Polish Nazi death camps to be preserved

Wed, December 6, 2006

By FREE PRESS NEWS SERVICES

WARSAW, POLAND -- The International Auschwitz Council agreed yesterday to modernize a 51-year-old exhibition at the site of the Nazi death camp and build walls to prevent the ruins of gas chambers from sinking into the ground.

The decision to renovate and preserve remains of the vast Nazi death camp in southern Poland marks a change in the long-standing approach to maintaining the site, which has been left as the Allies found it. The Allies liberated the camp at the end of the Second World War when they defeated Nazi German forces occupying Poland. But two of the gas chambers are slowly sinking into the ground and will likely slide out of sight within the next two decades if nothing is done.

Hmmmm... I'd think, that those were German Nazi death camps, not Polish ones.

This boils my blood every time. "Nazi German death camps in Poland"... why is it so difficult to write this!? Unless of course the authors have an agenda.

The one responsible for this idiotic title should be sued by the Polish government!

Not only "Polish death camps" but even "Polish Nazi". London Nazi Press reports. Nice!

Yeah but.....haven't we been told that those camps never existed. I wonder if Iran knows this?

Glad to see that they are going to preserve this. It was something else to see this last summer.

Yes. Those are German death camps ~ there are not Polish death camps.

You'd almost think the folks who keep making that mistake aren't really interested in the topic.

Lizol, you are lawyer. Is there any legal grounds to sue the bastards who call German Nazi concentration camps on Polish soil "Polish Nazi concentration camps"?

Poles had nothing with those camps, they were only victims. It is deliberate deception.

In my book it is Nazi revisionist ploy to exonerate German Nazis and their American business partners and blame Poles instead.

How about many people taking newspapers to small claims court and having it turned into class action suit?

>>>>>>>>>>Actually, they are IG-Auschwitz/100% owned by Bayer, BASF and Hoechst (now Aventis)<<<<<<<<<<<

Syntetic rubber factory was located in Buna (Auschwitz III) and was owned by Standard Oil. No wonder it was not bombed during the entire war, although syntetic rubber is strategic material, unlike catedrals of Dresden and Koeln.

Inmates who worked in Standard Oil's factory were given "buna soup" - unknown concoction that enabled inmates to work without food and metabolise their own tissue. This is worse than any horror film-inmates died as fleshless skeletons.

I don't believe that anybody is under the impression that the Polish people were the driving force behind the establishment of the death camps. I'm sure that most people believe the Poles were victims of a brutalizing invading force on their own sovereign territory.

Hope you are right. The problem is abysmal education system. In a survey taken several years ago in Britan, over 50% of adult participants have never heard of Auschwitz.

For them, it could be a name of some white wine. They have no clue.

Fast forward ten or 20 years and if those blokes check the net to find what Auschwitz is they will find reports calling Auschwitz a "polish nazi concentration camp".

You have a point, the record must be corrected to reflect the fact that the death camps are not "Polish" even though they were imposed upon Poland by the Nazis.

As far as I know - Polish MFA and embassies in cooperation with one of the main Polish newspapers and organizations of Poles living abroad are running such action.

Some time ago I've read, that some research has been done among youngsters in a school in California.

One of the questions was "what nationality were the Nazis?".

And the most common answer was ... "Polish".

The headline is offensive. I suppose, the writer wanted to avoid at least the even more ominous "Polish death camp", but "Polish nazi"? IMO, even the sentence "The Allies liberated the camp at the end of the Second World War when they defeated Nazi German forces occupying Poland" isn't enough of a clarification.

Not only the Nazi Poles had built the camps, they also want to keep them running!
