held this year and he offered russia as the host country to deal with these kind of issues and make sure that such horrendous atrocities do not happen again and use whatever the scheme blown them 1st of all it was. the soviet people who ended the barbaric plans of the nazis as it's been already mentioned here they protected their own land and liberated europe from naziism we paid for this with the price that has never come in the worst nightmares of any nation 27000000 people killed we will never forget this. but despite a 2nd says there are those who do not see the soviet union as a liberator in a somewhat damning opinion a piece of the polish prime minister say that russia was not a liberator but had actually condoned and assisted nazi germany now the polish president declined his invitation to attend the ceremony because he was not afforded the opportunity to speak likewise the russian president and others the official organizer you have a shame say that he had been asked to speak at
4:07 pm
a separate event the russian ministry of foreign affairs has come up quite strongly against the canes made by the polish media is saying that they are essentially rewriting history and that it's a known fact that russia was the army in the country responsible for liberation both auschwitz and poland and the israeli foreign minister agrees i want to personally thank you for the fact that the red army freetown schmidt's and helped in the victory over the nazis because my mother was one of those detained and was liberated by the red army relatives of those liberated from the camp know who freed them the israeli president has said that the history of the 2nd world war and the holocaust should be lifted historians one moring statistic to come forward is the fact that a large number of youngsters have heard seen the show or know very little about the 2nd world war auschwitz and the holocaust caught up with it in here in israel who
4:08 pm
are trying to change that from the ashes of the auschwitz concentration camp emerged to woods never again. through the generations as warning in a few days when it comes from members day will be commemorated around the world the tragedy of $6000000.00 jews who were tortured gassed and burnt in concentration camps will be remembered but for how much longer according to recent reports as many as 66 percent of millennial cannot identify auschwitz and almost hoffa cannot even name one concentration. some don't even know what the holocaust was these be multiple cases of people disrespecting concentration camps with a sophie's something that's all people named and shamed by the controversial your look aust project increasing needs falling on the younger generation to make sure the atrocities of the holocaust are not forgotten like it was going over its whose grandfather was a survivor outreach by recent studies showing the ignorance of 1000000 meals he set up a project called humans of the holocaust and what i'm trying to do this project is
4:09 pm
actually you know to their own form and to better educate people about what happened in the holocaust and i'm trying to do it in a different angle trying to because we're speaking about me or anyone else you know today you have twitter and you have instagram and you have tick tock and you have so much information flow and you have to get the attention of the young generation humans of the holocaust is a project that tells the stories of survivors and the children they speak about the years in camps and how they lived with this experience off towards some young people have come up with unusual ways of remembering the relatives my grandfather was. a hero for me he was a very very big part in my life from when i was a baby i asked him before i did that he asked why why you are there like you want to do number of holocaust in your head and i thought him.
4:10 pm
i want to keep the story alive to tell my kids to tell my grandkids they could move it's wants to expand his project with more human stories so the would we remember and never forget i would you for example add there is a holocaust survivor named google like you know he told me that the only thing that actually kept him going while he was in the holocaust was a sense of humor and he suggested that we will take a speech or holding a you know a boom in the shape of the you will badge the jews were forced to put on their sleeves. during the holocaust and in the beginning i wasn't sure that this is exactly the picture that i want to portray you know in this exhibition that when we took the picture and when he actually you know when he actually embraced and he was so happy he had the this huge smile these face and you know everything connected because his message is that is no matter what is happening actually in your life if you will to use your sense of humor you will find the resilience to actually you
4:11 pm
know to keep forward i'm sure when stories that people will be able to actually to relate to and my hope is that you know the people you know whether people see that exhibition they will do their own research and it will try to figure out why the holocaust happened and what are the lessons that we're all supposed to learn. from you know problem for the history never again i'm running cool during which only time will tell. over the poignant report well on monday poland will commemorate the 75th anniversary of the liberation of the ice which death camp the following is a story of a man who survived the horrors there. was actually born in the concentration camp among which are survive along with his mother we spoke with him about the liberation of us which. your government will give it people tell us but there was no liberation they say so if there was no red army then there wouldn't be me or
