    Merkel in Auschwitz

    German Chancellor Angela Merkel is planning to visit Auschwitz, the former Nazi death camp, for the first time in her 14 years in office. The Munich daily newspaper, Sueddeutsche Zeitung, reported on Thursday that Merkel has accepted an invitation to attend the 10th anniversary of the Auschwitz-Birkenau Foundation to be held on 6th December. Merkel’s office confirmed that a visit is planned but declined to specify the precise date as her appointments are generally announced only a week in advance.
