Yad Vashem's Response to the Announcement of the Polish Government's Intention to Modify the Polish National Remembrance Law Amendment

27 June 2018

Yad Vashem, the World Holocaust Remembrance Center, believes that the current announcement of the Polish government's intention to modify the controversial amendment to the National Remembrance law passed earlier this year, is a positive development in the right direction.  

We believe that the correct way to combat historical misrepresentations is by reinforcing open, free research and educational activities.  

Yad Vashem reiterates its support for ensuring that educators and researchers are not hindered in grappling with the complex truth of Polish-Jewish relations before, during and after the Holocaust.
