Rabbi Detained After Singing Jewish Songs at Auschwitz

FSWC Reports:


A youth tour guide says he was repeatedly harassed at the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp by Polish guards, who demanded that he and the teens he was escorting stop singing, even when they sang quietly and in a distant part of the camp. It ended in a violent arrest and high fine.  

Rabbi Rafi Ostroff, a veteran youth guide in Poland, visited the former Nazi concentration camp last Friday with training groups of the World Bnei Akiva movement from South Africa and Australia.
