On Jan. 26, the eve of International Holocaust Remembrance Day, the Polish parliament voted in favor of a bill making it illegal to accuse Poland of complicity in Nazi crimes.

This caused immediate outrage around the world [Ron: Really? Who by? What business is it of people "around the world" ie NOT citizens of Poland?] and nowhere more so than in a country that has been, until now, a close ally of Poland: Israel. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu described the bill as “distortion of the truth, the rewriting of history and the denial of the Holocaust.[Ron: really?! Try reading: Record of all Prisoners in Auschwitz Concentration Camp from May of 1940 through December of 1944.- http://abundanthope.net/pages/Political_Information_43/Official_German_Record_of_all_Prisoners_in_Auschwi_2737.shtml And: OFFICIAL RECORDS FROM INTERNATIONAL RED CROSS PROVE "HOLOCAUST" WAS A FRAUD - Repost. See: http://abundanthope.net/pages/Political_Information_43/OFFICIAL-RECORDS-FROM-INTERNATIONAL-RED-CROSS-PROVE-HOLOCAUST-WAS-A-FRAUD---Repost.shtml And: HOLOCAUST DEPROGRAMMING COURSE II. See: http://abundanthope.net/pages/Political_Information_43/HOLOCAUST-DEPROGRAMMING-COURSE-II.shtml].

And yet, 10 days later, Poland’s president, Andrzej Duda, signed the bill into law retorting that “the historic truth is that there was no systematic institutionalized participation among Poles [in the [Ron: Fraudulent and mythical] Holocaust].”

What is happening? Why, over 70 years since the end of the Second World War, is this argument taking place?

I am a sociologist who has studied controversies around the memory of the Holocaust in Poland. For me, this dispute is more than a crisis in Polish-Jewish relations. It is, above all, a crisis in Poland’s national identity.[Ron: No it isn't. It is a crisis for the Jews whose heinous Blood Libel of the German nation is starting to unravel.].

The memory of World War II in Poland

This is not the first time the Poles have legislated against what they see as defamation of Poland’s record in World War II, but it is certainly the most wide-reaching. Under this new law, the punishment for people claiming that “the Polish Nation or the Republic of Poland is responsible or co-responsible for Nazi crimes committed by the Third Reich” carries a possible prison sentence of up to three years.

[Ron: A mere bagatelle compared to the larger prison sentences and societal penalties prescribed by the Jews in many countrie for questioning ANY of the absurd fables about the Holohoax promulgated by Jews for power and profit.].

The timing of the vote was no accident. The government used the occasion of International Holocaust Remembrance Day as a platform to denounce the misnomer “Polish death camps” that some - including former President Barack Obama - have used to refer to Nazi concentration camps in occupied Poland.

The Polish government, along with other Polish organizations, has been fighting the use of that expression in foreign media for several years, and with considerable success. Most American newspapers and other major media outlets have updated their stylebooks to stop those words being used.

Nevertheless, given the growing controversy, the German minister of foreign affairs took it upon himself to declare that the Germans bore the entire responsibility for the extermination camps. But then he added that “the actions of individual collaborators do not alter that fact.” [Ron: Germany has been covertly occupied and controlled by Jews using the US military since May 1945. accordingly, admissions of german culpability for the false and fraudulently claimed Holohoax is moot.].

And therein lies the rub.

Many Poles find it difficult to accept they could have played a role in the Holocaust. That is because, unlike many other nations, the Polish state did not collaborate with the Nazis. Considered an inferior race by the Nazis, Poles were targeted for cultural extermination to facilitate German expansion to the East. Polish elites were systematically murdered. Tens of thousands of Poles were imprisoned in concentration camps or were forced into slave labor.

Poland’s losses in World War II were enormous: Approximately 6 million Polish citizens were killed in the war, over half of whom were Jewish. [Ron: this is a Jewish LIE. Many Jews in Poland fled to the Soviet union ahead of the German military advances. If fact there were only ever about three million Jews in ALL of German occupied Europe during WWII and most of them survived the War because they were protected from Allied fire bombing of German cities by being held in INTERNMENT work camps in the countryside. Read the Red Cross report referenced above.]. Warsaw was left in ruins, and its 1944 uprising alone cost the lives of about 150,000 citizens.

The dominant Polish narrative of World War II is, therefore, about victimhood, which fits squarely into its broader national mythology of martyrdom.

Adam Mickiewicz (1798-1855) Unknown

Repeatedly invaded by its powerful neighbors, the Polish state disappeared from the European map for over a century – from 1795 to 1918. Poland’s national bard, the 19th century poet Adam Mickiewicz, described his country as a “Christ among nations.” In this telling Poles are a chosen people, innocent sufferers at the hands of evil oppressors.

“Revelations” of crimes committed against Jews by Poles tarnish this narrative and shake Polish national identity to its core.

