PARIS — A delegation of envoys — including many from Muslim countries — plans to visit the former Nazi extermination camp at Auschwitz on Tuesday in a trip billed as the first of its kind.

With UN backing, the trip has been organized by The Aladdin Project — a group formed in 2009 to raise awareness about the Holocaust and counter racism, Islamophobia and intolerance.

The latest visit was to include officials from Egypt and Tunisia, but recent anti-government protests there caused them to cancel.

Tuesday's event will bring about 150 present and former government chiefs, ambassadors and academics from countries such as Turkey and Morocco on an educational and largely symbolic mission to the former World War II camp in southern Poland.
