Israel's PM opens historic exhibit at Auschwitz
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu points at a map showing where Jews were killed during the Holocaust at the opening of a new pavilion at the former Nazi death camp of Auschwitz, in Oswiecim, Poland, Thursday, June 13, 2013. The exhibition in Bloc 27 was curated by Israel’s Yad Vashem Institute Chairman Avner Shalev. It is meant to educate visitors about the Holocaust and the Nazi Germany’s quest to exterminate the Jewish people.The event closed Netanyahu’s two-day visit to Poland that was steeped in symbolism, as it focused on the Jewish people's painful history there during World War II as well as on the strong relations between Poland and the Jewish state today.
