Israeli fighter jets flew over the site of the Auschwitz death camp. Despite protests from officials affiliated with the camp’s museum, three American-built, Israeli-modified F-15s flew over the camp Thursday. The crews in the Israeli planes carried the names of those killed in Auschwitz on Sept. 4, 1943 and included descendants of Holocaust survivors.
