US Ambassador to Germany Ric Grenell Takes Part in March of the Living
As we've sadly seen a rise in anti-Semitism violence here in the United States and in Europe, our U.S. Ambassador to Germany Ric Grenell took part in the "March of the Living" at the Auschwitz-Birkenau Concentration Camps on Holocaust Remembrance Day.
"Anti-Semitism is an evolving and continuing threat to democracy and freedom," tweeted Ambassador Grenell, "We bear witness to the past in order not to repeat it."
The rest of the delegation included US Ambassadors from Spain (Duke Buchan III), the Holy See (Callista Gingrich), and Switzerland (Edward McMullen, Jr.); as well as the Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism Elan Carr; and the Chairman of the U.S. Commission for the Preservation of America’s Heritage Abroad Paul Packer. This marks the first time an official US delegation took part in the march. Thousands of students from around the world, including 6000 from the United States, participated in the event.
