During her visit to Krakow for the Community of Democracies meeting on July 3, Secretary Clinton visited the factory of Oskar Schindler, who saved the lives of over 1000 Jews during the Holocaust. Clinton met with Minister Wladyslaw Bartoszewski, who was interned at Auschwitz and active in the Home Army resistance movement, and who now serves as chair of the International Auschwitz Council, as well as Professor Jacek Majchrowski, the Mayor of Krakow. Clinton, who visited Auschwitz in 1999 as the First Lady, was led through the museum, which opened last month and features an exhibition on Nazi-occupied Krakow, by Dr. Edyta Gawron, an alumna of the State Department’s International Visitor Program. Following remarks by Schindler Factory Museum Director Dr. Michal Niezabitowski and Polish Foreign Minister Radoslaw Sikorski, Clinton addressed an audience that included Rabbi Michael Schudrich, Poland’s Chief Rabbi, and Stanislaw Cardinal Dziwisz, Archbishop of Krakow. She then announced the U.S. intent to donate to the Auschwitz-Birkenau Foundation, an organization set up last year by the International Auschwitz Council to finance the long-term conservation of the camp grounds and archival records.
