Poles Were Complicit in Holocaust: Outrage Over Obama “Gaffe” is Fraudulent, Ignorant

By Debbie Schlussel

Barack Obama has done enough legitimately bad things that we don’t need to manufacture phony outrage over things he does that really aren’t so bad. Such is the case with the feigned shock and fake moralizing over his comments, yesterday, about German Nazi death camps in Poland being a Polish death camp. Here’s a tip for Poland and ignoramuses in the lumpenconservatariat who now engage in revisionist history: Poles murdered millions of Jews, they maintained several death camps, and they wiped out almost all of both sides of my family, as well as those in hundreds of thousands of other Jewish families. This wasn’t just the Nazis. It was tens of thousands of eager Poles and more. Obama made no gaffe here. Poland’s willing executioners took their significant place among Hitler’s willing executioners.

Poland’s Warsaw Ghetto Existed Because of Polish Complicity


Two Things That Weren’t Exactly Mutually Exclusive

There is a reason why Poland was so easily occupied by the Germans. Yeah, I know–they were “just taking orders.” Just taking orders when they helped round up Jews and helped man gas chambers. As if Nazis from Germany did this alone! Polish police all too happily worked with the SS to round up Jews. Polish police all too easily took their place in helping run and operate the death camps. Facts are stubborn things. But, sadly, not as stubborn as morons and blind partisans.

I had to laugh when I read this:

Poland’s Prime Minister Donald Tusk said Wednesday Obama’s words had hurt all Poles and he expected more from Washington than just “regret”.

Are you kidding? Someone needs to remind Mr. Tusk that his people were the ones doing the hurting and the turning over to the Nazis and the mass murder of at least half of the six million Jews killed in the Holocaust, some of them from my family. You are “hurt” by calling Nazi death camps, “Polish”???? Um, where were they? Who helped operate them and round up and turn in the camps’ Jewish occupants, soon to be turned into ash and fumes?

There is a reason that President Obama, yesterday, awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom posthumously to Jan Karski, the former Polish underground officer who provided early eyewitness accounts of Nazi Germany’s genocide of European Jews. And that’s because Karski was unlike most of his fellow Poles, who hated Jews just as the Nazis did and proudly turned them over to the Nazis and/or participated in the mass murderous Judenrein. Even in the Polish underground, hatred of Jews was legion. My great-uncle was in the Polish underground, until they slit his throat while he was sleeping because, one day, the head of the Polish underground demanded a cleansing of its Jews, too.

My paternal grandmother had eleven brothers and sisters. Only one brother survived the Holocaust after the Poles murdered the rest along with her parents, after Poles seized their farm. (Grandma Marilyn was brought to the U.S. before the Holocaust began.) My maternal grandmother had only one surviving sister and brother, out of ten siblings. All the rest–and her parents–were murdered by the Poles. My maternal grandfather’s entire family was wiped out by the Poles. Grandpa Isaac’s father was mayor of the town and owned a hardware store. He hid in the haystacks of a Pole who owed him money and had bought tools on credit, but my grandfather escaped and was ultimately rounded up to the camps, after he heard the Pole tell neighbors he was going to trade my grandfather to the Nazis for a bottle of whisky.

My family and the millions of Jews wiped out in Poland never identified as Polish because the Poles never treated them that way. They were subject to centuries of pogroms and extreme anti-Semitism by the country in which they lived, before they were ultimately rounded up to the camps and mass-murdered with Polish cooperation. They were treated as subhuman all along the way, never as fellow “Polish.” So it’s beyond hilarious now to hear that the Poles are “hurt” by Obama’s description of a German Nazi death camp as “Polish.” As if there weren’t any Polish ones or as if the Poles had zero part in the Holocaust they all too eagerly participated in. Read the 93 pages of “Bystanders, Blackmailers, and Perpetrators: Polish Complicity During the Holocaust” for just a taste of what the Poles wrought on the Jews.

Yes, it is laughable that the Poles, Rush Limbaugh, self-hating Jew Matt Drudge, and a gazillion Republicans and incredibly obtuse and ignorant members of the lumpenconservatariat–most of them no different from the Obamabots in their lack of intelligence, knowledge, and common sense and decency–are incensed over this “gaffe” that really ain’t a gaffe at all. It’s intellectual dishonesty to insist that these death camps on Polish soil were not at all Polish and merely “German Nazi.” Here’s a list of the Polish ones–did they not exist? Did they exist in Poland only because the Germans did this and the Polish had no part? Only a liar or a moron would make these claims. The White House should have made no apology to Poland. These major death camps existed in Poland for a reason: Polish complicity in the Holocaust and willing cooperation with the Nazis.

