The Poles are getting worried that people will forget who set up death camps in their country:

The United Nations has accepted Poland’s request to rename the Auschwitz death camp on its list of World Heritage sites to make clear it was run by Germans not Poles, the Polish government announced on Wednesday.

Auschwitz and the linked Birkenau camp in Poland would be known as “Auschwitz-Birkenau Nazi German Concentration and Death Camp”, Culture Minister Kazimierz Ujazdowski told a news conference in Warsaw.

But a spokesman for the Paris-based UN education and culture arm UNESCO said he could not confirm the news. Last year, Poland announced prematurely that the change had been made.

“UNESCO has made a decision as a result of Poland’s request to change the name of Auschwitz Birkenau to reflect the historical truth,” Mr. Ujazdowski said, with the Israeli ambassador at his side. “This is a victory for truth.”

More than a million Jews from across Europe were killed by the Nazis in Auschwitz and Birkenau in occupied Poland during the Second World War. Many Poles worry that the world is forgetting the camps were set up by the Germans.

Warsaw points to references to “Polish gas chambers” or the “Polish concentration camps” in world media as evidence Poles are wrongly portrayed as collaborators with the Nazis in killing Jews.

Last year, Poland formally asked UNESCO to change the camp’s name. Jewish organizations and Israel backed the plan after initial reservations. UNESCO’s World Heritage Committee has been meeting in New Zealand.

  • about 20 years ago I was in a swedish language course for immigrants. At one point each of us was required to give a presentation of our country for the class. We had many poles in the class and they presented a pretty comphrehensive picture of poland by dividing up their presentations into culture, history, geography etc. During the question and answer period a very puzzled me asked my polish classmates why they made absolutely no mention of jews, not even in regards to world war two. The answer was that “jews are not polish”.
    Like most of europe the poles, as a group, may not have been the engineers of the camps but they were, and are ,surely great enablers.

  • Hi, Celtic blood!

    First, the term “hook-nosed” should be hyphenated. Second, “bitches” must be spelled with a “t.” You should begin a sentence (even if it’s merely the repetition of the subject of someone else’s sentence) with a capital letter, e.g., “Gas chambers??” Also, you should try for consistency in the spelling of “chambers” (go with your first effort– there’s no “n” in the word.

    If you follow these suggestions, people will merely think of you as an ignorant, inbred bigot, as opposed to an ignorant, inbred semi-literate bigot.

    Cheers!

  • Well, David I could not care less about what you think of me or my writing skills.
    I admit I typed pretty quickly so this negligence of proper writing and semantically correct sentence structure probably “spoiled” my “good impression”, yet I definetly do not spend my time on this webpage to win a popularity contest.

    Don´t worry, your Zio-nuts lies about the Germans “gassing” 6 Million Jews will be exposed. Oh wait a minute, wasn´t it 8 million ? or 12 Million ????? And wasn´t it OVENS and not Gas chambers ? At least folks like Elie Wiesel are not so sure about that. Also the thousands of jewish soap opera actors called “survivors” who ruin the minds of American schoolchildren also create their own versions of the Holy-hoax. You know, the more survivors you people throw at the public, the less credible will be all those Auschwitz bedtime stories. More and more people are waking up and join our movement. For all you mass murdering REAL RACIST Zionist criminals, the day of defeat is getting closer.
