Now the upper house of Parliament is working on amendments to the law involving the exclusion of punishment for the accusations against the Polish people involvement in the Holocaust and collaboration with the Nazis. Earlier on June 27 such amendments approved by the lower house — the Sejm.
According to Moravcova, until the law is analyzed in the constitutional court. He added that MPs “do not relate to the proposals of the themes of the propaganda of Bandera ideology and denial of the Volyn massacre”, which was arranged during the Second world war, the supporters of Stepan Bandera.
The law at present provides for imprisonment for up to three years, in particular, for the use of the expression “Polish death camps” and other statements that can be interpreted as an attempt to put the poles complicit in the crimes of Nazi Germany. Such is the punishment and for the promotion of “the ideology of Bandera” and the denial of the Volyn massacre.
The law came into force on 1 March. It sparked international criticism, particularly from Israel and Ukraine. Israel took the Polish law as a restriction of freedom of speech, which makes it impossible to open the discussion about the crimes committed against Jews during the Second world war. Dissatisfaction with the law expressed in the United States.
