Some 300 Israeli Arabs and Jews toured the former Jewish district of Krakow on Monday, beginning a visit that aims to help Muslims understand what Jews suffered in the Holocaust. The group of 150 Israeli Arab intellectuals, athletes and businessmen, joined by as many Jews, were to spend the next two days touring and learning about what happened at Auschwitz. The visit to the camp will be the largest by a group of Arabs, according to Jaroslaw Mensfelt, spokesman for the Auschwitz museum.
