Tuesday 10th July – Discussion Group: Poland and the Holocaust, What Can Now Be Said?
The Polish Act of 26th January 2018 (amending the Act on the Institute of National Remembrance) has reverberated internationally and created consternation in Jewish communities around the world. It states: “Whoever publicly and contrary to the facts attributes to the Polish Nation or to the Polish State responsibility or co-responsibility for the Nazi crimes committed by the German Third Reich ….or for any other offences constituting crimes against peace, humanity or war crimes, otherwise grossly diminishes the responsibility of the actual perpetrators of these crimes, shall be liable to a fine or deprivation of liberty for up to 3 years.” An offence is not committed if “… within the framework of artistic or scientific activity.” We will consider the possible intentions and implications of the new law and share our concerns in an informal discussion group for Second and Third Generations. There is no need to book, but it would be helpful to have an idea of numbers. If you would like to attend please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
