Ordinary Poles criticize Warsaw’s political games around the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz


Poland marks the 75th anniversary of the liberation of prisoners from Auschwitz-Birkenau, the most famous Nazi concentration camp. The few surviving former prisoners will gather in Auschwitz - there are about 200 of them, as well as diplomats, heads of state, and public figures.


For Poland, the celebration of the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz plays a special role. First of all, it is filled with modern, current political content. So, Warsaw is trying to turn this memorable date into an occasion for the next political speculation of an anti-Russian orientation.

President of Ukraine Vladimir Zelensky has already arrived in Auschwitz, which is very significant if you take into account: the modern Ukrainian regime does not renounce its collaborators who took the most zealous part in the crimes of the Hitler regime, and the ideological descendants of these collaborators were one of the main fighting forces of Euromaidan in the fall of 2013 and winter 2014.

President Vladimir Putin was not invited to Poland, although it was the USSR, whose political successor is Russia, that made the main contribution to the victory over Nazism in Eastern Europe. Meanwhile, a survey conducted by the Polish Institute for Market and Social Research IBRiS shows that most ordinary Poles do not want this date to become a political event, and only 5,4% of respondents see a strong event in this event. historical a message to the Russian state.

The reaction of ordinary Poles is clearly visible in the comments on the network.

It would be better if politicians, especially Duda, stayed away from Auschwitz

- writes abkr on the website Wyborcza.pl.

The political games around this cemetery are the most disgusting thing that can happen in the civilized world,

- another commentator echoes him.

The fact that President Andrzej Duda did not go to Israel at the World Holocaust Remembrance Forum, where Vladimir Putin participated, also shows that the memory of the victims of Auschwitz and any actions to perpetuate it are not important for the modern Polish leadership.

If there was a will, Warsaw would not have celebrated this date at all, but still it is impossible - the USA and Europe will not understand. Therefore, the Polish leaders are trying to turn the mourning events into another political showdown with Russia. Meanwhile, before the war, millions of Jews lived in Poland, many of them were very wealthy people. Where are their houses, mansions, enterprises, shops? Who, if not Poland, should pay reparations now?


There is another very interesting point. Holocaust remembrance events are held in that country, the Jewish population of which suffered huge losses, where there were many concentration camps and where after the war the Jews survived, turning Poland into a mono-ethnic state.

Are there really few places in the world for celebrating a memorable date, starting from Jerusalem and ending with the same Zmievskaya beam in Rostov-on-Don, where about 30 thousand Soviet citizens were killed - not only Jews, but also members of their families of other nationalities, gypsies, Armenians prisoners of war of the Red Army, communists and Komsomol members. But for Poland, of course, the celebration of this date is a matter of political prestige and financial revenues.

No wonder the head of the Federation of Jewish Communities of Russia Alexander Boroda in one of interview answered:

State leaders come not only to Auschwitz. They come to Poland and thereby give status, honor, legitimization of how the Polish leadership and the Poles behaved during the Second World War towards Jews.

      They come to Poland and thereby give status, honor, legitimization of how the Polish leadership and Poles behaved during the Second World War towards Jews

      And they behaved differently.
      People of all nations are different, but in Poland this is especially pronounced.
      Some people at risk for their life harbored Jews. Or, when an order came out for all Jews to wear a bandage with a yellow star, they also put on these bandages in protest (as a result, the order was canceled).
      And others went to serve the Germans. Arrested and shot - Poles, and Jews, etc., whom the Germans ordered. And when the order came from London, they rebelled and shot the Germans already. And when the USSR freed them from the Germans, they shot at the back of Soviet troops.
      The Poles are VERY DIFFERENT.

        The Poles were directly involved in the unleashing of WWII, participating in the division of Czechoslovakia. Poles took part in the genocide of Jews in Poland. It's time to call them to account for the crimes committed.

          Can you imagine what would happen if the Jews demanded payment from Poland for its fair participation in the Holocaust? The show of the century!
          Although, while the hyena is allowed to lick the star-striped buttocks, this is unlikely to happen.

