President of Russia,Dmitry Medvedev sent his greetings to participants in the ceremonies commemorating the 65th anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp.
The text of the President’s message reads:
“Every year the world marks January 27 as International Holocaust Remembrance Day. It was on this day in 1945 that the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp was liberated.
Soviet Army Major Anatoly Shapiro, one of those who opened the death camp’s gates, devoted the rest of his life to fighting racism and genocide. These are his words: ‘I want to say to every person on Earth: Join forces against this evil that it has been our lot to encounter! People, look after life upon our planet!’
The generations that have not seen the horrors of war need to know about them, and indeed, we all need to remember what a unthinkable price humanity paid for allowing xenophobia and chauvinism to take hold. We need to remember that six million people were killed simply because of their ethnicity, simply for being Jewish. And according to the Nazis’ plan, at least a third of the population in the occupied territories was to follow their fate.
Now, 65 years have passed since Nazism was defeated, and yet we still hear the voices of those who try to justify the Nazis’ crime and paint victims and executioners, liberators and invaders with the same brush. In some cases they go even so far as to make heroes of the Nazis’ helpers. Such attempts to rewrite history are unacceptable, and we need to join forces to prevent them.
We must never forget that indifference, apathy and failure to remember history’s lessons ultimately lead to tragedy and crime, while trust and mutual aid help us to resist even the most dangerous threats.
We have an example in the life of Miep Gies, the woman who helped a Jewish family in the Netherlands to hide from the Nazis during World War II, and later saved for the world the diary of Anne Frank, the diary of a teenage girl who was a unique witness of fascism’s atrocities.
We also have an example in the lives of two inmates of the Buchenwald concentration camp: Russian soldier Fyodor Mikhailichenko and Jewish boy Israel Meir Lau. The boy survived in this hell thanks to the help of this stranger who became his closest friend back then, and when he grew up he became chief rabbi of Israel.
The tragedy of World War II remains a bitter warning for us today. The responsibility for protecting peace and freedom in our world is in our hands. Together we are responsible for this before today’s and future generations.”
Mr Medvedev’s message was read out by Russian Minister of Education and Science Andrei Fursenko at the remembrance ceremony at Auschwitz.

In 2009 Russia marks 200 years since the birth of Russian classic Nikolai Gogol. Russian publishers, theater figures and filmmakers are getting ready for the jubilee.
Gogol Museum Moscow -By Kerry Kubilius, About.com
Gogol Museum Commemorates Contentious Author:
Nikolai Gogol, a Ukrainian-born writer who wrote in Russian, is claimed by both Ukraine and Russia as a their own. Whatever country Gogol would have ultimately associated himself with, we do know that he spent time in Moscow, most notably his last months, during which he destroyed one of his manuscripts. The rooms in which Gogol passed his final hours have been turned into a museum.
Refurbishment of the Gogol Museum:
The Gogol Museum, or the Gogol House (Dom Gogolya), underwent refurbishment in honor of the 200th anniversary of Gogol's birthday on April 1, 2009. Visitors to the museum can see the fireplace in which Gogol threw his manuscript for Dead Souls, a clock which shows the hour Gogol destroyed the manuscript (3 o'clock in the morning), and the parlor in which Gogol entertained his contemporaries.
Ladies and Gentlemen, We have the great honour and pleasure to welcome an extraordinary man : Mr. Dmitry Zimin - Founder of the Dynasty Foundation and the "Moscow Time Foundation" - whom we recently met .Please visit their website and read the extraordinary account of this special man, who, rich and powerful, remains a great and caring human being - a fascinating story that must be read and honored !
Nikolai Gogol museum opens in Moscow
MOSCOW, March 27 (RIA Novosti) - A museum devoted to Nikolai Gogol opened in Moscow on Friday in the building where the writer spent the last four years of his life.
The museum includes a mock fireplace in the parlor, where the writer burnt the second volume of his satirical novel Dead Souls hours before his death.
The clock on the mantle shows 3 a.m., the time when the novel is believed to have been destroyed. The published first volume of Dead Souls spotlighted the unseemly sides of the 19th-century Russia, while the second volume reputedly showed the good side of life.
In the parlor, frequented by many literary dignitaries during Gogol's lifetime, the writer also read his play The Inspector General, a violent satire of Russian provincial bureaucracy, to actors from the Maly Theater.
The decor was restored by museum creators based on the reminiscences of the writer's contemporaries, as few of Gogol's belongings have survived.
Exhibits in the six-room exposition feature a recently discovered original portrait of Gogol, as well as hand-written copies and printed editions of his writings.
The museum was unveiled ahead of the 200th anniversary, on April 1, of the Ukrainian-born Russian writer's birthday.
Gogol's other well-known works include satirical short stories Nose (1835-1836), which tells of an official whose nose leaves his face and lives its own life, and Overcoat (1842), a story of the life and death of an impoverished clerk extremely dedicated to his job.
