Correcting the phrase “Polish death camp” — there’s an app for that

You can read here about the new app that you can use to change the evil phrase “Polish death camp” to the correct term: “Nazi death Camp.”

My photo below shows the gate into the Auschwitz-Birkenau camp “death camp”.


The death camps, that were used in the killing of the Jews in the Holocaust, were mainly in Poland but it is wrong to refer to them as “Polish death camps.” These were camps which were run by the German Nazis, so they should be called German death camps.

This quote is from the news article:

After Poland called to punish those who use the term “Polish death camps” in reference to the wartime Nazi death camps on Polish soil, the museum at Auschwitz launched software that will help remove the term, which Poland says attributes responsibility for the Nazi crimes to the country.

On Tuesday, the website for the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial Museum unveiled the “Remember” software which helps replaces “Polish death camp” with “Nazi death camp.”

“A special application ‘Remember’ is to help avoid the use of the term ‘Polish concentration camps’ or ‘Polish death camps’ in 16 languages. The program, which can be installed on a personal computer searches for a false phrase, underlines it and suggests the appropriate wording,” the museum explained on its Facebook page.

The death camps were in Poland, which leads to the common mistake of calling them Polish death camps.

One of the components of the government’s plan is the delegitimization of Polish-born American historian Jan Tomasz Gross, who in his acclaimed 2001 book “Neighbors,” exposed the Polish role in the 1941 massacre of 1,600 Jews in town of Jedwabne. The office of Polish President Andrej Duda, who is also from the Law and Justice party, has said it was considering stripping Gross of the Knight’s Cross Medal of Honor that Gross received in 1996 for his opposition to the former Communist regime in the country. Duda is now awaiting the opinion of the Polish Foreign Ministry on the issue.

When prisoners were brought to Auschwitz-Birkenau, they had to stay in the quarantine barracks for a few days until it was determined that they had no disease that might be spread throughout the camp.  The German Nazis didn’t want the prisoners to die of disease; they wanted to kill them in gas chambers.  The Poles would never have done something like that, so don’t ever use the phrase “Polish death camp.”



  1. The good old Holo-scam continues on folks! The following episode occurred in Belgrade, Serbia on 12th Feb. 2016:-

    “In a move that Holocaust restitution experts called precedent setting, Serbia’s parliament passed a law offering compensation for Jewish property seized during and after the Holocaust without heirs.

    The law passed Friday by the Narodna skupstina, or the National Assembly, Serbia’s parliament, offers annual payments of a little over $1 million for the next 25 years to the country’s Jewish communities for property which was confiscated from its Jewish owners during and after the Holocaust, the World Jewish Restitution Organization, or WJRO, said in a statement.

    While many countries in Eastern Europe allow claims by individual heirs, none so far have enacted laws that offer restitution for Jewish property without heirs, according to WJRO.”

    “This is a step toward justice and the recognition of history,” WJRO Chair of Operations Gideon Taylor said in a statement issued Friday. “We look to other countries to follow Serbia’s lead and return heirless Jewish property so that it can help Holocaust survivors in need, commemorate those who died and strengthen Jewish life in these communities where so much was destroyed.”

    Well there’s a nice little treasure-pot that will accumulate year-by-year until 2041 ladies and gentlemen. The Serbian taxpayer ( who are overwhelming Gentile ) is being required to kindly make a mandatory contribution to this noble restitution fund. But note; the beneficiaries are not those caught up in the holocaust itself, or their families and heirs. Oh no sir-ee – it would appear that any Jew, or Jewish organisation in Serbia, can put in a claim for a lump sum, if they can concoct a plausible enough story that they are entitled to a pay-out.

    I think we can all agree that the holocaust can be aptly described as “The Goose that lays the Golden Egg”!

  2. Sadly, there isn’t an app to remove the alleged occupants of these camps…and their descendants

  3. I thought apps were supposed to serve a purpose.
