President Obama visited a World War II concentration camp Friday with German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Holocaust survivors Elie Wiesel and Bertrand Herz, the AP reports.

"These sites have not lost their horror with the passage of time," Obama said after seeing crematory ovens, barbed-wire fences and guard towers at Buchenwald. "More than half a century later, our grief and our outrage over what happened have not diminished."

Here is a video of the visit:

The Nazi death camp held 250,000 prisoners during the war, and more than 50,000 died there.

When asked what Iranian President Ahmadinejad could learn from Obama's visit to the Nazi concentration camp, Obama says: "He should make his own visit... I have no patience for people who would deny history."
