Relay of Life

The Dr. Rath Health Foundation is the Receipient of the “Relay of Life and Remembrance” from the Auschwitz survivors

Auschwitz Survivors Propose
Constitution for New Europe

On November 13, 2007, more than 30 survivors of the Auschwitz extermination camp and other Nazi concentration camps assembled in Poland for a one day conference at Auschwitz. Based on their unique moral credo, this extraordinary group of people decided to throw their weight into the discussion about Europe’s future. In a solemn ceremony, the survivors of this “hell on earth” shared their experiences from the past and also proposed a constitution for a “Europe for the People, By the People.”

The focus of this unique document is the protection of the life and health of people currently threatened by corporate interests whose multi-billion dollar profits derive from turning the human body into a marketplace. The common denominator of the pharmaceutical industry and the GM (genetically modified) food industry are patented products that serve the interest of giant investment groups at the expense of the health and lives of millions of people. “This is not a political campaign but a question of morality” said August Kowalczyk, the founder of the Auschwitz Hospice Foundation (Fundacja Hospicjum Oswiecim) the main organizer of the conference.

Particular reference was made at the conference to the fact that the Auschwitz death factory was also a slave labor camp of the IG Auschwitz, a 100% subsidiary of the chemical cartel IG Farben, composed of Bayer, BASF, Hoechst and other companies, that continue to threaten the lives of millions today – yet by more subtle means.

The conference was jointly organized by the Dr. Rath Health Foundation, the non-profit organization that has been instrumental in exposing the fraudulent nature of the pharmaceutical business with disease and showing how the driving principle of this industry, both in WWII and now, is profit over life. In recognition of this work, the Foundation also received the “Relay of Life” from the survivors of Auschwitz, with the symbolic request to carry the remembrance of Auschwitz into the future.
