    This time the Germans invented “Polish ghettos”. They apologized but did not delete the entry

    Once again, a vulgar lie appeared in the German media, suggesting the complicity of Poles in the Holocaust. This time, the German public broadcaster Deutsche Welle used the term “Polish ghettos”. The Polish consulate in Munich intervened, as well as the Polish ambassador to Israel, Marek Magierowski. ““? You should not only delete this tweet but also apologize. This is an obvious case of Holocaust denial,” wrote the Polish ambassador to Israel, Marek Magierowski, on Twitter.

    The station apologized but did not remove the tweet, “for the sake of clarity”, it explains.

    “Sabotage, firearms, dynamite: words rarely associated with Jewish women living in Polish ghettos during the Holocaust,” broadcaster Deutsche Welle tweeted on Wednesday announcing an interview of the history of Jewish women’s resistance.

    The Consulate General of the Republic of Poland in Munich wrote on Thursday under this post: “Are you serious? Polish ghettos? It is a shame when a state-sponsored broadcaster spreads such scary fake news! Correct it at least in the name of our good Polish-German relations. People!”.
