DISINFO: Poland is avoiding discussion on difficult historical issues by refusing to take part in World Holocaust Forum
On the one hand, Poland tries to react to the historical statements made by President Putin. On the other hand, it does not want to communicate its message at the World Holocaust Forum, which will unite so many representatives of the key states. This situation is rather an escape from the discussion on difficult topics from Polish history.
This message is part of the ongoing Russian information attack against Poland, which includes several false messages (such as alleged responsibility of Poland for WWII and the Holocaust).
The Polish President Andrzej Duda announced his decision not to attend the World Holocaust Forum in Jerusalem due to the fact that Poland will not be allowed to address the event. The Polish President expressed concern about Russian President Vladimir Putin's recent accusations that Poland was complicit in the outbreak of World War II. If Putin chose to follow up on his rhetoric at the Holocaust Forum, Poland would have no possibility to react to his words.
The representatives of the Polish Jewish community have criticized the organizers of the World Holocaust Forum and their refusal to allow the Polish delegation to address the event.
