President Muhammadu Buhari Tuesday visited the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum, in Oświęcim, Poland, where he paid tribute to Holocaust victims.

The evil that men do lives after them; the good is oft interred with their bones.  

The President also laid a wreath at Block 11 of the museum, known as the ‘‘Death block.’’ Here, according to an epitaph in the Block: ”Male and female prisoners from all parts of the camp complex where held in this building…following brutal interrogations, they were in most cases sentenced to death by shooting.”

Later and shortly before leaving the Museum, which includes the Nazi concentration camps Auschwitz I and Auschwitz II-Birkenau, President Buhari, fielding questions from State House Correspondents traveling with him, described those fanning embers of discord in Nigeria as ”illiterates and ignorant.”
