Roman Catholic officials, honoring a Jewish request, will remove a Carmelite convent from the former Nazi death camp in Auschwitz, Poland. "We believe Auschwitz should remain a symbol and a monument to horror and that no specific religion should settle there," said Tullia Zevi, president of Italy's Union of Jewish Communities. Zevi and other European Jewish leaders met with four Roman Catholic cardinals who agreed to move the convent within two years. An interreligious center will be established outside the camp.
