Hikind Launches PolandMurderedJews.com 

4

New York State Assemblyman Dov Hikind (D-Brooklyn) has launched a new website called PolandMurderedJews.com in defiance of the law recently passed by Poland, which forbids discussion of Poland’s role in the Holocaust. The website, which opens with a video of Hikind discussing the need for historical accuracy, will display facts about Poland’s official atrocities before, during and after World War II.

“Poland’s attempt to whitewash its role in the murder of innocent men, women and children via their despicable Holocaust Denial Law has had a chilling effect on all of us who understand what really occurred in Poland—both before, during and after the war,” said Hikind. “I am the son of Holocaust survivors who lost their families in Auschwitz. I’ve met with hundreds of survivors throughout my lifetime, and throughout my 36 years in public office. I believe my district contains more survivors than any other district in the country. We know the truth and we’re not going to allow Poland to deny what they did.

“The new Polish law is bad enough,” Hikind continued. “Hearing Poland’s Prime Minister and his father add insult to injury is bad enough. But most importantly, Jewish leaders in Poland have made it clear that they are fearful of new and mounting dangers in Poland, which now denies its history of official anti-Semitism. Telling the truth to the world and protecting future generations of innocent Jews is incumbent upon all of those who G-d empowers with the ability to make a difference.”

Within hours of launching his new website PolandMurderedJews.com, New York State Assemblyman Dov Hikind (D-Brooklyn) came under fire from the Consul General of Poland in New York, Maciej Golubiewski. Hikind’s website was created in defiance of a law recently passed by Poland, which forbids discussion of Poland’s role in the Holocaust. Golubiewski wrote, “It is deeply worrisome that someone representing the city of New York in the New York State Assembly would purposefully use the expression that has been officially condemned.”

“I’m not the least surprised that the truth is disturbing to Poland’s officials,” Hikind retorted. “If they were committed to the truth, they would take responsibility for their role in this great historical tragedy. Let Poland condemn what occurred and work toward making certain that something like this never occurs to any people. Whitewashing history is an irresponsible, dishonest way to expunge their guilt. And they’re not fooling anyone.”

PolandMurderedJews.com opens with a video of Hikind discussing the need for historical accuracy. The site will display facts about Poland’s official atrocities before, during and after World War II.

“As the son of Holocaust survivors who lost their families in Auschwitz, I’ve met with hundreds of survivors throughout my lifetime, and throughout my 36 years in public office,” said Hikind. “We know the truth and we’re not going to allow Poland to deny what they did.”

  1. True justice will come after they leave this world and face the fires of gehinim. Plus when mosshiach comes there will be a new reconing for all the children that could of been born from the Jews who were murdered.

  2. Well done Hikind. I hope that you collect the names of all the Jews murdered by Poles, just as in Yad Vashem they collect the names of all Holocaust victims.

    A few points about language, because language does matter, it shapes the discourse itself.

    Jews did not lose their lives in Aushwitz. It makes it sound so random. They were murdered. And this whole episode of our history is not a tragedy but a crime. A tragedy is when a person unbeknownst and unintentionally runs over and kills his own child. A crime is when someone intentionally inflicts harm on another. The Nazis and their European supporters committed racially aggravated premeditated murder against an innocent Jew, six million times.
