Seventy years after the liberation of Auschwitz, Holocaust survivors and world leaders gathered in Poland Tuesday for a commemoration ceremony to mark the date.
The commemoration at the notorious concentration camp in southern Poland where the Nazis killed at least 1.1 million people, mainly European Jews, may be the last major anniversary when survivors attend in numbers. The youngest are in their 70s.
Around 300 were expected to make the trip, down from 1,500 ten years ago.
They were joined by a host of dignitaries, including royalty, from Belgium and The Netherlands, and more than a dozen presidents and prime ministers from across the globe.
