Poland to reopen investigations into Auschwitz concentration camps

Poland has reopened investigations into crimes committed in several concentration camps connected to Auschwitz during the Second World War.

It is thought over one million Jews and Poles were killed by the Nazis in Auschwitz alone. Polish authorities hope to track down any surviving members of the Nazis, complicit in the genocide.

The original investigation was closed in the 1980s, due to Poland’s status as a Soviet satellite state, which created difficulties in questioning witnesses and hunting down the perpetrators abroad.
