An American rabbi disrupted construction of a memorial at a Nazi death camp in Poland. Rabbi Avi Weiss, president of Amcha-The Coalition for Jewish Concerns, blocked work at the site of the Belzec death camp for about five hours today, saying the construction of a walkway through the camp was disturbing buried remains of Jews. “There are bone fragments everywhere in the camp,” Weiss said.
