The president of Slovakia received a delegation of women who survived the Holocaust. President Rudolf Schuster’s move came Tuesday, on the 60th anniversary of the first transport of Slovak Jews to Auschwitz. Most of the 70,000 Slovak Jews who were sent to concentration camps during the war were killed. The Slovak state paid the Nazis for the transports with money raised by confiscating Jewish property.
