Auschwitz, Poland—Pope Francis walks through Auschwitz's notorious gate with the sign “Arbeit macht frei” (Work sets you free) during his visit to the former Nazi death camp on July 29. After praying in silence at the site where 1.5 million people were slaughtered, most of them Jews, the pope said the same things were still happening in wars around the world today. “Lord, have pity on your people. Lord, forgive so much cruelty,” he wrote in a commemorative book at the camp.
