On May 2 in Krakow, Poland, eight U.S. government officials came together to lead, for the first time ever, an official delegation to the annual March of the Living at the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camps.

The three co-chairs of this delegation were U.S. Ambassadors to Poland, Georgette Mosbacher; to Israel David Friedman; and to Germany Richard Grenell. 

Thousands of students from around the world, including almost 6,000 from the U.S. alone, will participate in the march and will learn firsthand the commitment that the U.S. government brings to the task of countering anti-Semitism.

The rest of the delegation includes U.S. Ambassadors from Spain (Duke Buchan III), the Holy See (Callista Gingrich), and Switzerland (Edward McMullen, Jr.); as well as the Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism Elan Carr; and the Chairman of the U.S. Commission for the Preservation of America’s Heritage Abroad Paul Packer.
