29. Ah this is quite OFFICIAL Polish government stand
Yes we went "home" to visit and we got some of the books they sell at Camp Bookstores.

The line is... this was a POLISH tragedy... forget them Jews is the under meaning of it.

And while it was a Polish tragedy... 1\3 of all civilian casualties were Jewish. You should have seen how uncomfortable the Polish guide grew when I pointed that out. It helps to know the Holocaust inside out when getting into a small discussion on it.

I pointed out who and what were killed, and why, but if the Polish Government could do this, this would become a SLAV national tragedy. And I actually get it, after Jews Slavs were next.

Put things in context, it helps.

Oh and it will unsettle those relations... but this happens like almost clockwork every major anniversary.
