Hikind Launches PolandMurderedJews.com Website Displays Truth About Poland’s Atrocities Despite Holocaust Denial Law
New York State Assemblyman Dov Hikind (D-Brooklyn) has launched a new website called PolandMurderedJews.com in defiance of the law recently passed by Poland, which forbids discussion of Poland’s role in the Holocaust. The website, which opens with a video of Hikind discussing the need for historical accuracy, will display facts about Poland’s official atrocities before, during and after World War II.
“Poland’s attempt to whitewash its role in the murder of innocent men, women and children via their despicable Holocaust Denial Law has had a chilling effect on all of us who understand what really occurred in Poland—both before, during and after the war,” said Hikind. “I am the son of Holocaust survivors who lost their families in Auschwitz. I’ve met with hundreds of survivors throughout my lifetime, and throughout my 36 years in public office. I believe my district contains more survivors than any other district in the country. We know the truth and we’re not going to allow Poland to deny what they did.
“The new Polish law is bad enough,” Hikind continued. “Hearing Poland’s Prime Minister and his father add insult to injury is bad enough. But most importantly, Jewish leaders in Poland have made it clear that they are fearful of new and mounting dangers in Poland, which now denies its history of official anti-Semitism. Telling the truth to the world and protecting future generations of innocent Jews is incumbent upon all of those who G-d empowers with the ability to make a difference.”
