The European Union has donated more than $5 million to preserve the site of the Auschwitz Nazi death camp. “Holocaust survivors welcome the European contribution as a tangible expression that the horrors of the Nazi era must remain a lesson for future generations,” Elan Steinberg, vice president of the American Gathering of Holocaust Survivors and their Descendants, said in a statement. “The protection of Auschwitz represents more than the physical preservation of a site; it is a symbolic preservation of memory.”
