Poland: "Poles didn’t do this, it was provocation by the Communists"

Via Times of Israel:
At least 42 Jews were killed and over 40 injured in the worst anti-Semitic attack in postwar Poland, according to the Washington-based United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.

The pogrom went down as one of the darkest moments in the thousand-year-long history of Polish Jews.

Nine people were sentenced to death for their role in the killings, but the Communist authorities of the time tried to blame regime opponents for the crime.

Years later, the massacre is still a favorite of conspiracy theorists, with the far right refusing to accept that Poles were responsible.

“I would remove this, it’s a lie,” a man in his forties tells Bialek, pointing at a plaque commemorating “anti-Semitic unrest” on the white facade of the building at 7/9 Planty Street.

Poles didn’t do this, it was provocation by the Communists to show that Poles are anti-Semitic,” he said.
