SPRING IN WARSAW CUTS


Polish anti-Semitism remains. But the question remains whether the rituals of the March of the Living are not fueling it. Speaking to the Polish weekly newspaper Przekrój in May 2007, Ilona Dworak-Cousin, the chairwoman of the Polish-Israeli Friendship Association in Israel, stated: “Those trips basically come down to visiting, one by one, the places of extermination of Jews. From that perspective Poland is just a huge Jewish graveyard. And nothing more.” On his visit to Israel in 2008, President Kacynzski echoed the comments, stating that young Jews today perceive Poland only as the scene of the Holocaust, and overlook 800 years of shared Jewish-Polish history.
