Ivanka Trump, the Jewish daughter of President Trump, laid a wreath at the memorial for the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising in Poland. In what was considered a snub, Trump was the first President i 25 years not to attend the ceremony himself.
Ivanka Trump, a convert to Judaism, placed the wreath at the monument, known as the Monument for the Ghetto Heroes in Warsaw, early Thursday afternoon.
The Monument to the Ghetto Heroes, located approximately a mile east of the Warsaw uprising memorial at Krasinski Square, commemorates specifically Jewish partisans who rose up against the Germans in a doomed uprising in 1943.
The president’s daughter was accompanied by Rabbi Michael Schudrich, the chief rabbi of Poland. After laying a wreath at the Ghetto memorial, she visited the POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews. Read more at The Forward.
