On Thursday, the first lady paid a visit to the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington in advance of International Holocaust Remembrance Day.

"My thoughts and prayers are with the people whose lives and families were broken by the horrors of the Holocaust", said Trump in a statement released following her visit.

"Thank you @HolocaustMuseum for a powerful & moving tour that honors the millions of innocent lives lost, and educates us on the tragedies and effects of the holocaust", FLOTUS tweeted, along with photos of her touring the museum.

Mrs. Trump had originally been scheduled to join her husband at an economic summit in Davos, Switzerland, this week.
