Poland Appeals to Label Auschwitz as 'German'

Authorities in Poland want to change the name of the Auschwitz concentration camp to officially include the word "German" in the title. Poles hope that will end the problem of Poland being mistaken as the perpetrator.

The change was first discussed last summer. A decision will be made at the UNESCO conference at the end of June.
