and to join us in the anti-fascist struggle, for a world without racism, hate and exploitation.
