Auschwitz barracks returns to Poland from the US

Published: 12.29.13, 18:02 / Israel News

Officials at the Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp museum say half a historic barracks that was on loan to the US has been returned to Poland after two decades and long negotiations.

 

The barracks was at the US Holocaust Museum in Washington, which wanted the lease extended. But Polish regulations passed in 2003 allow only five-year loans and Poland asked for its return soon after. Following years of negotiations, the Holocaust Museum agreed in October to return it. (AP)
