President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday paid tribute to Holocaust victims when he visited the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum, in Oswiecim, Poland.
The museum was devoted to the memory of the victims who died at both camps during World War II as President Buhari penned a hand-written tribute in the visitor’s book, quoting Shakespeare’s ”Julius Caesar”.
The President also laid a wreath at death block of the museum and the epitaph in the Block: reads ”Male and female prisoners from all parts of the camp complex where held in this building following brutal interrogations, they were in most cases sentenced to death by shooting.”
The President attended the opening of the UN Climate Change Conference in Katowice, delivered his national address at the 12-day meeting of COP24, met with several world leaders and visited the Nigerian pavilion at the climate summit.
President Buhari had earlier attended a town-hall meeting with Nigerians in Poland, a day after his arrival in the country.
