    This sort of thing is a disgrace. If the guy’s numbers are wrong or his research is flawed then that’s for other scholars to expose and dispute but even the threat of prosecution serves to stifle inquiry. The Polish government needs to put on its big boy pants.Report

      This is what happens when you “feelz”

      But frankly, if he can’t back up the claim, and no one else can affirm the findings, it seems a clear case of libel/slander (which ever one it is).Report

        I’m not sure how it works in Europe but in the United States it would be hard to make a case for libel (libel is written, slander is spoken) when the falsehood was about a group, especially a group so large and amorphous as the Polish nation. My reading of the article is that he said Poles generally, not a particular Pole or even group of Poles who could be identified as being libeled.Report

  4. The Poles were so angered by these baseless accusations that they burned a synagogue.Report
