 Dignitaries from the Muslim world are paying respects to the millions of Jews and others who were systematically killed in the Holocaust.

About 150 people, including the Senegalese president, former heads of government and Arab world ambassadors are traveling on Tuesday to the former Nazi extermination camp of Auschwitz in Poland to learn first-hand about crimes perpetrated there during World War II.

The mission is organized by UNESCO, Paris City Hall and a group aiming to fight anti-Semitism and fear of Islam.
