Israel donates money for preservation of Auschwitz


WARSAW (AP).- Polish officials say Israel has pledged $1 million to help preserve the former death camp of Auschwitz, which is in a serious state of deterioration.

The Auschwitz-Birkenau state museum said Friday that it received a pledge from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of 3.6 million shekels ($1 million; euro717,000) for a "Perpetual Fund" that will pay for preserving barracks, gas chambers and other evidence of German crimes at the site in Poland.

Officials aim to raise euro120 million ($163 million) for the fund, which would generate annual interest of euro4-5 million for preservation.

Earlier this month Poland pledged euro10 million, joining Germany, the U.S. and others as donors.

With the Polish and Israeli announcements, the fund has more than euro90 million pledged.
