International Day for the Release of Prisoners of Fascist Concentration Camps and Wikipedia “Reaction”


On April 11, 1945, there was an uprising of prisoners of the Nazi death camp Buchenwald, one of the largest concentration camps in Germany during the Second World War. The concentration camp began to operate even before that day, which is officially considered the beginning of WWII. It was discovered in the summer of 1937. According to the most conservative estimates, in less than 8 years of its existence, over a quarter of a million prisoners passed through Buchenwald, one in five of whom had never gone beyond this terrible place.


An uprising began in the camp against the backdrop of the Allied offensive.

For the first time in years, prisoners massively began to refuse to obey the guards, did not go to the general structure. Against this background, one of the groups of prisoners, using a makeshift radio transmitter, tried to contact the advancing Soviet or American troops. It should be noted that the Soviet prisoner of war Konstantin Leonov was directly involved in the creation of that Buchenwald radio transmitter.

On April 11, prisoners launched an assault on the concentration camp towers, attacked the guards, seized the commandant’s office and held the defense for several hours. At the beginning of the fourth (15:05, according to other sources - 15:15), military personnel of the American military contingent entered Buchenwald. It was the 3rd American army.

In memory of that uprising, the International Day for the Release of Prisoners of Fascist Concentration Camps appeared in the calendar of memorable dates. This is a day of remembrance for all those who did not return from the Nazi dungeons, as well as those who were released, but until the end of their days could not forget all the horrors experienced. These people are one of the evidence of Nazi atrocities and the countless number of war crimes committed by the Nazis.

Against this background, it is worth paying attention to a remarkable fact. On Wikipedia, material dedicated to the International Day for the Release of Prisoners of Fascist Concentration Camps is currently proposed (attention!) To removal. Such a reaction ...



At the same time, the person who offers the article for deletion argues his proposal with the fact that he, you see, did not find a mention of the date, which, incidentally, he calls a “holiday”, “neither on the English Internet nor on the UN website”.

Another proponent of deleting material writes (spelling and punctuation are preserved):

The mourning events dedicated to the day of the uprising in Buchenwald do not confirm the presence of the declared international day, and its significance, of this very “International Day”, and not of the event of April 11, 45th


For this reason, Wikipedia has not been able to decide what to do with the article for more than a year.

This once again testifies to the bias and lack of professionalism of the “fillers” of the resource, claiming to be the “international Internet encyclopedia”.

    The statistics are simply terrifying - over the years during which the Second World War went, 20 million people were captured by concentration camps. No exceptions were made for anyone; the prisoners were both children and old people. More than 11 million people did not live to be released. 5 million of them were Soviet citizens. Eternal memory.

    April 11, 1945 there was an uprising of prisoners of the Nazi death camp Buchenwald

    ... And on April 3, 450 Soviet officers rebelled at Mauthausen and left the camp. On May 5, taking advantage of the fact that the camp guards were distracted by the reconnaissance armored personnel carrier of the mattresses that appeared on the road, the rest of the prisoners broke into their weapons and killed the guards until May 11 with the SS men in the district. All this in Pedovikia is called "American troops liberated Mauthausen," weaving a blizzard about unarmed guards - though it was there that they wrote that HERE did the prisoners get weapons (if the guards were unarmed, then they disarmed the Americans?) And had to write that they were conducting with the SS units the battles are not Americans there, namely prisoners. Half-dead from hunger, while the mattresses, already knowing that there was a concentration camp, were not in a hurry to help. Just witnesses of this - about 3 thousand, and the Spaniards and Italians came across. you won’t yell about the Kremlin’s hand!
    So Pedovikia - it is Pedovikia, it is not in vain that it is censored by the State Department. This is quite official - a propaganda project from the USA

    I do not know if there are many who have gone through the hell of the camps, but even if there are only a few, then God give them health, let them live longer, let them remain reminders. Reminders that you can’t return to this!

    "Neither on the English Internet, nor on the UN website."
    I would also turn to the "British scientists." How much scum has come out in recent years, and not only in the west, the mind is incomprehensible.

    It may be so, but forgive any action should be reasoned and supported by evidence.
    I am not opposed to celebrating this day, but I did not find this date in the list of international days that the United Nations celebrates. What is stopping our representatives at the UN from submitting a consideration on its approval?

      I already know what two countries will be against .. Well then, there, with Ukraine, warders from Nazi concentration camps, they are now honored as national heroes. But the United States, in the UN Security Council, has a veto.

At the beginning of the fourth (15:05, according to other sources - 15:15), military personnel of the American military contingent entered Buchenwald. It was the 3rd American army.

