Romney tours site of future Polish Jewish museum
Mitt Romney toured the site of the future Museum of the History of Polish Jews in Warsaw.
The presumptive Republican presidential nominee, completing the third leg of a three-country tour that also included Britain and Israel, on Tuesday met with museum chairman Piotr Wislicki, deputy chairman Marian Turski, interim director Waldemar Dabrowski, exhibition director Barbara Kirshenblatt-Gimblett, and representatives of the museum’s two largest benefactors, the Taube Foundation and the Koret Foundation, Helise Lieberman and Yale Reisner.
Also present during the tour was Romney’s wife, Ann.
The museum, which is to open in 2013, is near the site of the city’s Holocaust-era ghetto.
