Israel Vows Tours to Poland Won't Be Muzzled by Contentious Holocaust Law

US urges Poland to drop Holocaust bill angering Israel

Morawiecki says Poland will "never curb the freedom of the Holocaust debate". We want to fight this lie in every form. That's why we amended the law.

"We would like to use this opportunity to repeat that Israel stands with Poland in using the proper term for the death camps - German Nazi camps", the Embassy statement read. "This truth needs to be protected".

Poland argues that it is fighting against the use of phrases like "Polish death camps" to refer to camps operated by Nazi Germany in occupied Poland during World War II.

In a statement, it said Israel views "with utmost gravity any attempt to challenge historical truth".

Timberlake previews Super Bowl halftime show
Bets on America The Beautiful, National Anthem and Halftime Show compliment Super Bowl Sundays party atmosphere perfectly. However, Timberlake said during a Thursday press conference that there will not be an NSYNC reunion at the Super Bowl .

He said the law passing in the upper house "runs contrary to the spirit of the conversation Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu held with his Polish counterpart Mateusz Morawiecki, in which they agreed to engage in immediate dialogue to reach understandings on the matter".

"On the backdrop of the approval of the bill by the Polish Senate", the ministry said in a statement, "Israel has requested the postponement of the planned visit of the head of the Polish National Security Council". "We are concerned, however, that if enacted this draft legislation could undermine free speech and academic discourse", she added.

Q: Why has Israel come opposed the legislation so strongly? "The authors of this bill have promoted this slander all over the world, and have been successful in it as no one before them". It now awaits the signature of Polish President Andrzej Duda, who supports it.

"The Oswiecim lie is not only denial of German crimes, but also other ways of falsifying history". It was approved by the lower house last week. The law will apply to both Polish citizens and foreigners.

'Bachelor' contestant reported missing by mom that apparently doesn't watch TV
Had officials checked her profile, they may have been able to contact her to verify that she wasn't, in fact, missing. A month later, on December 12, a deputy reached out to Martinez's mother, asking if she had heard from her daughter.

Duda, the Polish president, said this week there was no institutional participation by Poland in the Holocaust, but it did recognize criminal actions toward Jews by some individual Poles. Instead, Zuroff said he believes it would be far more effective for Israel to influence post-Soviet countries, many of whom have defense ties with Israel, and try and persuade their governments that such behavior is unacceptable he said. A year later, Polish MPs recognised as "genocide" the wartime massacre of some 100,000 Poles by Ukrainian nationalists.

Makes me wonder why it took more than 70 years for Poland to attempt to wash itself of any wrongdoing associated with the Holocaust?

Israeli officials have said they are anxious such a law would inhibit research and discussions about the Holocaust.

In his letter, Szczerski noted on Friday that nearly 6 million Polish citizens - "3 million of them Polish Jews" - lost their lives at the hands of the country's German and Soviet invaders during World War II.

WWE SmackDown results, recap: The Sami Zayn, Kevin Owens friendship is imploding
As for the match itself, it was your typical squash, but those look to be coming to an end soon. The match though did end how you would expect, with Nakamura absolutely on fire.

This law is liable to blur historical truths due to limitations it places on expressions regarding the complicity of segments of the Polish population in crimes against Jews committed by its own people, either directly or indirectly, on Polish soil during the Holocaust. Though the camps were a Nazi enterprise, anti-Semitism was rife in Poland before the war, some of it government-sponsored.