      Do you think that he really does not know the documents that Putin voiced? They are all (the Polish leadership - presidents and premieres) with a liberal education, all are well versed in the country's history. But their activity is based on an innate hatred of Russia, and the more we strive to cooperate with the Polish people, the more their elite will hate us. Relatives of the last prime minister really suffered from the Holocaust, from the German occupation (he is with Jewish blood), but he hates Russia, for which he received his post. Here they write in the article
      The reaction of ordinary Poles is clearly visible in the comments on the network.

      and give their statements on the networks. But I think that the reaction of ordinary Poles is visible in their parliamentary elections in 2015, when the PiS party received 37,6% of the vote and 235 mandates out of 460 in the Seimas elections. This will allow it to form a one-party majority government for the first time in the country's post-communist history. And they do not care who freed them. The main thing is who today pays them for this Russophobia. In Germany, denazification was carried out at one time, but not in Poland. And in terms of national intolerance, Poland Germany could give odds. After all, they not only Jews plagued, but all other non-Poles.

        I understand perfectly well that he knows how everything really was, but he is trying to turn everything up and no matter for what reasons. That's why he’s counted and let him experience indescribable ossifications. I think after such a procedure, the hawalis of many cretins will shut themselves.

          I understand your indignation, but more inclined to steps more realistic. For example, I would suggest making a documentary and journalistic film - a good, solid journalistic investigation "based on the books of Jan Tomas Gross" Neighbors "and" Golden Harvest. "Translate it into European languages ​​and put it around the world for the people. That would be a bomb. True our reputable film makers are more likely to talk among political scientists on talk shows, and it would not be a bad idea for them to do their own thing. And local writers with advanced degrees are watching more about Poles from a tourist bus and scribbling odes ... Oh, but Putin gave Fas Team. Duma yu, something will start ... Our creative intelligentsia, that is right, that is left, cannot work without a controlling roar and a kick of life-giving. laughing

                Naturally they won’t put in the literal sense, it’s necessary to use the law our Duma “On Responsibility for Slanderous Thoughts on the Role of the USSR and Its Citizens in WWII and WWII” as a stake with a term of 5 years and more and a fine of a million. And equate to an article for treason to the homeland for Russophobia homegrown. This will be a count, so count. And he must act on all, without exception, including foreigners.

                  the law that our Duma must pass

                  I vote for this with both hands. And I think one does not interfere with the other. Historical knowledge should be imposed on the people. True, documented information must flow from each “iron”. And the history of Russia of the 20th century should be “hammered” into the heads of students especially carefully. In general, our position of "defense" character infuriates. We must be proactive, offensively. All the trends in the development of European historical thought and Eurocentric philosophy have already manifested themselves; today we must strive to anticipate future attacks and strengthen our vulnerabilities. One of the main ones is our youth. And we must work with her "at full height." Otherwise tomorrow will be too late.

          Enough. But in Europe there is more than one “Motserevich”; there, besides him, there are another 800 million people. And many in general about history have a very rough concept.
          not everywhere admit to a wide audience

          It is necessary to reach those who can be reached.

    When pride (and arrogance in the Polish version - arrogance) overpowers a person, then he needs to turn to the Bible.
    Pride is the first sin.
    And then, everything else.

    The Polish leadership with its arrogance will play out.

        Probably partly hatred or even Russophobia, but personally, I think that this is primarily cynicism and calculation. The authorities are trying to pay attention and possible defeats to the external enemy and to please their main electorate - the elderly, who remember the war (or almost do not remember), who are easy to manipulate.

        Only this is a destructive and dangerous policy :-(

    The message is not true. Ordinary Poles are very different. I warned several years ago that hysteria in Poland had reached an extreme degree and that the Poles were preparing for war. No more, no less. "Ordinary Germans" in 1933 also criticized Hitler. There is even a story by Gunter Grass about how Hitler's "ordinary Poles" were compared with Stalin, they say, "Hitler Fürth nach Russhe Maner," and how it ends. It was the "ordinary Germans" who then clearly followed orders, showing "reasonable initiative." Our population should not be disarmed in the face of such a threat, because there is a war going on. At any time, it can take the form that some consider "hot", and it is "obvious". While the war is flowing in a form that can last long enough. The "obvious phase" of the war will be fleeting.

      and she is "obvious"

      Respected Iouris!
      Do you know why this post of your day received a single plus and not a single minus?
      In each of his sentences, in addition to the obvious statement, there are also a couple of implied, obvious, in general. But, apparently, such logical constructions "do not catch" reading "diagonally in search of clear words."
      Try to express these same thoughts in more detail and chewed up in the form of an article. I think this will turn out to be very interesting material (especially since the heading "Opinions" does not imply categoricality, but the message to the discussion).
      A handful of pros:
      - for the ability to combine statements with arguments;
      - for their concentrated and brief presentation;
      - for the careful attitude to the Russian Language!
