79th Anniversary of Auschwitz Liberation: Commemorating the Tragedy and Honoring the Victims

Introduction to the Ceremonies

On January 27, 2024, we will commemorate the 79th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, a symbol of the cruelty of World War II and a place that has become an eternal reminder of the millions of innocent victims of the Holocaust. Under the honorary patronage of the President of the Republic of Poland, Andrzej Duda, the world will once again look upon one of the darkest places in human history, to remind ourselves of its tragic lessons.

Central Theme of the Ceremonies: Human and Memory

The central theme of this year's commemoration is the individual - the victim who paid the highest price during the Holocaust. Faces of prisoners held in Auschwitz, immortalized in drawings made during the camp's existence, are central to the ceremonies, aiming to remind the world about the individual dimension of the tragedy. The memory of the individual, as noted by the director of the Auschwitz Museum, Dr. Piotr M. A. Cywiński, is crucial to understanding the depths of experiences related to this place.

Live Broadcast of the Liberation Commemorations

On the occasion of the 79th anniversary, all related events will be available to a global audience through a live broadcast on the official Auschwitz website and on the official Auschwitz Museum channel on YouTube. This will allow millions worldwide to participate in the ceremonies, even if they cannot be physically present at the site, which has become an eternal witness to history.


The mission of the Auschwitz Museum is not only to preserve the memorial site but also to educate and convey a message of the necessity of building peace and tolerance. Through the continuation of ceremonies and educational activities, such as internet lessons and the "About Auschwitz" podcast series, the museum ensures that the memory of these events remains alive and is conveyed to future generations.
