Muslim religious leaders tour Auschwitz alongside AJC officials

Mohammed al-Issa, the secretary-general of the Mecca-based Muslim World League, arrives at Auschwitz alongside Muslim religious leaders and a delegation of American Jewish Committee (AJC) officials.

Issa’s arrival at Auschwitz comes after he toured the US Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, DC, in May 2018 and wrote an opinion article in the Washington Post in January 2019 — condemning the Nazis’ “heinous crimes.”

AJC CEO David Harris has said the trip represents “the most senior delegation of Muslim religious leaders to visit Auschwitz ever.”
