EU Council, German Presidents Attend Polish FM Bartoszewski's Funeral

European Council president Donald Tusk and German President Joachim Gauck are attending the state funeral ceremonies for Wladyslaw Bartoszewski, Poland's former foreign minister and a former Auschwitz prisoner who helped save Jews from the Holocaust. A fragment of Mozart's Requiem opened the funeral Mass on Monday at Warsaw's St. John Arch-Cathedral, as soldiers stood guard by Bartoszewski's coffin covered with Poland's white-and-red national flag.
