Israel slams Polish Holocaust bill

The main gate of the former Auschwitz extermination camp in Oswiecim Poland with the infamous sign reading 'Work sets you free.' Israel slams Polish Holocaust bill

Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki speaks at a commemoration event in the so-called "Sauna" building at the former Nazi German concentration and extermination camp Auschwitz II-Birkenau, during the ceremonies marking the 73rd anniversary of the liberation of the camp and International Holocaust Victims Remembrance Day, near Oswiecim, Poland, January 27, 2018.

"No law can change the historical truth", the statement continued, "and there is no place to educate the families of Holocaust survivors, who live every day the memory of their loved ones who perished in the inferno".

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu protested a bill passed by the lower house of the Polish parliament which would make it illegal to use terms such as "Polish death camps" to refer to the camps set up by the Nazis.

Under the bill, which is an amendment to an existing Polish law, anyone who suggests Poland was responsible for Nazi crimes could face a prison term.

New laws in Poland make it a criminal offence to suggest the country had anything to do with crimes committed by Nazi Germany.

It is expected to pass in the Senate before being signed by the president.

About six million Jews were killed by the Nazis in World War II, many of them in the death camp of Auschwitz and other death camps in Poland.

The Polish government did not surrender to Nazi Germany and its government did not collaborate with the Nazis. They must be examined and revealed.

Lapid also added that "Poland was an accomplice to the Holocaust" and that hundreds of thousands of Jews died in Poland without meeting "a single German officer".

Lapid used social media to state: "I utterly condemn the new Polish law which tries to deny Polish complicity in the Holocaust.There were Polish death camps and no law can ever change that".

Poland's embassy responded that "your unsupportable claims show how badly Holocaust education is needed, even here in Israel", and added that his tweets were "shameless".

There are also many witness accounts of non-Jewish Poles going to great lengths to help their Jewish compatriots, including many who were killed for doing so.

Israel's Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial issued a statement on Saturday night opposing the Polish legislation and trying to put into historical context the "complex truth" regarding the Polish population's attitude toward its Jews.