* Auschwitz

* Belzec

* Chelmno

* Gross-Rosen

* Majdanek

* Plaszow

* Sobibor

* Stutthof

* Treblinka

Keep these names in your mind when you read this quote:

Poland’s government keenly watches the global media for descriptions of former Nazi German death camps as “Polish” because it says the term — even if used simply as a geographical indicator — can give the impression that Poland bore responsibility for Nazi Germany’s World War II genocide.

Although located in Poland, Auschwitz for example was set up and run entirely by German dictator Adolf Hitler’s occupying forces from 1940 to 1945.

Huh? The Poles were not just forced into this by the Nazis. They were active participants, many of them gleeful and eager to murder Jews. To call these camps Polish is no “gaffe.” Poland DOES bear responsibility for the Nazi genocide of Jews.

It’s just fact. And it’s denial and fraud for Poland and others to argue otherwise.

Yes, there were a few righteous gentile Poles who saved Jews. A very tiny few. The majority were all too happy for the Judenrein, especially in the way it took place.

That was the real Poland during World War II. Anyone who says otherwise is a fraud.

And if you wonder why so many Jews are liberal and won’t vote Republican, BS, like the absurd denial that Nazi Death Camps were Polish, certainly doesn’t help in endearing Jews to the GOP.

Thank you Debbie for telling the truth about Polish antisemitism. My family were also Polish Jews and their experience was very similar to yours.

The nasty comments here by Poles prove that nothing has changed. They are still terrible antisemites.

To all the Poles who have answered here: take into account that it is possible for a nation to suffer terribly under Nazi rule while still persecuting and colaborating in murder against it’s Jewish minority.

The most shocking thing in my mind was the massacres of Jews by Poles that occured AFTER the Nazis had left or were in retreat.

    there is big difference what is “quite possible” and how it was

    please, check history and if your sources are telling something you claimed – use the better one and try tio understand what is yours mistake

    1. polish camps – there were none. Get it ?
    2. there were atrocities and you should know that Jews were also killing Poles (I believe even more, especially with help of Soviets), but you miss the point – Poles generally do not collaborate with Nazis even like Dutches, French and other western countries did. Even in London during Battle of Britain were atrocities against Jews, which was cumbersome for British govenrment. The same with Jews, who were also murderers. They murder Jews, they murder Poles, they murder Germans.
    I started to believe that you were watching this stupid serial “Holocaust”, which made so much controversies and was so out of reality. In jewish ghettos were not polish police, but jewish plus nazi. Jewish police have no weapon, only button stick but commanded they were killing own brothers and sisters. Gas chambers in Auschwitz were also operated by jewish commandos. They knew that they will be killed, but for surviving couple more days they send own kind to gas chambers very professionally. Surprise ? You think I am lying ? Verify first.

Ralph, read this..
“In the summer of 1942, when the liquidation of the Warsaw Ghetto began, Kossak-Szczucka published a leaflet entitled “Protest,” which was printed in 5,000 copies. In the leaflet she described in graphic terms the conditions in the Ghetto, and the horrific circumstances of the deportations then taking place. “All will perish,” she wrote. “Poor and rich, old, women, men, youngsters, infants, Catholics dying with the name of Jesus and Mary together with Jews. Their only guilt is that they were born in to the Jewish nation condemned to extermination by Hitler.” Since World War II writers have been puzzled about what they see as Kossak-Szczucka’s contradictory views. On the one hand she is described as a nationalist and an anti-Semite, something she did not in fact deny. On the other hand, she made a genuine appeal to the Polish national conscience to come to the aid of the Jews as well as risked her life by becoming involved in practical work to save at least a fraction of Polish Jews from the Germans. She co-founded Provisional Committee to Aid Jews (Tymczasowy Komitet Pomocy ?ydom), which later turned into Council to Aid Jews (Rada Pomocy ?ydom), codename Zegota, an underground organization whose sole purpose was to save Jews in Poland from Nazi extermination. In 1985 she was posthumously awarded Righteous Among the Nations title.
About the 1942 “Protest” by Kossak-Szczucka, Robert D. Cherry and Annamaria Orla-Bukowska wrote in the introduction to Rethinking Poles and Jews: “Without at all whitewashing her antisemitism in the document, she vehemently called for active intercession on behalf of the Jews—precisely in the name of Polish Roman Catholicism and Polish patriotism. The deportations from the Warsaw Ghetto precipitated her cofounding of Zegota that same year—an Armia Krajowa (AK, Home Army) unit whose sole purpose was to save Jews.” In 1943 Kossak-Szczucka was arrested, .. . She was sent first to the infamous Pawiak prison and then to Auschwitz.” You see what you want to see. No comment..

