By Melanie Phillips.. If Poland wants to demonstrate it really did have nothing to do with the Holocaust, it’s going a mighty strange way about it. A new law passed by the Polish parliament criminalizing any suggestion that Poland was involved in the Holocaust has produced a crisis in Polish-Jewish relations described as the most serious since the fall of communism in 1989. Poland is well known for its sensitivity to the false description of Nazi concentration camps on its soil as being “Polish camps.” But the new law goes much further. [Photo top right: Emanuel Ringelblum (1900 – 1944) | Photo The JDC Archives]. It makes it a criminal offence for anyone to accuse Poland of being “responsible or complicit in the Nazi crimes committed by the Third German Reich… or other crimes against peace and humanity or war crimes…”

This is in effect to criminalize telling the truth about Polish history. For there is ample evidence of Polish complicity in the extermination of the Jews.

Poles often shopped Jews to the Nazis; the historian and Holocaust victim Emanuel Ringelblum noted that Polish police “played a most lamentable role in the extermination of the Jews of Poland… [and were] enthusiastic executors of all the German directives regarding the Jews.” Read the full story.
