The Duchess of Cornwall will attend commemorations in Poland to mark the 75th anniversary of the liberation of former Nazi German concentration and extermination camp Auschwitz-Birkenau.
Her Royal Highness will attend a service at the former Auschwitz-Birkenau camp on Monday 27th January 2020, International Holocaust Remembrance Day.
Approximately 200 Auschwitz and Holocaust survivors from the United Kingdom and several other European countries, the United States, Canada, Israel and Australia will take part in the service.

In 2016, The Duchess of Cornwall visited The Holocaust Survivors Centre, London, and met with survivors supported by the centre and Jewish Care.
