An international foundation established to preserve the Auschwitz-Birkenau memorial
in Poland has fallen short of its fundraising goal, but still plans to begin repair work there, a spokesman said Thursday.
The site includes the
barracks, gas chambers and other structures of the former death camp,
where Germany's Nazis killed some 1.5 million people, mostly Jews,
during World War II.
