Polish PM Cancels Israel Visit amid New Holocaust Tensions

Polish PM Cancels Israel Visit amid New Holocaust Tensions

Sunday, 17 February 2019 10:38 AM EST

WARSAW, Poland (AP) — A Polish government official says Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki will not attend a meeting in Israel starting Monday amid new tensions between the two countries over how to remember Polish behavior during the Holocaust.

Michal Dworczyk, who heads Morawiecki's chancellery, announced the change of plans on Sunday.

Netanyahu made an off-hand comment last week during a Middle East conference in Warsaw that "Poles cooperated with the Nazis" - wording suggesting some Poles during the German occupation of Poland participated in killing Jews.

He was initially quoted by the Jerusalem Post as saying "the Poles," which could be taken as blaming the entire Polish nation.

Both Netanyahu's office and the newspaper say he was misquoted in an editing error, but the Polish government said it was not satisfied.
