Ceremonies to mark the 70th anniversary of the liberation of the camp will take place on January 27, with some 300 former Auschwitz prisoners taking part in the commemoration event. The Germans built the Auschwitz camp in 1940 as a place of incarceration for the Poles. From 1942, it became the largest site of extermination of the Jews from Europe. In Auschwitz, the Nazi Germans killed at least 1.1 million people, mainly Jews, but also Poles, Roma, Soviet prisoners of war and prisoners of other ethnicities. On January 27, 1945 the camp was liberated by the Red Army soldiers.

The Ebola outbreak has killed over 2000 people in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone since February, making it the largest and deadliest ever Ebola outbreak, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). West African states lack the resources to battle the world’s worst outbreak of Ebola and deep cultural suspicions about the disease remain a big obstacle to halting its spread, ministers said on Wednesday. If nothing is done to halt the outbreak and help struggling nations, the disease might spread to a larger area and claim even more lives.

Photographer Leonhard Foeger documented the process as workers collected semen from breeding bulls at an artificial insemination centre in Hohenzell, Upper Austria. The bulls at the centre mount either an artificial cow or another bull to ejaculate so that their semen can be collected. The quality of the sperm is then checked, and the semen is diluted and preserved in tanks full of liquid nitrogen before being shipped out to clients. The breeding centre exports cattle semen to more than 52 countries worldwide and last year it sold approximately 800,000 samples. Portions of semen from bulls belonging to the Simmental breed cost between 6 and 15 euros. One bull at the centre, Wille, has produced 5 million euros worth of semen over the course of his lifetime.
