Estonian President Unacceptable Holocaust Denial
“We should tell schoolchildren about these horrors and explain what led to such terrible pages in the history of mankind”, she said. “This is a measure of our humanity and one of the guarantees that we can prevent the recurrence of these crimes”.
Kaljulayd added that "we must remember again and again our duty to resist any attempt to deny the Holocaust or to justify any crimes against humanity". As the Estonian president recalled, one of the first places where the horrors of the Holocaust were documented was the Klooga concentration camp located in Estonia.
On January 27, 1945, the Red Army liberated the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp, in which at that time a little more than 7 thousand prisoners remained, including several hundred children. According to various sources, between 1.5 and 2 million people of different nationalities, including about 15 thousand Soviet citizens, died in the camp.
