4:06 pm
was actually responsible for the start of the war president under a due to refuse to attend the commemoration because it was given the chance to speak to him the speak out the former overhead we discussed the issue with mark schulman mark is editor of history central dot com. really the fact that poland wasn't there was missed the fact that he wasn't there a little bit less though we have a situation in the world frankly where facts don't seem to matter anymore people are rewriting facts just to fit their particular narrative and we find that particularly among nationalists a polish nationalism is rewriting a little bit of history to better look upon the polish people other nationals are doing the same and people are ignoring the real facts i mean listen 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. and so
4:07 pm
then historical fact u.s. vice president mike pence however chose not to emphasize the role of the red army in liberating our spirits raising questions whether that was deliberate. when soldiers opened the gates of auschwitz on january 27th 1905. they found $7000.00 half starved half naked prisoners. hundreds of boxes of camp records that documented the greatest mass murder in history this is miss ration in the united states on both sides of the aisle are 1st of all very ignorant of history unfortunately and also there is a kind of a wave of groups that has swept the us over the past several years started in the democratic party of course trying to find a way to blame someone for the loss of hillary clinton but now it's that now it's so bad that anything russian that's mentioned even this even
4:08 pm
a soviet activity in world war 2 is is just is just forgotten so it's a massive stary on the us part of one survivor's haro story is not only about escaping the death count but actually of being born there too we spoke with him about the liberation of auschwitz and how its perception has changed over the years . can you move 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 other prisoners oh my mother i have never questioned the merits of the 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 know the admit 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. well monday
4:09 pm
marks exactly 75 years since the prisoners of ice which were set free here in r.t. international will be following the memorial events on what is an emotional day for so many around the world to commemorate one of the most horrific chapters in history we will be hearing some of the stories of those who survived. the program the psychologist dubbed the architect of the cia's in hunston interrogation techniques post $911.00 is all apologetic about his role in any torture program but admission came during a military tribunal which is preparing a trial against the self-proclaimed mastermind and 4 others for the attacks in 2001 whatever personal consequences i would live with i believe there was a genuine threat of an imminent attack i thought my moral obligation to protect american lives outweighed temporary discomforts of terrorists i get sick today and do it again. james mitchell was contracted by the cia in the wake of 911 to consult
4:10 pm
and create an interrogation program for al qaida suspects he was one of 3 men or 3 wise to carry out waterboarding torture technique that mimics drowning several prisoners later he and another psychologist set up a company that provided support for the interrogations the cia's program included an illegal course of measures. in the immediate aftermath of 911 we tortured some folks. well lawyers for the $5911.00 detainees are no seeking for any statements made under interrogation to be disqualified from the trial and groans of torture you were activist sort of believes the guantanamo bay court proceedings are deeply flawed. but none of this
4:11 pm
could possibly be a fair trial i mean how can you have a fair trial with people who've been held in total secrecy whose testimony is based on torture. the media isn't allowed in the except for conditions so strict that they can't even have a picture of the court room all the testimony is restricted. that none of this none of this layers and layers of secrecy is about providing any kind of justice or accountability or even of information it is going through a theater in order to once again exert their power their power over people's lives and we should just note that there were juveniles who were youth who were held for years at guantanamo there were people who had nothing to do who were simply sold for bounty who were kuantan m
4:12 pm