Narrative shock

The fact is, however, as historians have shown, crimes committed against Jews by Poles were much more prevalent and widespread than most people realized.

Perhaps the most controversial and impactful research is that of the Polish-born Princeton University professor, Jan T. Gross.

In his 2000 book “Neighbors,” Gross recounts in painful detail the violent murders of Jews by their ethnically Polish neighbors in the small town of Jedwabne on July 10, 1941.

The book marked a watershed in the public debate about Polish-Jewish relations.

On July 10, 2001, roughly a year after the publication of Gross’ book, the Polish government acknowledged the murders and erected a monument at the site where several hundred Jews were forcibly brought to a barn and burned alive. Although the monument’s inscription fails to explicitly indicate that it was ethnic Poles and not Germans who committed the crime, the official apology by then-President Aleksander Kwaśniewski was unequivocal. “Here in Jedwabne,” he said, “citizens of the Republic of Poland died at the hands of other citizens of the Republic of Poland.”

Such was the shock the story of Jedwabne caused that it is possible to distinguish between Poland “before and after” the appearance of Gross’ book. As leading Catholic journalist Agnieszka Magdziak Miszewska put it: “Facing up to the painful truth of Jedwabne is … the most serious test that we Poles have had to confront in the last decade.”

[Ron: Sooo, when are the Jews going to face up to the painful truth that global Jewry started WWII by declaring war on Germany in March 1933? And the painful truth that in 1939 Bolshevik Jews tortured and murdered some 62,000 ethnic Germans left under Polish rule in the Danzig Corridor area by the Versailles Treaty,  causing Hitler to invade Poland to save the remaining ethnic Germans there? And what about the painful truth that Bolshevik Jews organised the Jews' Coup mislabelled as the Russian Revolution in 1917 and proceeded, as Alexandr Solzhenitsyn said: to murder 66 million Russians. Not satisfied with that Stalin and Kaganovich then starved to death 10 million Ukrainian Christians in the 1930s ie at the same time as global Jewry declared war on Germany and organised a global boycott designed to starve Germans. I could go on, but you get the picture...].

Law and Justice’s politics of history

It is that test, arguably, that the ruling Law and Justice party is failing.

In the battle over Polish collective memory, the party has been promoting the stories of the Poles who rescued Jews – and who are honored by Israel as the “Righteous Among Nations” – by creating museums and monuments in their name.

Through the new “Holocaust Law,” the government is, in effect, trying to repress knowledge of crimes committed against Jews by Poles. The defense of the law, however, goes one step further. In a remarkable case of what I would describe as manipulating the message, Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki issued a video statement claiming that it is the Poles who are the guardians of historical truth and fighters against hatred. [Ron: Whether that is true or not, the Jews are CERTAINLY NOT "guardians of historical truth". The reason that Poles and other peoples in the Baltic countries, Eastern Europe and the Ukraine killed Jews during WWII would have been because of the murder and mayhem perpetrated by Jews upon those Christian populations in the years prior to Operation Barbarossa.].

And yet, the same politicians remain silent when their supporters express anti-Semitic and anti-refugee views. [Ron: WTF?! What right has this US citizen got to say this?] On Feb. 5, for example, demonstrators impatient for President Duda to sign the Holocaust law gathered in front of the Presidential Palace chanting anti-Semitic slogans and demanding that he “remove [his] yarmulke and sign the law!” [Ron: WHY is a Jew President of Poland?! Not only are Jews only a tiny minority of the Polish population BUT Jews have demanded and stolen their so-called Israeli homeland from the Palestinians. WHY are Jews still politically controlling Poland and Germany and many other nations today when they have their own country?].

The president did sign the law, but he also sent it to the country’s constitutional court for examination.[Ron: how many Jews sit on the Polish Constitutional Court? Shouldn't they RECUSE themselves?]

Those Poles opposed to the law – and there are many, judging by the number of [Jew controlled?] organizations and public figures denouncing it and the number of petitions circulatinghope that it will be deemed unconstitutional because it represses freedom of speech and could significantly curtail academic research. [Ron: Sooo, WHY isn't this academic author screaming about the Jew created laws making it a crime punishable by extended imprisonment to QUESTION anything about the HoloHoax in Germany and many other European countries?].

Regardless of the ultimate outcome, however, the government’s politics of history will continue to be waged on many other fronts. What is at stake, in my view, is nothing less than the definition of Polish national identity. [Ron: The Jews have destroyed the identity of the German volk and are in the process of destroying the national identity of Swedes and many other European nations. WHY isn't that a concern for this author?]. This is why, for all the international outrage, the controversy about the Holocaust law is hottest inside Poland, among Poles who are now debating what it means to be Polish and where Poland is going. [Ron: The Polish people are rejecting the refugees being foisted on them by the Jew centric EU AND the attempts by Jews to replace chriatianity with Holocaustianity.  that means they are heading in the right direction.].
