Canada's FM visits Auschwitz memorial

Published: 04.24.14, 14:54 / Israel News

Canadian Foreign Minister John Baird paid a visit Thursday to the memorial at the Auschwitz-Birkenau German Nazi death camp.


Baird and Canadian ambassador to Poland, Alexandra Bugailiskis, walked through the ill-omened "Arbeit Macht Frei" (Work Sets You Free) gate, though which inmates were brought into the camp to face death either in its gas chambers or from forced labor, starvation and disease. Close to a million Jews were killed in the camp during the Holocaust. (Associated Press)
