A spokesman says Ban Ki-moon plans to make the first-ever visit by a United Nations secretary-general to the infamous Auschwitz death camp in Poland (AGAIN  – THIS IS NOT TRUE AS EXPLAINED ABOVE and needs correction).
“The camp remains the most vivid symbol of the cruelty of Nazi Germany’s genocide of World War II” and that is so.

U.N. spokesman Martin Nesirky announced Tuesday that Ban will visit the camp “to pay tribute to the victims of the Holocaust and to stress the importance of the U.N.’s work for genocide prevention, tolerance and peace.”

More than 1.1 million Jews died in Auschwitz and the adjacent Birkenau death camp in gas chambers or from starvation, disease and forced labor.

Ban will fly to Krakow, Poland, following visits to Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania and will then go on to Warsaw to attend the high-level session of a U.N. conference on climate change.


When this became known – a UN Secretary General first to visit this Holocaust site and this on his way to a Climate Change/Human induced Global Warming that has large effects on human suffering which coincidentally were highlighted by Typhoon Hiylan, we had to make the connection and posted –   www.sustainabilitank.info/#31927

that made the connections – “UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon will visit former extermination camp Auschwitz-Birkenau on November 18, 2013, during the days of the Warsaw Climate Change meeting and the restart of the Geneva Nuclear Iran negotiations.”

now we look forward to follow what  connections the UNSG will make on this very important trip.
So far we appreciate his talking about Latvian Forestry.
