Father of Polish PM says Jews gladly moved to ghettos, aided Germans
Warsaw – A former Polish politician who is the
father of the country’s prime minister said that during the Holocaust, Jews
moved to ghettos of their own accord to get away from non-Jewish Poles.
Kornel Morawiecki, a
former senator whose son, Mateusz, became prime minister last year, made the
remark in an interview published Tuesday by the online magazine Kulturą Liberalną.
“Do you know who
chased the Jews away to the Warsaw Ghetto? The Germans, you think? No. The Jews
themselves went because they were told that there would be an enclave, that
they would not have to deal with those nasty Poles,” said Kornel Morawiecki.
