POLISH PM: 

THERE WERE 

JEWISH 

PERPETRATORS 

OF THE 

HOLOCAUST

BY 

 FEBRUARY 17, 2018 14:56

Morawiecki said that 

"we do not deny the fact 

that there were 

Polish perpetrators 

as well as 

there were 

Jewish perpetrators 

or Ukrainian perpetrators..."

Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki acknowledged on Saturday that there were Polish perpetrators in the Holocaust, but said that in the same way there were also Jewish and Ukrainian perpetrators.

Mateusz was responding to a question posed to him at the Munich Security Conference by Israeli journalist Ronen Bergman, on the heels of the new contentious law which criminalizes talk of Poles’ complicity in Nazis’ crimes.

Mateusz was responding to a question posed to him at the Munich Security Conference by Israeli journalist Ronen Bergman, on the heels of the new contentious law which criminalizes talk of Poles’ complicity in Nazis’ crimes.

Bergman spoke of his mother who survived the Holocaust in Poland, questioning whether if he were to tell her story in Poland today, he would be breaking the law and could be penalized. He told the prime minister that he was "drawing more fire" to the subject of Polish complicity, drawing applause from the audience. 

Morawiecki responded that Poland will not punish people who said that there were Polish perpetrators, as “we do not deny the fact that there were Polish perpetrators as well as there were Jewish perpetrators or Ukrainian perpetrators..."

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu slammed as "outrageous" Morawiecki's comparison of Polish and Jewish actions during the Holocaust.
