JERUSALEM, June 6. /TASS/. The Israeli people keep the memory of Soviet Red Army’s liberation of Auschwitz, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in an interview with TASS First Deputy Director General Mikhail Gusman ahead of a visit to Moscow.
"We will never forget that the Red Army liberated Auschwitz. We will never forget that victory over Nazism was achieved by two forces - under the US leadership in the west and by the Red Army in the east," the prime minister said.
"Jewish soldiers also fought in the Red Army, falling for the sake of a great purpose," he said. "We will never forget it, this is our common history. It was a threat to the whole humankind, a threat to the existence of the Jewish people. We are proud that we cherish this memory," Netanyahu said.
He said he had taken part in activity to install the Victory Monument in Netanya, a memorial marking the victory of the Red Army. "We are glad that President [Vladimir] Putin took part in its unveiling. It was very important for me. This is an historic monument," the prime minister added.
A ceremony to unveil the monument took place on June 25, 2012 in Netanya, the Israeli city located 30 kilometers north of Tel Aviv.
