Default 27 January 2022 pass 77 years after KL AUSCHWITZ liberation

27 January 2021 pass 76 years after KL Auschwitz liberation by Soviet Army

There were celebrations on-line only at http://auschwitz.org/en/home-page-76/

I just read this accounts about liberation at http://lekcja.auschwitz.org/en_11_wyzwolenie/ text in English.
There were soldiers of 322nd Rifle Division and they were some fighting with Germans around death camp and inside that wasn't like on WW2 movies were soldiers just open the gates. Meaby this accounts and drawing has same potential for scenario for game.

In fight inside camp died 230 of soviet soldiers from 472 regiment of that division together with their commander colonel Siemen Lwowicz Biesprozwannyj. They are buried on communal cementary in Oświecim.

He organised underground resistance network there and plan cordinated attack by partisants units/inmates upraising and with help of allied strategical bombers. Betrayed he organised escape wrote raport for the World. Thanks to his raport in 1943 BBC brodcast list of names of SS soliders especially this who were moust brutal in Camp. Inmates often said that after this day they were really scared and somtimes starts to treat them more "humane" if that is correct word. He fight in Warsaw Upraising

On famous gate "Arbeit macht frei" thanks to Kazimierz perfect deutsch language he "simply" scream on guards and they open gates to his car. He with the rest drove to the freedom in Commander's car.
