moscow where it's just past 3 in the morning you're watching the weekly here on out international welcome to the program. on thursday dozens of world leaders and dignitaries gathered in jerusalem to commemorate the holocaust it was time to mark the 75th anniversary of soviet forces liberating auschwitz the infamous death camp in nazi occupied poland. my dear family i'm writing this letter before my death i don't know exactly when me and my relatives are going to die just because we're jews i'm in a concentration camp before all of us will be shot in a shelter thursday 4 am 16942 very well to you all.
7:02 pm
but i am barack. the other thing i wanted to tell you was that i had several jobs in birkenau in auschwitz one of the jobs was clearing the ashes from where the bug juice through a tunnel into a small river. i worked there together with another guy who was already old he was 32 and i was 16. i didn't know what these ashes were. one day when i saw it in daylight i asked. what is the job we're doing so he told me what it was. not me. blush. and never forget it every morning i look at my hands and see well i have the number here and i see it every day time in the.
7:03 pm
world leaders at the holocaust memorial form spoke about the importance of remembering the horrors of what happened israel thanked the red army for its role in the victory over naziism and vladimir putin gave an address describing the holocaust as one of the darkest chapters in world history. before my visit to jerusalem i looked through the official documents and reports of red army offices after the liberation of auschwitz concentration camps i must say to colleagues it was impossible to read the details of how the terrible machine of human extermination works those crimes by the nazis were deliberate and well planned what they called the final solution to the jewish question is one of the
7:04 pm
darkest and most shameful pages in modern world history but today not everyone in poland views the red army as the liberating force some of the country's top officials believe the u.s.s.r. was actually responsible for the start of the war and president andre do they refused to attend the commemoration because vladimir putin was given a chance to speak at the forum before him we discussed this issue with historian marc shulman editor of history at central dot com. clearly the fact that poland wasn't there was missed the fact that he wasn't there a little bit less so we have a fit 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 to doing the same and people are ignoring the real facts i mean this and the soviet people bled more than anyone else during world war 2 the soviets gave up more in
7:05 pm
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 loaded been defeated and i don't think anyone can really question that in terms of historical fact the us finds present mike pence how the chose not to emphasize the role of the red army in liberating auschwitz raising questions as to 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 missed 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 crucify o.b.o. that has swept the us over the past several years started in the democratic party of course trying to find
7:06 pm
a way to blame someone for the loss of hillary clinton but now it's that i know it's so bad that anything russian that's mentioned even this even the soviet activity in world war 2 is is just it's just forgotten so you know it's it's a massive stereo on the us part. well one survivor's harrowing 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. people tell us that there was no liberation they say so if there was no red army then there wouldn't be me or 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 know the admit there was a liberation of auschwitz but at the same time they say there was no liberation of warsaw recall that the 2nd occupation. was liberated but that was so and
7:07 pm
other cities were not i don't know maybe the americans liberated them well one day it will mark exactly 75 years since the prisoners about fits for sept here on r.t. international be following the memorial events of what is an emotional day for so many around the world. and other news from the week a psychologist dubbed the architect of the cia's enhanced interrogation techniques post $911.00 is an apologetic about his role in any torture program that admission came during a military tribunal which is preparing a trial against 5 guantanamo bay inmate 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 discomfort of terrorists i get up today and do it again. well james mitchell was contracted by the cia in the wake of $911.00 to consult and create an interrogation program for al qaeda suspects he was one of 3
7:08 pm
men authorized to carry out waterboarding torture technique that mimics drowning on several prisoners later he and another psychologist set up a company that provided support for the interrogations the cia's program included now illegal coercive measures. in the immediate aftermath of 911 we tortured some. lawyers for the $5911.00 detainees are now seeking for any statements made under interrogation to be disqualified from the trial on the grounds of torture and he will activist sara flounders believes the guantanamo bay court proceedings a deeply flawed. but none of this 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
7:09 pm
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 a 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 o $780.00 prisoners and then the thousands who were held in secret rendition or around the world no accounting for them so this was
7:10 pm
a huge program and its ramifications were still feeling today. well the 1st to say name mr mitchell water boarded was a palestinian man known as abu zubaida he was never been challenged for the crime but remains indefinitely in guantanamo bay he was the 1st known cia prisoner to undergo in hunts interrogation and lost an eye while being tortured during his time as a beta has attempted to illustrate his experiences in a warning that you might find some of the following images distressing. as soon as they locked me up inside the box i tried my best to sit up but in vain
7:11 pm
for the box was too short i tried to take a curled position but to no avail for it was too tight the very strong pain made me scream unconsciously. they kept pouring water and concentrating on my nose and my mouth until i really felt i was drowning and my chest was just about to explode from the lack of oxygen . the. long hours went by while i was standing in that position my hands were tight to the upper bars. it felt like an eternity to the point that i found myself falling
7:12 pm
asleep despite the water being thrown at me by the guard. there is absolutely no justification that can ever be given or accepted for the horrendous and systematic torture that was used and it was used and authorized from the highest levels from the presidency the f.b.i. the cia the top levels of the military the studies were known the conditions were known this isn't just one or 2 people michel and jennings this was an entire unit set up in order to use torture and to study how to apply the most excruciating forms of torture of pain of waterboarding of slamming of of packing into tight boxes of stress positions and on and on all of this really has to be exposed and there are accounting demanded not only of those who designed the torture but of those who set up these torture camps. and

7:15 pm
enough to put the russian authorities on high alert not least because a chair is a border with china the break of a new corona virus which was 1st recorded in china carries a body logical threats to the population of russia the $1500000.00 chinese tourists that visit russia every year have now become a potential public health risk russian authorities have begun screening them at all international airports prepared to diagnose the virus if it appears on top of that moscow has advised people against traveling to china russia is not alone in being worried about the outbreak reaching its territory a number of other countries have begun screening for the disease at airports as well as opinions nationally in the just cases you know is the answer to one over no phones at places which are further away if this is outbreak continues as we're seeing oversea globally highly connected and so it is likely increasingly

7:17 pm
what hope to do so. he put themselves on the line they did accept the reject. so when you want to be president and she. wanted. to go right to the press this is what the 3 of them will be good. i'm interested always in the waters in the. flesh. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy foundation let it be an arms race is on all sides very dramatic development the only really i'm going to lose is i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical time to sit down and talk.
