3:05 am
russian foreign minister foreign ministry has responded by saying that this these comments from the polish prime minister are a blatant distortion of history that it is a criminal attempt to rewrite the history of world war 2 and the polish poets politicians when talking about the 2nd world war are increasingly using lies and manipulation and that they've ignored evidence that has risen of dozens of eyewitness accounts and documents it was the raid army that liberated auschwitz and as you well know some 1300000 people died in that day of camp more than 90 percent of them were jews the polish president has refused to come to today's commemoration because he was not given a slot at way to talk and in its defense the holocaust memorial said that they offered him to talk at another event but he has simply refused to come the israeli president has said that the whole issue of history should really be lift. to
3:06 am
historic over searches politicians and solve should be focused on the future we have heard from the israeli foreign minister who has thanked the raid on me for liberating auschwitz. i want to personally thank you for the fact that the red army freed auschwitz and helped in the victory over the nazis. now there are statistics that an increasing number of young people actually have never heard of auschwitz don't know what the holocaust was and increasingly actually don't even know what happened during the 2nd world war there is a group of youngsters here in israel who are doing the best they can to change that . from the ashes of the auschwitz concentration camp emerged to woods never again. through the generations as a warning in a few days when a cause for members day will be commemorated around the world the tragedy of $6000000.00 jews who were tortured gassed and burnt in concentration camps will be
3:07 am
remembered but for how much longer according to recent reports as many as 66 percent of millennial cannot identify auschwitz and almost hoffa cannot even name one concentration camp some don't even know what the holocaust was there's be multiple cases of people disrespecting concentration camps with a sophie's something that's all people named and shamed by the controversial your low cost project increasing needs falling on the younger generation to make sure the atrocities of the holocaust are not forgotten now carries over its whose grandfather was a survivor outraged by recent studies showing the ignorance of 1000000 meals he set up a project called humans of the holocaust what i'm trying to do this project is actually you know to go for and to better educate people about what happened in the holocaust and i'm trying to do it in a different angle trying to because we're speaking about me larry was you know today you have twitter and you have instagram and you have to talk and you have so much information flow and you have to get the attention of the other generation.
3:08 am
humans of the holocaust is a project that tells the stories of survivors and the children who speak about the years in camps and how they lived with this experience off towards some young people have come up with unusual ways of remembering the biliteral my grandfather was. a hero for me he was a very very big part in my life from when i was a baby i asked him before i did that he asked why why young girl like you want to do a number of holocaust in your head and i thought him. i want to keep the story. to tell my kids to tell my grandkids than they could know which ones to expand his project with more human stories so the would remember and never forget i would you for example there is a holocaust survivor named google like you know he told me that the only thing that actually kept him going while he was in the holocaust was
3:09 am
a sense of humor and he suggested that we will take a speech or holding your boom in the shape of the you will badge the jews were forced to put on their sleeves during the holocaust and in the beginning i wasn't sure that this is exactly the picture that i want to portray you know in this exhibition but when we took the picture and when he actually you know to be able to me actually embrace and he was so happy he had the this huge smile these face and you know everything connected because his message is that is no matter what is happening actually in your life if you will to use your sense of humor you will find the resilience to actually you know to keep forward i'm sure wing stories that people will be able to actually to relate to and my hope is that you know the people you know whether they will see that exhibition they will do their own research and it will try to figure out why the holocaust happened and what are the lessons that we're all supposed to learn from you know from for from history never
3:10 am
again i'm running dying wish only time will tell. and we talked about the issue of politicizing the past for the senior holocaust historian for the organization and behind the remembrance for him explain why it's important to avoid distorting facts you can watch that interview with david silva in full it will be on air throughout the day here is a quick preview in the meantime. in terms of holocaust memory sometimes falling into. politics where what's important is marshalling facts to support a certain ideology or political position and therefore the facts are marshalled very very selectively and other facts are very carefully ignored that's going on that has always been around it's happening i would say. increasingly in certain places and i think part of what we try to avoid here at the shen we try to avoid that we try to deal with the subject itself and what actually happened and who is involved in what ways and what do they do and and how do we teach it there's
3:11 am
