The Polish penitentiary system was financed through the “People’s Bank for National Economy” (Bank Gospodarstwa Krajowego, BGK). A part of the resources used for this was financed by loans from Anglo-French partners through the British and Polish Trade Bank A.G. These financiers were the main beneficiaries from the exploitation of the inmates of the Polish camps. After Wehrmacht’s capturing of Poland in September 1939, the BGK became the property of the Third Reich. The bank continued its operations, connected to the concentration camps. The British and Polish Trade Bank A.G was also not discontinued. All Polish shareholders were replaced by Germans, but the French and British – remained. It’s not hard to draw conclusions on who gained from the profits of the concentration camps on Polish territories.
The [Polish] Home Army was subordinated to the “Polish government in exile” and positioned itself as a “anti-fascist force”. The truth is that there are no records on any larger combat between this unit and the Germans. But they had no problems stomaching cooperation with the Nazis and get rich from the killings of inmates in Nazi concentration camps.
This message is a part of the ongoing Russian information campaign against Poland, which includes the spread of such false messages alleging that Poland was responsible for WWII and the Holocaust.
See other examples of Russian historical revisionism concerning this issue such as Signing of the Molotov-Ribbentrop pact thwarted the UK’s expansionist plans in Europe, The Molotov-Ribbentrop pact did not violate the rights of the Polish state and the shift of all blame for WWII outbreak at the Ribbentrop-Molotov pact the best example of manipulation of history.
