A German memorial center’s vice president is killed when Russian shells strike his flat

Boris Romantschenko died due to the Russian bombardment of his Kharkiv residential tower. The 96-year-old formerly served as vice president of the Buchenwald and Mittelbau-Dora Memorials Foundation. He previously paid a visit to the camp in 2012 to commemorate the camp’s 67th anniversary of the liberation by US soldiers. His assassination came almost three weeks after President Putin declared his intention to “de-Nazify” Ukraine.

Andrei Romantschenko, a Ukrainian, was apprehended and transported to Germany by Nazi soldiers at sixteen after the Soviet Union’s invasion. Following a failed escape attempt in 1943, he was sent to the Buchenwald concentration camp, where 56,545 individuals were killed before the camp was liberated in 1945. He returned to mark the 67th anniversary of the camp’s liberation by US forces in 2012.
