A thousand former prisoners of Nazi concentration camps will hold a meeting in the Moscow Mayor's Office on Monday, RIA Novosti was told yesterday in the Moscow Committee of Public and Inter-Regional Contacts. As was pointed out by the organisers of the meeting, "Moscow authorities will pay tribute to the people who did not betray their country and carried out their civil duty." A concert will be given for the guests. Apart from that, every participant in the meeting will receive a present from the authorities. This day in all districts of the capital memorable charitable events will take place. A meeting, timed to the International Day of releasing prisoners of fascist concentration camps, will be held on April 11. At the present time 12,000 former prisoners of fascist concentration camps live in Moscow; 11,000 out of them were children during the war. All of them are members of various public organisations. The United Nations decided that April 11 is to be annually marked as the International Day of releasing prisoners of fascist concentration camps. The former prisoners have sworn an oath to remain faithful to the ideals of the Resistance and not to forget their comrades.
