Poland Rabbi Rips Honoring Nazi Collaborators; States It Insults Memory of Poles Killed in WW II

Poland's chief rabbi today (August 7, 2019) criticized plans by the country's government to honor a group of ultra-nationalist underground fighters accused of collaborating with the Nazis during World War II, according to the AFP (Agence France-Presse) website.

Rabbi Michael Schudrich said he felt "insulted" by an invitation from the Polish veterans' affairs office to a ceremony marking the 75th anniversary of the creation of the Swietokrzyska Brigade.

The event will be held under the auspices of President Andrzej Duda.

"The organization of these ceremonies insults the  memory of all Polish citizens killed in the fight against Germany," Schudrich said in a letter addressed to Veterans' Affairs chief Jan Kasprzyk.
