Poland’s Disgraceful Denial Over Holocaust Commemoration

Via The Strategic Culture Foundation,

There was good reason why Polish President Andrzej Duda was prevented from addressing the Holocaust memorial event in Israel this week. The organizers anticipated he would use the event to make ugly and foolish accusations against Russia for having alleged complicity in the Nazi genocide.
