PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — DeSean Jackson has accepted an invitation from a 94-year-old Holocaust survivor to visit Auschwitz, a WWII concentration camp in Poland. The Eagles’ wide receiver accepted Edward Mosberg’s invitation during a recent Zoom video call.


“Today I had an opportunity to speak with 94 year old holocaust survivor Mr. Edward Mosberg,” Jackson posted on Instagram. “Thank you Mr. Mosberg for your valuable time and insight today . Im [sic] taking this time to continue with educating myself and bridging the gap between different cultures, communities & religions. LOVE 2 ALL!!!!! TO BE CONTINUED.”
