Soviet soldiers are seen with some of the prisoners they liberated in Auschwitz II-Birkenau in this archival picture. Some 7,000 prisoners, including more than 600 children and youths below the age of 18, were alive when the camp was liberated. On January 27, 2005, hundreds of survivors and dozens of world leaders will commemorate the 60th anniversary of the camp's liberation by the Soviet army and pay homage to the estimated 1.5 million people, mostly Jews, murdered there by the Nazis.