no doubt that the red army liberated auschwitz and that's and that's historical fact and you know there are several 1000 prisoners in auschwitz the overwhelming majority of them who were there on the day of liberation were jews as in general at auschwitz what had happened and had the red army come a few days later they might have died of cold and of disease and the red army came in and started to treat them are you concerned that the memory of the 2nd world war in the holocaust will be revised to the point that future generations actually won't know what happened futures are actions already don't know what happened in many places young people young adults not not children don't even know what the holocaust was on that happened and i think we need to remind people of that or else we risk increase the risk of terrible things like this happening again you know after all of the holocaust happened it can happen again and doesn't have to be
3:12 am
germans and jews next time. opening another front in the global trade war washington's targeting a longtime ally in europe that's off the reading threats this lot of silence all to trade at the world economic forum in switzerland that came in response to the e.u.'s move to impose a digital tax on u.s. tech giants and he's shot at doing the reports from paris. not being. beethoven for the idea is give a little here get a lot there for global companies it's often a direct line to the heart of power for generations boozy lunches were once the fashion but now it seems did still giants more interested in offering up a cup of joe as it plans to introduce a digital tax take for it seems the big 4 that google amazon facebook and apple are trying their best cozy up to process. i don't think it's a good idea to talk about politics or policy with a glass of wine in your hand and excellent food offered by a person who has clear interests to represent and then there is
3:13 am
a little less transparent lobby because there are members of industry associations well they have consultants working for them so you talk to people and you don't realize if they are representing the interests of google or facebook or silicon valley because the names are different these lobbyists seem to have some very deep pockets according to transparency international in 2019 google spent some 8000000 euros trying to get into brussels good graces while the lobbying budgets of the big 4 have skyrocketed since 2014 so why is this new digital tax regime causing them such a headache well until recently most digital giants pay their tax bill in the country where they're registered but as they've grown questions are being asked as to why they were paying tax income derived in individual countries their fronts led the charge by imposing the so-called tax causing the trumpet ministration to go
3:14 am
into a tailspin. but the american companies are one of the british version of. she's going to be. gone and trump say they are still talking things through possibly over a free cup of fame. spoke other countries in europe are now gearing up to take a slice of the profits point even the brits you know longer agree with the e.u. on anything on the same page plan to go ahead with article services tax in april italy says it to you is gearing up for a digital tax leaving the us to throw more threats of tariffs as if they're like a buy one get one free offer we've been pretty clear that we think that the digital discriminatory in nature but it seems with a new terror threat so almost a weekly basis from the trumpet ministration the french are boyd by the idea of
3:15 am
safety in numbers what will they do tomorrow go off to austria and spain italy the united kingdom all the other countries across the globe that will implement digital tax we're going to order global trade which is in nobody's interest and the result is not worth the effort it's taken them a while but it does appear that all e.u. countries are now on the same page all in agreement that they should be taxing digital giants which means if no agreement is made globally in the next few months starting with talks in paris next week the u.s. and e.u. the old allies could find themselves going head to head. paris. economics professor steve keen believes america's push for its own national interests is having a detrimental effect on everyone else. since trump is in charge he'll do whatever he sees as being a win situation for american
3:16 am
a loss for the rest of the world i think of the cost of the because these companies are mainly american and he's going to impose taxes on them and they'll continue without adding this axis and he could easily threaten to cut access to the guts of the countries if they are the companies such as they are if there are quantify taxes in national jurisdictions like europe he would probably think they have to pay taxes in america from coming in globally and of course that undermines the whole idea of having national succession systems. brought between the world's richest man on the saudi crown prince says gold you've got a lot sex but some bold some although new stories still ahead this hour. you know world of big partisan movies lot and conspiracy it's time to wake up
3:17 am
to dig deeper to hit the stories that mainstream media refuses to tell more than ever we need to be smarter we need to stop slamming the door on the back and shouting past each other it's time for critical thinking it's time to fight for the middle for the troops the time is now we're watching closely watching the hawks. you know one of the best charts greatest charts i have really been studying for years now i don't know exactly how we're going to get into this but i just want to mention right here at the top it's the money velocity chart . the money velocity chart and we're going to be getting into that.
