PRESS RELEASE: APRIL 15, 2010

Mayor Janusz Marszalek of Oswiecim, Poland, known throughout the world as the site of the infamous Nazi concentration camp, Auschwitz, has called upon the world’s Head of States, in the name of the one and a half million victims who perished in the furnaces, to use the approaching United Nations’ Review of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty in May to negotiate steps for a convention for the total abolition of nuclear weapons.

In a letter to the world’s leaders, Mayor Marszalek wrote: “This would be a meaningful and signal contribution to the world’s peace and a great token of remembrance of all the victims of war.” He recalled that 2010 was the 65th year of the liberation of the camp by the Soviet Union’s

Army. Large commemoration events took place at the site of theAuschwitz Camp involving former prisoners and leading political and intellectual personalities.

The City of Oswiecim is in the process of a campaign to erect a Mound of Remembrance and Reconcilation to be erected at the site of the Auschwitz-Birkienau camps.
