Two controversial German rappers at the center of an anti-Semitism scandal are planning a visit to the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp memorial.
The German daily Bild reported that rappers Kollegah and Farid Bang have accepted an invitation issued by the International Auschwitz Committee.
"We have accepted the invitation," rapper Farid Bang confirmed to the paper. The visit is expected to take place on June 3.
The date had been suggested by Christoph Heuber, vice president of the committee, because both German and Polish youths will be helping workers at the memorial that day.
Heuber said that the rappers' decision to visit Auschwitz-Birkenau is "a signal to their many fans."
