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.”
