“Scholar” Says Poland’s “Holocaust” Policies Mark Step Backward

A prominent Polish-American academic whose scholarship has explored Polish violence against Jews during World War II says Poland’s new right-wing leadership is taking “a step back to the dark ages of anti-Semitism” with a threat to strip him of a state honor and other measures.

Poland’s president is considering stripping Princeton professor Jan Tomasz Gross of an Order of Merit he received in 1996. The president’s office said recently that it received some 2,000 letters from citizens asking it to take that step.
