Emhoff to visit Poland and Germany amid rising antisemitism


AP White House Correspondent

WASHINGTON (AP) — Vice President Kamala Harris’ husband, Doug Emhoff, is set to visit Poland and Germany this month amid rising antisemitism. Emhoff will mark International Holocaust Remembrance Day and hold meetings aimed at combating antisemitism in the U.S. and worldwide. Emhoff is the first Jewish person to be married to one of the top two nationally elected U.S. officials. Emhoff will visit Krakow, Poland, and stop at the Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp and then will go to Berlin to join a meeting of European special envoys and coordinators working to combat antisemitism. Emhoff was a successful entertainment lawyer in California when his wife was elected vice president. He has said he’s “going to speak out against hate.”
