Poland closes Russian exposition in Auschwitz

The administration of the museum in the former Auschwitz concentration camp has decided to close the Russian exposition and says it can be reopened only if Russia acknowledges occupation of Poland by the USSR.
      Citizenship of the concentration camps victims appeared to be a stumbling block for the museums administration. People burnt in the camp are listed as USSR citizens on the Russian stands at the museum which is not true according to the directorate of the memorial. Besides, the museums representatives claim that while preparing exposition materials Russians gave wrong numbers of victims and wrong names of the settlements victims were brought to Auschwitz from.
      Elena Ignatenko, the administrator of the Obelisk centre which prepared the Russian exposition in Auschwitz, says all exposition materials were in detail coordinated with the museum, and all papers and documents were approved by the Polish side.
