Israeli Opposition Calls for Recalling Poland Ambassador Amid Holocaust Bill Row

Israel Education Ministry devises lessons emphasizing Poland's involvement in the Holocaust

Israelis, including Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, reacted furiously to the law, seeing it as an attempt by Poland to re-write history and even deny the Holocaust.

"We have no tolerance for the distortion of the truth and rewriting history or denying the Holocaust", Netanyahu said on Sunday.

The foreign ministry called for a clarification discussion the deputy ambassador of the Polish embassy in Israel.

But Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki rebuffed criticism of the proposed law, saying that the terms "Auschwitz-Birkenau" and "Arbeit Macht Frei" are "not Polish."

"Auschwitz is the most bitter lesson on how evil ideologies can lead to hell on earth". Since 1945, the word has taken on a new and awful meaning: the mass murder of some 6 million European Jews (as well as members of some other persecuted groups, such as Gypsies and homosexuals) by the German Nazi regime during the Second World War.

The measure, meant to apply to both Poles and foreigners, must still pass the Senate before being signed by the president.

"Important Israeli politicians and media are attacking us for the bill".

Some 60 survivors attended the ceremony, which took place at the site where at least 1.1 million people, mostly Jews, were slaughtered by Nazi Germany during World War Two.

The 27th of January marks the liberation of the Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp by Soviet troops in 1945, and since 2005 it is a United Nations designated International Day of Commemoration in memory of the victims of the Holocaust. It is expected to easily pass in the Senate before being signed by the president.

"The extermination camps were set up in Nazi-occupied Poland in order to murder the Jewish people within the framework of the "Final Solution", the center said, referring to the Nazis" plan for the extermination of all European Jews during World War II.

Israeli President Reuven Rivlin, noting that exactly 73 years had passed since the Auschwitz death camp on Polish soil was liberated, cited the words of a former Polish president about how history could not be faked and the truth could not be hidden.

The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington has joined Israel's official Holocaust memorial, Yad Vashem, in denouncing the Polish bill that would bar any mention of Poland's role in the Holocaust.

But it added: "There is no doubt that the term "Polish death camps" is a historical misrepresentation".

"This is a shameful disregard of the truth". It demonized Gross and investigated whether he had slandered Poland by asserting that Poles killed more Jews than they killed Germans during the war.

"It is also a historic fact that the Germans initiated, planned and built the work and death camps in Poland".
