Please don’t ig­nore world news like Auschwitz

The Citizen (KZN) - - Letters -

The Cit­i­zen has let us down by not in­clud­ing this in the paper, writes Gina Bergman

Iam shocked that your news­pa­per did not even write a small para­graph re­gard­ing the 75th an­niver­sary of the lib­er­a­tion of Auschwitz by the Rus­sian army.

All the TV sta­tions in South Africa and around the world had sto­ries re­gard­ing the above. Many kings, princes, and heads of gov­ern­ments came to Is­rael to be at the event and go to the Holo­caust mu­seum to see what ac­tu­ally hap­pened dur­ing World War II where millions per­ished.

Among those who per­ished, were Jews, gyp­sies, gay peo­ple and Catholics.

Why has your paper ig­nored the fact that over 1.6 mil­lion peo­ple in Auschwitz alone were ex­ter­mi­nated? This is world news and you have let us down.

The Auschwitz me­mo­rial cer­e­mony was ex­ten­sively cov­ered yes­ter­day. – Edi­tor
