February 17, 1990|From Times Staff and Wire Reports

A groundbreaking ceremony will be held next week for a religious center to replace a controversial convent on the grounds of the Nazi death camp at Auschwitz, the World Jewish Congress said in Washington. A joint announcement of the dedication ceremony will be made following a meeting Monday between Poland's Prime Minister Tadeusz Mazowiecki and Jewish Congress President Edgar M. Bronfman. The center will be located several hundred yards from the death camp site, which has been enshrined as a memorial to the 2 million Jews and other victims killed by the Nazis.
