Turkish vice president attends WWII ceremony in Poland

Spectators hold candles at the memorial service during a ceremony marking the 80th anniversary of the start of World War II, in Wielun, Poland, Sunday, Sept. 1, 2019.

Pence met with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy after observances marking the start of World War II 80 years ago in Poland. I bow before the Polish victims of German tyranny. "And I ask forgiveness", Mr Steinmeier said, speaking in German and Polish at a ceremony in Wielun, where the first German bombs fell, on Sunday. By the war's end almost six years later, about 6 million Polish citizens had been killed, more than half of them Jews. More than half of those killed were Polish Jews who perished in the Holocaust. Poland's government had moved this year's commemorations from Westerplatte, near the Baltic port city of Gdańsk, to Warsaw, in anticipation of a visit from the USA president, who was to give the keynote speech.

Although Mr Steinmeier did not mention the AfD by name, his comments were a clear reference to the party, whose leader Alexander Gauland last year described the Nazi era as "a speck of birds*** in 1,000 years of glorious German history". "I ask for forgiveness for Germany's historical guilt".

As part of its campaign, the Polish National Foundation also paid for supplements in some newspapers consisting of a copy of their front pages from September 2, 1939, that highlighted the Nazi German army's attack on Poland.

"I am convinced that this ceremony will go down in the history of Polish-German friendship", he added, thanking Steinmeier for his presence. "I can see a man who has come with humility, a bowed head in order to pay homage.to share the pain". "Smoke, noise, explosions. Everything was burning", Wielun bombing survivor Tadeusz Sierandt, 88, told AFP ahead of the anniversary.

Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki meanwhile attended a separate dawn remembrance Sunday in Westerplatte, where a Nazi German battleship opened fire on a Polish fort on September 1, 1939. Despite this, little practical assistance was given to Poland, which was crushed within weeks by the Nazis and invaded by the Soviet Union from the east, according to a pact signed by Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin in August 1939 that contained a secret protocol by which the two powers would divide Europe. "But one can not deny the fact that it was the Soviet Union, which defeated Nazism, liberated Europe and saved European democracy from the annihilation", Russia's foreign ministry said in a statement.

City manager Pep Guardiola said his striker "will die scoring goals", and at 31 the Argentinian is showing no sign of letting up. It's a hard season, we need everybody. "Hopefully it is not as long as Leroy but we will see".

"This war was a German crime", the president said in a speech before Polish President Andrzej Duda, US Vice President Mike Pence, Chancellor Angela Merkel, and French Prime Minister Edouard Philippe.

Mr Morawiecki spoke of the huge material, spiritual, economic and financial losses Poland suffered in the war.

A parliamentary commission is now working on a new analysis of the extent of Poland´s wartime human and material losses.

"Today we remember those who were lost ... and all of those who sacrificed ... to win a victory for freedom", Pence said.

We need to talk about those losses, we need to remember, we need to demand truth and demand compensation.

Vice President Mike Pence has assured Ukraine's president his country has US support after President Donald Trump advocated for letting Russian Federation re-join the Group of Seven despite its annexation of Ukraine's Crimea Peninsula.
