Yet another Jewish person is surprised by a trip to "the world's largest Jewish cemetery," a.k.a. Poland.
"A trip to Poland is usually a journey to the Holocaust, to the world’s largest Jewish cemetery and scene of unimaginable catastrophe...The Holocaust is everywhere in this beautiful, lusciously green country. It permeates the ground and the air"
Does anybody at any editorial office at any Jewish publication know that it is offensive to refer to an entire country as "the world's largest Jewish cemetery"?
When will this cohort of authors allow Poland to be a country again?
Yes of course we acknowledge the Holocaust and every other historical catastrophe but it is wrong to deny an entire nation any other identity.
