Yad Vashem Condemns Yesterday's Attack in Warsaw by a Member of the Polish Parliament against Renowned Holocaust Historian Prof. Jan Grabowski

31 May 2023

Yad Vashem Chairman Dani Dayan released this statement following the violent assault yesterday in Warsaw by a member of the Polish parliament, who smashed a microphone on the speaker's podium and tried to rip out the sound system in order to prevent Professor Jan Grabowski from lecturing at the German Historical Institute.

Yad Vashem Chairman Dani Dayan remarked:

"This incident represents a new low in attempts to stifle discussion about the complicity of Poles in the persecution and murder of their Jewish neighbors during the Holocaust. This act of vandalism is more than an ugly attack on an internationally renowned scholar. It is an attack on academic freedom, on the historical record, and on Holocaust remembrance."
