Survivors walk under the sign saying "Work makes you free" after paying tribute to fallen comrades at the former Auschwitz concentration camp in Oswiecim, Poland, on January 27, 2015Seventy years after the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau, ageing survivors gathered at the site synonymous with the Holocaust on Tuesday as world leaders sounded the alarm over a fresh wave of anti-Semitism. Telling French Jews that "France is your homeland," Hollande described as "unbearable" the rise in anti-Semitic attacks in France, underscored by the Islamist killings at a kosher supermarket in Paris earlier this month. Anti-Semitic acts in France, home to Europe's largest Jewish population, doubled in 2014 to 851 from the previous year, France's main Jewish group CRIF said Tuesday.

Men play in the snow along 7th Ave during a storm in Times Square, New YorkBy Scott Malone and Jill Serjeant BOSTON/NEW YORK (Reuters) - A blizzard swept across the northeastern United States, dropping more than a foot (30 cm) of snow but falling short of more dire predictions that sent workers and students home, halted thousands of flights and prompted New York officials to ban cars from roads and shut down subway trains. As day broke on Tuesday, the leaders of New York City, New York state and New Jersey began lifting travel bans imposed the night before, when forecasters warned of a potentially "historic" blizzard that could dump as much as 3 feet (90 cm) of snow and paralyze the East Coast. The National Weather Service lifted its blizzard warning for New York City, downgrading it to a winter storm warning, but cautioned that snow could fall off and on until midnight. "We thought we were going to get something a lot bigger," New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio told CNN.
