Warsaw
– An antisemitic Polish group calling itself “Defenders of the Cross”
(Obrona Krzyża) has announced that it will demonstrate opposite a delegation of
Knesset members when they
visit the Auschwitz concentration camp, next week, in conjunction with the
international Holocaust remembrance day, according to a Tuesday-morning report
by Ma’ariv.

 

In
a video clip posted on the Internet, members of the group said they are
protesting what they called “violation of Polish sovereignty and holy
Polish land”, as well as attempts by the Knesset members “to rewrite
history and distort reality.” They claim that the Auschwitz death camp was
mainly used for the murder of Polish prisoners, while the Jews were taken to
nearby Birkenau.