4:12 pm
other prisoners or my mother i have never questioned the merits of these soldiers i have always been grateful the prime minister and the president criticized the red army equally it was the same under the previous authorities no viewed mitt there was a liberation of auschwitz but at the same time they say there was no liberation of war so recall that the 2nd occupation. was liberated but that was so and other cities were not i don't know maybe the americans liberated them. we discussed the issue of shifting perceptions of the 2nd world war with a number of observers here is what they shared with us this is a classic case of distortion of history if you try and deny the not only the fact that those who read ot me liberated auschwitz but the incredibly enormous role played by the red army in the defeat of nazi is. the other hand you can
4:13 pm
understand why people who were liberated from that seize but later had to had to endure a soviet system don't feel that they were really liberated there was one person whose response of world war 2 and that out of hitler there's one country that responsible world war 2 and that's not the germany it's one of those few cases in history where the war didn't take accidentally it wasn't a mistake it's one of the clearest cases of good versus evil but we have a situation in the world frankly we're facts don't seem to matter anymore people are rewriting facts just to fit their particular narrative and we find that particularly among nationalists the soviet people bled more than anyone else during world war 2 the soviets gave up more in terms of men fighting and civilians who died than any other country during world war 2 and if it wasn't for the soviet union i have serious doubts whether had a lot of been defeated and i don't think anyone can really question that yes the united states was also of course key and it wasn't for the united states is
4:14 pm
industrial might the soviet union might not have hung on during the war but the united states provided the industry invited soldiers to obviously many americans were killed but the united states provided the industry the planes the tanks etc in the soviet union bled and fought and bled and defeated the nazis on the battlefield . and we moved on to more world news this hour a russian computer programmer accused by the us of laundering billions of dollars in bitcoin. disappeared in greece while in custody is lawyers claim he was on lawfully taken from a hospital where he was being treated after being in hunger strike for 35 days his lawyer told us what occurred. alexander disappeared today he was taken by police forces who ordered the doctors to release him even though he was exhausted and on the 35 day hunger strike as his lawyer i assure
4:15 pm
you that they had no right to take him because today's decision by the supreme court was not executable i have been in contact with all competent greek authorities today and until 930 nobody knew where alexander was it was confirmed to me by my french call that alexander vinick is already in france in a hospital they will try to interrogate him at this state where he has been barred from communicating with me since yesterday night his rights are being violated i'm sure his very afraid and terrorized by this procedure because he had absolutely no information on what happened there has been a court decision which was available after 4 o'clock but this is not a decision which allows extradition however it is proven that he was moved to
4:16 pm
france before even this decision was issued this is a non lawful procedure against a human being who is entitle to his rights and dignity. just some dark road to all this 40 year old alexander of elect was arrested in 2017 the u.s. accuses him of finding a digital a currency exchange that facilitated cyber crime and drug dealing he's also wanted in france which claims he carried out cyber ford from his prison cell moscow wants to question him as well and similar charges within the last few hours greece approved his extradition to all 3 countries. or before the latest ruling russia's foreign minister criticized the greek authorities for refusing to examine the evidence presented by moscow and earlier this month alexander fenech claimed he had been tortured while in greece they're trying to use torture and psychological
4:17 pm
pressure to break me they do not allow me to breathe fresh air the last time they let me out for a walk for a few minutes was on new year's eve i am a man without rights illegally imprisoned in greece for 30 months without charges they want to destroy me from my knowledge they want my head on the block just because of what i know and my technological abilities. alexander the next lawyer again talked us through the next stages in defending her client. i am now in contact with my french court liquids already at the hospital where alexander has been transferred all year in paris i have already filed a letter with the judges of investigation in order not to examine him in these conditions during the night while he's exhausted and he doesn't know what's happening because i had no time to even inform him of the court decision masking therefore with my letter the judges to respect human rights law and respect
4:18 pm
procedure give postponement of his hearing and not did not hear him in this frail condition and of course we have already made an appeal to the united nations working group against arbitrary this detention we are still waiting for them to take action it's very important that alexander be protected and we will exhaust and the legal procedure and anything that we can do to protect this individual because when alexander's rights are violated everybody's rights are violated. another story we're closely following today alone mark ruling by the united nations has stated the climate refugees cannot be sent home from countries they're seeking asylum in if their lives are in danger the judgment sets a precedent for future event the committees of give you die we die response national and international efforts the a fact of climate change you receiving steeds meet expose individuals to