Just found that article by accident and I’m fuming out of my ears.
You call yourself a “journalist” and you writing such a piece?!
What are your sources you got all of those infos from? Uncle of your cousins wife brother told you that?
There was many camps in Poland, because OUR COUNTRY WAS SEIZED by nazis!
Some Polish probably cooperated because of multiple reasons but placing swastika on the same level with Polish Eagle is just too much!
I live and grew up in a close neighborhood of Plaszow’s camp and can assure you EVERYBODY has incredible respect towards the place.

Adrian_Poland on June 6, 2012 at 3:58 pm

Shame on you… you don’t know nothing therefore your article is like dirt only. It’s unbeliveable that we are in XXI century, huh?

This “article’ should be taken for what it is – a vulgar invective intended to offend all Poles. If there was any merit in all those accusations, the author would be specific in what she alleges. I challenge her with just two questions and her answers can very easily be verified by any historian specializing in the WWII: 1. exactly how may millions Jews did Poles killed in the WWII??? and 2. which concentration camps exactly were run or co-run by Poles??? Ignorance of the author is so paramount that I have no intention to go sentence by sentiency to prove how inaccurate, false, and plain bad faith her claims are. On a personal note, the author is in much better position than I am when it comes to her family’s war suffering – she had a chance to talk to her grandfather and I did not, both died in that war fighting Germans.

Go back to the kitchen, Debbie. You will be surely more useful there.

Gregor on June 6, 2012 at 4:23 pm

And you know why there were so manu jews in Poland? Because it was the only country in Europe that accepted jews when they were expelled from other european countries.

We also did not have black slaves, contrary to US. Take care of your own behaviour and then try to judge others.

Edwin on June 6, 2012 at 4:24 pm

Your article is very controvesial mrs. Schlussel. You said ‘taking orders’ this is not be truth because Poland fight with Germans and actually dont collaborate. maybe you think about ‘volksdeutsch’. If you dont know about this, THIS is often Poles who had a German sounding name often such as you, for example, so when germans ocuppy Poland they are be germans. Why? Because they from for example from west Poland and have father from Germany. You said about your familly history i understood you, but i have a question. Are you completly certain about this people who comiting crime was Poles? I think about tragedy of your familly.
You probably do not understand why the Poles are fighting with the issue as their collaboration with Nazi Germany.
You and whole world must understood why. Many Polish family have more cruel history than you. Many familly have a tragical story in my country. I dont think about 1,2,3 family but about thousand. We are a only nation who fight at begining to the end, and after war we been ocuppy too… We have regret to Western Civilisation about it.
Ending, in my opinion it would be better if you thought on controversial topics and answers them.
All the best Daniel.

A pile of rubbish; liar’s opinions without any reference to historical facts. So Poles were so eager to murder some Jews that decided to sacrifice same amount of their own people in the process? Almost 6 millions Poles were war casaulties, out of which only 3 millions were Polish Jews?

modry on June 6, 2012 at 4:33 pm

You. Are. Srsly. An. Idiot. Debbie.
Nazis build death camps in Poland to save on transportation. Polish was classified as ‘minor race’ in hitler ideology, so they all was going to be killed. Noone build lumberjack camp in desert, but in forest.
Saying “polish death camps” is just like “usa attack on WTC” or “japanese bomb dropped on hiroshime”

Ratilt on June 6, 2012 at 4:34 pm

Do you know how antisemitism in Poles arises? It’s an effect of spreading atipolonism by the Jews! And this article is a prime example of this mechanism.

Tired of this on June 6, 2012 at 4:42 pm

Rest in peace Debbie Schlussel. Stupid plastic blondie.

Kuba on June 6, 2012 at 4:44 pm

American Jewish Congress is clear about this issue:

We would also like to remind those who are either unaware of the facts or careless in their choice of words, as has been the case with some media outlets, that Auschwitz-Birkenau and the other death camps, including Belzec, Chelmno, Majdanek, Sobibor and Treblinka, were conceived, built and operated by Nazi Germany and its allies.

The camps were located in German-occupied Poland, the European country with by far the largest Jewish population, but they were most emphatically not “Polish camps”.

Enough ?
