The Polish Catholic Church, the Polish nationalist movement and the National Democratic Party are guilty of promoting the genocide of Jews. The Polish state between the two world wars fostered a Judenrein Poland.People of Poland, in 1919, your reborn state was granted independence because your representatives signed a treaty promising equality and religious freedom without discrimination to all its citizens. Your representatives signed in bad faith and without the slightest intention of honoring these promises. The major signatory was that of the father of modern Polish antisemitism, a proto-fascist Jew-hater, about whom will come more in this column. These terms were embodied in the “little Treaty of Versailles” enabling the reborn Poland to rise as a sovereign and independent state.
