      Report: Polish Anti-Semites to Protest MKs During Visit

      An anti-Semitic Polish group calling itself "Defenders of the Cross" has announced that it will demonstrate opposite a delegation of Knesset members when they visit the Auschwitz concentration camp, next week, in conjunction with the international Holocaust remembrance day, according to a Tuesday-morning report by Ma'ariv.

      In a video clip posted on the Internet, members of the group said they are protesting what they called "violation of Polish sovereignty and holy Polish land", as well as attempts by the Knesset members "to rewrite history and distort reality." They claim that the Auschwitz death camp was mainly used for the murder of Polish prisoners, while the Jews were taken to nearby Birkenau.
