Gov’t to propose jail time for ‘Polish camps’?

The Polish council of ministers is expected to discuss the introduction of jail time for anyone using the term “Polish death camps” referring to those run by WWII Nazi-Germany. The ministers will discuss changes to the Polish penal code to introduce a new type of crime.

The Council will meet on Tuesday following a three-week recess.

According to the original version of the draft prepared by the Ministry of Justice, the use of the term “Polish death camp” – referring to facilities run by Nazi German authorities in occupied Poland during World War II – could result in a prison term of up to five years.