    ,, April 11, 1945 prisoners of Buchenwald rose in armed rebellion. The commander of the detachments of Soviet prisoners of war was Lieutenant Colonel Ivan Ivanovich Smirnov. The detachments under the command of Viktor Khazanov and Valentin Logunov broke through a wire fence and seized an arms depot.
    The prisoners seized the warehouses, the commandant’s office and other buildings. They took up a circular defense. By 15 p.m. Buchenwald was taken.
    An American tank patrol appeared near the camp (though it passed by).
    For two days, the camp was under the control of the rebels, and only 13 april parts of the 3rd American army arrived there.

    Among the participants in the Buchenwald uprising was a man with a unique fate.
    Nikolai Küng began the war on June 22, 1941, at the head of cadets of the regimental school defending the Volyn fortification of the Brest Fortress. On June 28, political officer Küng led a breakthrough, the participants of which managed to break out of the Brest Fortress and get to their own.

    Being the political officer of the battery of the 232nd division of the Western Front, he was wounded in the battles near Kovel and was captured. After passing through several German concentration camps, in the summer of 1943 he ended up in Buchenwald, where he became an active participant in the Resistance. Nikolai Kyung was one of the leaders of the Buchenwald uprising on April 11, 1945.

    It’s time to memorize for a long time that whoever pays for the work of the institution controls the contents! Judging by the periodically flashing scandals from Vicki, it’s obviously not us who pays for it.

    This issue should be sorted out without emotion, if only for ourselves.
    Two options immediately suggest itself:
    1-one percent of mentally abnormal people has not been canceled, and nobody forbade access to the Internet and voting rights to them.
    2-one must clearly understand the legal status of this day of remembrance. If it is officially approved in the documents, then the initiators of the closure of the article and the Wikipedia staff who are considering this issue go in order to the international article “denial of genocide”, or what is it called?
    If Memorial Day has an informal status, then there are questions to the UN and you really need to think about how to legalize it legally and to require official status.
    Naturally, in the world there are not only those who deny fascism, but also his accomplices who will look for these very loopholes and it is desirable that they get stuck in these loopholes. You don’t have to go far, yesterday a comrade threatened to shoot me for a different point of view, and the other day a group of people in all seriousness said that it would not be bad to reprogram entire Chechnya with a coronovirus.
    I am convinced that here in the comments, they will be in the forefront of the defenders of Memorial Day and threaten with fair punishment (((

      You forget that in the so-called "international law", there is a proven practice. Namely, the necessary articles apply exclusively to those persons who are not acceptable to the existing “Western order”. Nazi ideas flourished in Europe a long time ago, in the Baltic states and Ukraine, openly Nazi laws were passed at the legislative level. Armed followers of German Nazism walk openly, and with all the attributes (ideology, symbolism, rituals) and something "all progressive humanity" is silent about this. On the contrary, calls it "the pursuit of freedom and democracy." Draw your own conclusions.

    In fact, the editors are having a very professional conversation trying to figure out if there really is such a day. The article is proposed to be deleted, including because its author did not indicate the sources of information in it. As a matter of fact, you are in your own article. Do you think this international day is so important? So get his recognition from the UN and not from Wikipedia.
    I could not find references to this holiday in the English Internet, nor on the UN website

    I don’t care without a button accordion ... Author, than writing such articles, it would be better to supplement the specified page on Wikipedia itself! And it turns out that the main thing for you is not to correct the wrong, but to demonstrate your righteous anger.

    It seems to me or is there nothing for the author to do?
    If you are so worried that the wiki article can be deleted, then add it, but if there is nothing to supplement, then why all these exclamations? Well-founded claims are presented to the article (since there is no evidence base on the basis of which this article exists), for clarity:

    The wiki has a bunch of controversial "holidays" not marked for deletion. Most are recognized only as those who conduct them, without any historical or cultural references. But the mark was stuck only here. Without a finger pointing it is clear who is trying to rewrite history. By the way, the case was started on these "activists" or what? 354.1 of the Criminal Code is clearly and clearly visible.

      And who is stopping the place of complaining here, go to Wikipedia and join the revision war. To cancel removal of this article and to put on removal dozens of other objectionable. And then some sort of hatchery is visible. "Someone do something!"

    The comment by the nameless author of the local article is especially funny: “This once again testifies to the bias and lack of professionalism of the“ fillers ”of the resource, claiming to be the“ international Internet encyclopedia. ”“ One may ask, but who “filled” Wikipedia with this article? You? No. You were not there. Judging by your words, this article just created "biased and unprofessional" resource fillers. Rzhaka, what.