4:19 pm
a violation of their rights thereby triggering dinara full my obligations of sending steitz the case was brought by an islander from caribbean sea in the pacific ocean who claimed he was endangered juicer rising sea levels he applied for asylum in new zealand but was rejected you also failed at the un but the case set a precedent that all the. could apply this because the world body ruled that climate crisis could expose individuals to a violation of their rights not states could not legally send refugees back to their countries of origin germany's interior ministry spoke out against that particular parts of the un ruling most studies suggest environmental change is a trigger but not the sole cause of migration decisions political commentator david former leader of the wales green party or salafi the issues here. i think the u.n. ruling is a good one we're going to see millions and millions of people maybe 300000000
4:20 pm
people. fleeing climate change where the through starvation or drought storm flood to certification and we have to be ready for it we have to start talking about this here's the facts on this one 1st of all this is a normal legal decision by the un human rights commission it's just another way till essential you exploit the un's puppet to advance open borders and you know even at the most obvious level i can't believe anyone swallows this kind of go this is not restricted to the developing broke world we have most of our cities i think there are something like 32 of the world's greatest cities largest cities are likely to be under water london new york it doesn't make any sense to. look at this in any way other than the fact that people will be on the move but pepper
4:21 pm
you've missed something you've just said so many of 4 leading cities are going to be under water so you see all these people coming from the less developed world we can surely import them and submerge cities and therefore city submerged or i don't know any right is suggesting that all these people what you're saying is let's bring 3rd world people to submerge surveys doesn't make a lot of sense does it i didn't say anything i mean what i'm sick of suggesting what i'm saying is what the scientists are saying is that we are going to have our own climate refugees the developing world it's not all flattened it's not all at sea level but it will. be necessary for many many people to start moving in all sorts of places in the world in all sorts of continents now most continents can deal with them internally but some can't well the fact of the matter is that this year. un human rights committee decision it isn't legal it's not binding
4:22 pm
everything on civil country even germany is going to reject it so people like peppa can continue to dream on but what we need to do as a country is to protect our borders protect our people and look after our own simple as our. opening another front in the global trade war washington is now targeting longtime allies in europe its renewed threats to slap on the blocks auto trade response to the e.u.'s move to impose a digital tax on u.s. tech giants reporting though from paris charlotte n.c. . not being is a beethoven or for me idea is give a little here get a lot there for global companies it's often a direct line to the heart of power for generations boozy lunches were once the fashion but now it seems did still giants more interested in offering up a cup of joe as it plans to introduce a digital tax take for it seems the big 4 that google amazon facebook and apple are
4:23 pm
trying their best to cozy up to process i don't think it's a good idea to talk about politics or policy with a glass of wine in your hand and excellent food offered by a person who has clear interests to represent and then there is a little less transparent lobby because there are members of industry associations well they have consultants working for them so you talk to people and you don't realize if they are representing the interests of google or facebook or silicon valley because the names are a different reason lobbyists seem to have some very deep pockets according to transparency international in 2019 google spent some 8000000 euros trying to get into brussels good graces while the lobbying budgets of the big 4 have skyrocketed since 2014 so why is this new digital tax regime causing them such a headache well until recently most digital giants pay their tax bill in the country where they're registered but as they've grown questions are being asked as

4:25 pm
a buy one get one free offer we've been pretty clear that we think that the digital taxes discriminatory in nature but it seems with a new terror threat so almost a weekly basis from the trumpet ministration the french a boy by the idea of safety in numbers what will they do tomorrow go off to austria and spain italy the united kingdom all the other countries across the globe that will implement a digital tax we're going to order a global trade which is in nobody's interest and the result is not worth the effort it's taken them a while but it does appear that all e.u. countries are now on the same page all in agreement that they should be taxing digital joints which means if no agreement is made globally in the next few months starting with paris next week the us and e.u. the old allies could find themselves going head to head. off to
