What's going on in Poland?

Postby Upton_O_Goode » Sat Feb 10, 2018 11:39 am

This is really scary. I apologize if there's already a thread on this issue. I just got the memo this morning.

I don't like to stereotype, but I know too many anti-Semitic Poles to make me trust any official attempts to regulate what can be said about the Holocaust. Of course, I didn't like it when Canada forbade Holocaust denial, because I don't want to give the deniers any chance to claim they are persecuted. (They do, anyway, of course.) So I'd be against government regulation in this area anywhere, but especially in Poland.

Rudolf Höß, hanged facing Auschwitz, the camp he commanded, in April 1947. He admitted to 1.1 to 1.5 million murders carried out under his command. Eichmann told him the number was 2.5 million.

Thanks. And never mind, to all who took the trouble to read my post.

Deleted. (Moved to the other thread on this issue.)
