67th anniversary of the liberation of Mauthausen

The Mauthausen-Gusen death camp, built under Nazi command in Austria, was intended for political prisoners. Some 200,000 people were murdered there (120-320,000), all them committed antifascists from all Europe. 

The camp was abandoned by the SS guards on May 3rd and reached by US troops on May 5th. 

Banner reads (in Spanish): The Spanish Antifascist welcome the liberation troops

Let's not forget because the ghost of fascism has arisen from its ill-sealed tomb and threatens Europe and the World again, fed by its Capitalist masters.
