7:11 am
as a fragile national coalition government. and the dutch prime minister mark reza has apologized for his country's role during the holocaust saying it did too little to protect jewish citizens from nazi persecution he's the 1st dutch premier to make such an apology some 100000 jews from the netherlands were killed by the nazis. well that apology comes as the survivors gather today in auschwitz an official ceremony there will be mark 75 years since the liberation of that camp it was on this day in 1905 that soviet troops freed the camp and its prisoners. well germany's nazis established auschwitz and occupied poland in 1940 it was their largest and deadliest camp in total $1300000.00 people were deported to auschwitz most of them were jews from across europe nearly all of them were killed within
7:12 am
aussies using gas chambers to do so now others were also sent to auschwitz roman sinti polish political prisoners gays christians jehovah's witnesses a reporter met with the v. levine one of the few remaining jewish survivors at home in his one bedroom apartment in berlin david levine lives here alone his wife has moved to a nursing home he's one of the last remaining survive us his parents and siblings were murdered they have a 75 years ago. that's me that's my brother and another brother and my sister. the 94 year old was born in warsaw to a jewish family during the nazis reign of terror he was sent to 4 different concentration camps. the idea of all the question why. i can't answer that today. i can't even think about it why. why
7:13 am
a 9 year old girl who hadn't done anything who hadn't sinned why did they murder why. all. she hadn't done anything in life only because she had a different tree. of it was 19 when auschwitz was liberated. while there he was forced to work in the gas chambers as a slave labor of the german company that produced the deadly gas. i worked down on the gas chambers we collected the cycling gas. you just turn into stone you know what i mean. the horror is hard to comprehend for many years it has returned to auschwitz at the end of january.
7:14 am
this day is an anniversary for me it's an anniversary of death. this year is no different krakow airport every year the custodians of auschwitz bring survivors together on the anniversary marking the liberation of the german extermination camp but the interest this year is higher than usual. the press contingent for the 75th anniversary is huge they're here to listen to the last living witnesses and their stories of the hell that was. one day i found out that my brother was shot. to this day i still don't know why. and i can never get over the. he. can't go on.
7:15 am
i'll start crying if i. start crying. i can't continue. it has to cut his talk short it's like he can still feel the beatings today he tells us 75 years after the liberation of the auschwitz concentration camp. did have your correspondent joins me now for more on this good morning to you 75 years after auschwitz anti semitism is on the rise again in europe and in germany what's happening. that's a very big question is a sense of incredulity that it is rising again against the background of this kind of history i think there's some sense that the history is being forgotten the memory is not quite as alive as it used to be with many of the survivors no longer
7:16 am
being around but i think at the same time you can say that the rise of right wing parties across europe of far right wing parties across europe has opened the door to this kind of sentiment there's been a right wing leader in germany who has said that the nazi era is negligible compared to the entirety of german history to these kind of statements and make it easier for people to utter these kind of sentiments and i think you also have to say there is an element of the middle east conflict playing a role many arabs in europe have a hate for israel for jews and this is also reflected in the i'm just semitic acts committed in europe and the president of the world jewish congress ronald lauder has been weighing in on this he's in auschwitz at the moment we asked for his thoughts on the rise in anti semitism here's what he had to say with preacher innovations go in. and young people don't and they see the internet and they react . and how we're going to try to go into sort of luckily and
7:17 am
get it he killed 2 innocent bystanders but the thing is where to get it straight from the get of the internet he said he was sitting in his basement was the. control room going to be going through we have the structure and we can start to make it a point to build a fortress just told to do. hans germany has far more restrictive speech regulations than say the united states are lauder's expectations realistic about how much internet regulation can achieve well you can never be 100 percent. certain you can never control things 100 percent and the internet obviously doesn't make it easier for these kind of sentiments to be expressed partly because it's much more difficult to control the german foreign minister just published an opinion piece in a german magazine on the german website way he stresses the fact that these kind of
7:18 am
restrictions need to be increased that the punishment of perpetrators of utterances in the internet as well need to be prosecuted need to be punished criminal penalties seminal problems with criminal penalties is also pleading for an extension of these kind of rules across europe that they are very restrictive. rules that exist in germany and not only exists here but are extended to the rest of germany so there are attempts to do that also attempts obviously through education to raise awareness about the history of germany about what actually happened in the holocaust to keep his memory alive basically german president will be at auschwitz today what do you think from voltage di meyer will be concentrating on. well there was already in israel. just a couple of days ago where he said in a statement there that german guilt for the holocaust german responsibility for the
7:19 am
hollow holocaust is a permanent one cannot be excused and germany feels a responsibility for jews for the state of israel. a responsibility as a states to try and aid israel to try and edge was and also to encourage jewish life to return to germany i think those kind of statements we can expect from the germans president from thanks so much for coming in on this today and we will have special coverage marking the 75 years since the liberation of auschwitz throughout the day here on d w. in china the death toll from the rapidly spreading corona virus outbreak has jumped to 80 people more than 2700 or infected right now. health officials say the outbreak will intensify the virus has appeared in all but one of china's provinces and in at least 11 other nations beijing's says it's moving to contain the disease with travel bans by canceling major public events and by shutting down tourist

have seen today this really address the continental us the lunar new year holiday said been extended by 3 days it's the 1st time in the history of modern china that this happened and the reason is the government wants to prevent people from traveling again because right now more than 100 possibly more than 200000000 chinese i was a few their relatives visiting their families mostly in the countryside and of course in the coming days they are. expected to travel to their homes which is almost in the big cities in the east coast and of course this is a very dangerous the virus could spread especially since you know that the virus is contagious also treat the cube ation period so many people might be spreading the virus without even knowing that they are infected because it don't show any symptoms yet ok fobbing thanks so much for that from beijing we'll have more on the story of course as it develops.
