Poland defends PM's Holocaust remark

Poland defends PM's Holocaust remarkPoland on Sunday sought to defend remarks by its prime minister which Israeli leader Benjamin Netanyahu called “outrageous” and amounted to denying the Holocaust. “The comments of Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki during a discussion in Munich were by no means intended to deny the Holocaust, or charge the Jewish victims of the Holocaust with responsibility for what was a Nazi German perpetrated genocide,” Morawiecki’s spokeswoman Joanna Kopcinska said in a statement. The Israeli premier, who like Morawiecki was in Munich for a global security conference, on Saturday responded angrily to the remark that the Holocaust had involved “Jewish perpetrators” as well as Polish ones.
