Angela Merkel refuses to comment on Poland's holocaust law

Morawiecki's comments echo those of the influential head of the governing right-wing Law and Justice (PiS) party, Jaroslaw Kaczynski. This sickness is anti-Semitism.

"President Moon asked for Poland's continued support so the mood for dialogue and reconciliation between the South and the North will continue until after the end of the Olympics and develop into dialogue on peaceful resolution of the North Korean nuclear issue", Cheong Wa Dae said.

In Israel, home to Holocaust scholars and families of survivors with roots in Poland, some fear the Polish speech law will allow the government to whitewash the role some individual Poles had in the deaths of the occupied country's Jews.

The United States has similarly expressed concern over the law.

The Polish Embassy in Switzerland Tweeted at Israeli and Jewish journalists and publications- including The Jerusalem Post and this reporter- a letter that reads: "Dear Israeli journalists, Dear Colleagues, it is my honor to invite you to a ceremony of unveiling of a commemorative plaque dedicated to the memory of Polish diplomats - Juliusz Kühl (1913-1985) and Konstanty Rokicki (1899-1958)- which will take place at noon, on February 12th at Thunstrasse 21, in Bern, Switzerland".


One key paragraph of the bill states: "Whoever claims, publicly and contrary to the facts, that the Polish Nation or the Republic of Poland is responsible or co-responsible for Nazi crimes committed by the Third Reich... or for other felonies that constitute crimes against peace, crimes against humanity, or war crimes, or whoever otherwise grossly diminishes the responsibility of the true perpetrators of said crimes - shall be liable to a fine or imprisonment for up to three years". Because who operated the crematoria? It is an inspiring list, filled with stories of extraordinary honour and true sacrifice in the face of evil: Matylda Getter, the Catholic nun who rescued as many as 550 Jewish children from the Warsaw Ghetto; Jan Karski, the resistance fighter who first alerted U.S. President Franklin Roosevelt to the Holocaust unfolding across the ocean; Maria Kotarba, the "Angel of Auschwitz", who smuggled food, medicine and messages into the death camp; Janusz Korczak, the orphanage director who refused to abandon his charges and ultimately died at Treblinka.

Andrzej Zybertowicz, a Nicolaus Copernicus University sociology professor who also serves as a presidential adviser, called Israel's opposition to the new law "anti-Polish" and said it shows the Mideast nation is "clearly fighting to keep the monopoly on the Holocaust".

"Some people explain that the brutal crackdown on Palestinians or Hezbollah is also a form of releasing". "Apart from everything, the Holocaust is also a monstrous humiliation - that they did not fight, did not resist", added the advisor, Andrzej Zybertowicz".

"Many Jews engaged in denunciation, collaboration during the war".

"The Holocaust can never be repeated again". They are to make them never passive and defenseless again.
