Before heading to a formal dinner, Trump visited the capital's memorial to the 6 million Jews murdered by the Nazis. Trump converted to Judaism herself ahead of her 2009 marriage to Jared Kushner, also a White House adviser.

During the 25-minute visit, Trump walked slowly through the field filled with concrete slabs. She was accompanied by US Embassy personnel and a strong police guard to keep curious tourists and others at a distance.

She paused occasionally to look at the slabs, meant to symbolize the chaos of the Holocaust, and donned sunglasses before emerging on the other side of the monument to a crush of cameras and onlookers.
