    Honestly, while fucked up and pretty hilarious I'm quite impressed on how that was handled.

    New Polish makes it illegal to call the concentration camps in Poland "Polish concentration camps" but rather "German concentration camps". Which is usual language usage in German anyway.

    Israel however is outraged.

    I love how the video obviously ignores the rampant antisemitism in Poland at the time.

    It goes furthern than that, doesn't it ?
    Any statements implying that any polish citizens or their government were somehow involved in the holocaust are illegal and punishable by fines.

    And like you said antisemitism was rampant among polish catholics at that time.

    This is the text of the law, as per The Times of Israel.

    https://www.timesofisrael.com/full-t...t-legislation/

    It talks about the Republic of Poland and the Polish Nation, no idea if it extends down to individual Poles.

    Of course the current Polish Government's politics taint whatever laws they pass, no matter what the law itself states.

    Jail, not fines

    And it's vague on purpose to shup up anyone wanting to talk about shittier things in our past. But wait! It gets better! The law states foreigners can be prosecuted too!

    These people are shit version of Midas.

    That ATC video I linked the other day. This is the same dude flying a plane. I'm fairly pissed but I was laughing a load, it gets better all the way through:

    "I think we could all do with sitting back a bit and detaching ourselves from the situation to really think about how these issues reflect on our future and how we discuss them here and be a bit less aggressive or defensive because everyone has a complicated set of circumstances that has led the to place importance on particular issues and it doesn't meany any of them is less valid, we just need to look at the broader picture"

    This. It's pretty disgusting. But while we are at the business end of fingerpointing for the Holocaust, how many Jews where able to flee Germany to other states? How the world and especially the western world turned a blind eye, and only let just a minuscule (if at all) of Jews into their country as refugees is pretty damning. Its actually a bit weird why this factor is somehow overlooked when the story of Hitlers persecution of minorities are told.

    It only became clear how systematic the Nazis were at this by the final months of the war in '45, when Allied soldiers started finding concentration camps. That turned the perception of defeating the Nazi regime from one of 'stop these power hungry maniacs' to 'holy shit these guys are monsters'. Post war, the stories of Jews that managed to flee Germany in time seemed happy fairytales compared to what happened to those who didn't get out. In that light, what other countries did, or failed to do before the war, seemed insignificantly malevolent, and was then forgotten. And that forgetfulness gave new life to this Nazi idiocy that is rearing its ugly head again. History's lessons are not being learned, or are actively dismissed in the hubris of our time.

    The Allied governments had it in written reports by 1942 what was going on. When Germany annexed Austria, the Austrian Jews became stateless, a clear sign that something really bad was going on. In 1941 H.R. Knickerbocker (a journalist that reported from Berlin on Hitler's rise to power until 1933 when he was deported) explicitly mentions the extermination of Polish Jews. Denmark was invaded in 1940 and the government tipped off by a German diplomat as to what would happen to the Jews. They sent 95% of their Jews to Sweden just in time. You don't do that when you think that nothing bad will happen. 32 countries held a conference in 1938 on the Jewish refugee problem in Evian. All but the Dominican Republic of all places decided against accepting Jewish refugees. And even they only took 100k.

    Ma favorite part:
    In November 1938, two weeks after Kristallnacht, United States Secretary of the Interior Harold L. Ickes proposed the use of Alaska as a "haven for Jewish refugees from Germany and other areas in Europe where the Jews are subjected to oppressive restrictions." Resettlement in Alaska would allow the refugees to bypass normal immigration quotas, because Alaska was a territory and not a state. That summer Ickes had toured Alaska and met with local officials to discuss improving the local economy and bolstering security in a territory viewed as vulnerable to Japanese attack. Ickes thought European Jews might be the solution.
    It was willful blindness by the rest of the world.

    How is that disproving his point? Deportations, becoming stateless, ghettos etc were known. But noone expected what they found while liberating death camps. I think at worst they thought these were regular labour, pow etc analogs. And then the gates opened.
