    The man who liberated Auschwitz

    A lot has been reported these days about the liberation of the Auschwitz concentration and extermination camp.

    At least in the media there is next to nothing to be read about the liberator of Auschwitz.

    Auschwitz camp was liberated by a raiding party from the 106th Rifle Brigade, which was part of the 100th Infantry Division of the 1st Ukrainian Front.

    The commander of this raiding party was Captain Anatolij Pavlovich Shapiro, who broke down the gate at exactly 9 a.m. on January 27, 1945 and was the first Red Army soldier to enter the camp while his soldiers defused the German mines buried in front of the main entrance to the camp…:

    Shapiro, born on January 18, 1913 (Common Era) in Constantiograd (Poltava Oblast, Ukraine), was himself a Jew.

    A memorial today commemorates Shapiro's deed on the site of the former death camp.

    After the war he was demobilized and worked as a civil engineer on the construction of various hydropower plants in the Soviet Union. For his work he received the State Prize of the Soviet Union.

    Because of the increasing anti-Semitism in Russia, Shapiro emigrated to the USA in 1992, where he lived in New York and Coney Island. Shapiro died on October 8, 2005 in New York, where he is also buried ...:

    The most dramatic sentence I heard two days ago on a french TV . An old lady was asked; what do you recall of beiing a young girl deported in a camp ( she was 5 - 6 years old ) . What game do you remember playing ? If any !
    .... A kind of competition, with another girl of my age
    " .... we had chosen each of us 1 pile of bodies in front of us ... we counted the number of feet ... the highest count designed the winner ... "
    She stopped speaking, choking on her own words and refused to speak about games children played again .
    But a lot about everything else seen through the eyes of her childhood .
