As the Soviet Army approached Auschwitz the SS tried to evacuate

the Auschwitz camps in a death march to Gross Rosen. They also blew

up the gas chambers and crematoria. Auschwitz I, II and III were

liberated by the Soviet Army on 27 January 1945, which has since

become Holocaust Remembrance Day.
