In act of joint reflection, Israeli and PA diplomats visit Auschwitz
"The top Israeli and Palestinian diplomats stationed in Poland visited the former Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp complex together Sunday in a rare joint act of reflection on the Holocaust.
Israeli Ambassador David Peleg said he spent 2 hours with his Palestinian counterpart, Khaled Ghazal, visiting the gas chambers, crematoria and barracks at the former Nazi camps in southern Poland.
Ghazal, who initiated the visit, said he saw it as way to express his sympathy with the suffering of the Jewish people during World War II, and said he hoped such acts of remembrance can help build better ties between his people and Israelis.
"I just wanted to express my deep solidarity with the victims of fascism and the crimes (against) the Jewish people and humanity at large," Ghazal said. "I think the lesson learned from this project motivated us to work for creating peace in the Middle East."......"
