I have read the link. The article is another whine about the fact that the PiS government is not falling in line with the narrative that blames Poland for the German-made government. Kudos to PiS.
I meant the German-made Holocaust.
Related: An underground network of locals in Poland self-organize to help migrants who face 'pushbacks' by the govt. The comment is near of an Auschwitz picture. It suggests that Poles were responsible for the Holpocaust and now are responsible for expulsion of illegal and sometimes hostile migrants. The migrants refuse to stay in Poland, they want to Germany, which is illegal according to EU law. BTW - is it legal in the USA to create a network of supporters of illegal migration?
https://theworld.org/stories/2022-02-04/new-monument-poland-sparks-concern-about-holocaust-revisionism Rebecca Rosman from Paris is becoming an expert in Polish matters. This time she criticizes the Maletka memorial. Please consider that the big monument under the title "A new monument in Poland sparks concern about Holocaust revisionism" does not spark any concern, it is a Treblinka monument. The second picture shows the Maletka stone, rather small one.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pwUp4HuSmuk My family lost everything and got no cent. Now people living outside Poland demand their properties. 77 years after the war, after Nazi German destruction of Poland, after Communist nationalisation and destruction. The 'property' is either a ruined shed or a post-war building, whose inhabitants will have to pay ransome.
It is a startling injustice Jerzy.
I have to assume that those pushing this very nasty agenda against Poland know exactly what they are doing and are not going to be swayed by calm, reasoned and balanced arguments such as those contained in your youtube video above Danusha. But thanks for trying. That is all we can do in the face of this - try to get the truth out there without vilifying others or retaliating in kind.The truth will prevail. But only when God's Kingdom is ruling over the earth. Won't this whole wicked system of things on the earth be gone like a bad dream then? Only, unlike a bad dream, it will never return.

Bieganksi becomes more relevant by the minute. This is from the fb page of The Kosciuszko Foundation!"Not many spots are left for the performed reading of "Zagłada" - a new play by Richard Vetere. The event is happening next Thursday, Feb. 10 at the KF in NY, and features Jon Avner, Jennean Farmer, Iza Laskowska, Lou Martini, Jr. & Maja Wampuszyc; directed by Alice Jankell; original music compositions by Rick Baitz. A discussion moderated by Dr. Eva Fogelman will follow the presentation.Zagłada is about a 90-year-old Polish man living in Maspeth, Queens, who is exposed by an African-American journalist as having been a Kapo in Buchenwald. The man shoots at the journalist, is arrested for firing an illegal firearm, and is held at the 112th Precinct by an NYPD Intelligence Bureau Officer. There he is forced to confront his past by a Federal Prosecutor who is driven by a personal vendetta.The event is free and open to the public. Space is limited. Registration is required. In lieu of admission, a $15 donation towards the Kosciuszko Foundation is appreciated. Proof of vaccination is needed to enter."Its beyond satire.
Marian Hemar died OTD 1972. "The bard of Lvov, the troubadour of the London emigration" Hemar's mother was the sister of Stanisław Lem's father.

Richard Vetere"Very odd but the reading tonight of my published play Zaglada is causing some controversy by people who have not read the play. Ironically the play brings up the exact same struggle they want it to. It is sold out at capacity." I bet that many people will assuma that 'Zaglada' is a better name than 'Shoah'. Do not expect too much from your viewers.
Am right in thinking that he is saying all us Poles/Polonians are too "dumb" to understand the play?And who is Richard Vetere - and where is he saying this?
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_Vetere He seems to be known.

There is a book M. Hopfinger, T. Żukowski (eds.), The Holocaust Bystander in Polish Culture, 1942–2015. The 'bystanding' of my family included working in Siberian forest, years in German prison for women, death of family of four, death of a military pilot, death of twp men murdere4d by NKVD.

http://stagebiz.com/interview-with-richard-vetere-a-working-artist/ I have a new play I am developing titled Zaglada, which in Polish means genocide. I just did a reading of it with Matt Penn directing and I am developing it in the Actors Studio playwright/directors unit with Maja Wampuszyc directing. I have been thinking about the play for twenty years. It is based on several true stories of men and women who were concentration camp guards who lied on their passports when they came here and decades later are discovered. Knowing Maja and how her father family members were killed in camps and how her father survived both Nazis and Russians during and after the war helped in my research. Also, oddly enough some of these camp guards lived in the Polish neighborhood next to where I grew up in Queens. I hope to get the play up and running after I do some rewriting.
I saw the video. I'm planning on sharing it.
