Against the backdrop of the liberation of the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp by the Soviet Red Army 75-years ago, the Volkswagen Group commemorates the victims of forced labor, persecution and racial fanaticism during the period of National Socialism, with a minute’s silence and wreath-laying ceremony in front of the memorial stone at the Wolfsburg plant on International Holocaust Remembrance Day on January 27, 2020.
“Volkswagen and the International Auschwitz Committee have enjoyed a unique collaboration for 32-years. We want to keep the memory of the atrocities and suffering alive. That is why the preservation and care of the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial is extremely important to us. After all, people should continue to see what Auschwitz was like in the future,” said Volkswagen Group Board Member for Human Resources, Gunnar Kilian.
