It Will Soon Be A Crime To Blame Poland For The Holocaust

The law, passed by Poland's Senate earlier this month, imposes fines or a maximum three-year prison terms on anyone who publicly refers to Nazi German death camps located in Poland as Polish. He said there had been no systematic collaboration of Polish institutions.

Israel has repeatedly expressed outrage, claiming that it will stifle Holocaust discussion and allow for the whitewashing of crimes such as the denunciation and killing of Jews by Poles.

Ukraine's resolution called on Duda not to sign the bill into law as it could harm Polish-Ukrainian relations.

"After the examination of the situation and of the bill I made a decision to sign this draft law and in this regard, it will come into force".

The son of a Holocaust survivor and Polish history professor Jan Grabowski said, "The Germans were able to mobilize segments of the Polish society to take part in their plan to hunt down the Jews and help them carry out their Final Solution". US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on Tuesday said in a statement that the law when in effect would "adversely affects freedom of speech and academic inquiry".

Duda said during a visit to Israel previous year he was made aware of expectations that the legislation should not block artistic or historical work on the Holocaust. However Poland's government spokeswoman said there would be no such visit.

He told the Gazeta Wyborcza daily the tensions could potentially affect Warsaw's talks with the USA on an unprecedented multi-billion dollar defence purchase of a US-made Patriot anti-missile defence system.

The dispute over the "blame" law has deeply wounded the relationship between Poland and Israel. "We are all exhausted with this issue", Foreign Minister Czaputowicz said.

Duda's top foreign policy adviser Krzysztof Szczerski told public television TVP that the law should be sent to the Constitutional Tribunal within a week.

"It seems inconceivable that an European Union member state can be permitted to whitewash history by imposing draconian legislation that can imprison people for holding an alternative view on what happened during Europe's darkest days", Margolin added.

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said on February 1 that he was "deeply concerned" by the legislation.

Moreover, whilst the concentration camps were the site where Jewish people were killed in the millions, the murdering of Poles of Christian and other denominations (numbering in the hundreds of thousands) should not be discounted or forgotten.

"It was our country that organised these mass murders and no one else".

"Individual collaborators" in Nazi-occupied regions during World War II did not change the fact that Germany was responsible for the Holocaust, Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel said in a Foreign Office statement on Saturday.

Last week, Israel's embassy in Warsaw denounced what it said was a "wave of anti-Semitic statements" sweeping across Poland, many of them directed at the Israeli ambassador, Anna Azari.
