WARSAW, Poland (AP) — Thousand of young Jews and Holocaust survivors are marching at the former Nazi death camp of Auschwitz to remember those who perished in the Holocaust and honor Poland's late president.

Some 10,000 people from around the world are walking between the Auschwitz and Birkenau sections of the death camp where the Nazis killed more than 1 million people, mostly Jews, during World War II.

Many marchers are wearing black armbands, and black ribbons top their white-and-blue Israeli flags, in memory of Poland's President Lech Kaczynski and his wife Maria who were killed Saturday with other top officials en route to WWII-era observances in western Russia.
