More than 1.1 million people, most of them Jews, perished in the camp's gas chambers or from starvation, cold and disease.

Set up by Nazi Germany in occupied Poland in 1940, at first to house Polish political prisoners, it became the largest of the extermination centers where Adolf Hitler's plan to kill all Jews - the "Final Solution" - was put into practice.

Survivors and other guests arrive to attend a wreath-laying ceremony at the "death wall" at Auschwitz, January 27, 2020. A 2019 survey by the U.S.-based Anti-Defamation League showed that about one in four Europeans harbor "pernicious and pervasive" attitudes towards Jews, compared with 19% of North Americans. In Germany, 42% agreed that "Jews still talk too much about what happened to them in the Holocaust," it said. Two people were killed in a shooting near a synagogue in eastern Germany in October, in what officials called an anti-Semitic attack.

Survivors carry a wreath at the "death wall" at Auschwitz, January 27, 2020. The courtyard was where prisoners were sometimes put up against the brick "wall of death" and shot. "From inside, we would hear the screams of those being murdered," said survivor Jona Laks.

Jona Laks, survivor of Josef Mengele's twins experiments, and her granddaughter Lee Aldar stand next to the gate with the slogan "Arbeit macht frei" ("Work sets you free"), January 26, 2020. Mengele, an SS doctor, would also pick prisoners whom he subjected to pseudo-medical experiments. He had a particular interest in twins. On the platform, he picked her sisters for labor and sent Laks to die. But when her sister Chana begged Mengele not to separate her twin sisters he seized the opportunity for new guinea pigs and sent an SS officer to retrieve Laks from the crematorium. REUTERS/Nir Elias

Jona Laks and her granddaughter Lee Aldar walk as they visit Auschwitz, January 26, 2020. "I was lucky," said Laks. "Or maybe unlucky," she added after a moment. "I sometimes wonder whether animals could survive the inhumane cruelty we were subjected to," she told Aldar as they walked slowly towards Block number 10, which served as Mengele's laboratory. "I don't think they could."

Holocaust survivor Edith Notowicz, 90, attends a ceremony, January 27, 2020. Mengele, the "Angel of Death," picked Notowicz to be part of his medical experiments. In Notowicz's case, she was sterilized by force. "There were four or five people around me, Mengele as well. They cut me up, without anesthetic," she said, drawing an imaginary line on her pelvis. "I screamed and they hit me." She lost her parents and siblings in the chaos of their arrival at Auschwitz. She never saw them again. Notowicz has returned to Auschwitz for the third, and as she says "probably the final time."

Poland's President Andrzej Duda and his wife Agata Kornhauser-Duda light a candle at the Monument to the Victims, January 27, 2020. During the somber ceremony at the gate to the camp, Duda spoke of the chilling efficiency of the Nazis' genocidal plan, which included vast crematoria to burn the bodies of victims. "For years the factory of death operated at full capacity. Smoke was rising from the chimneys, the transports were rolling. People walked and walked in their thousands. To meet their death," he told the gathering.
