The so-called visegrad group (Poland, Hungary, the Czech republic and Slovakia) to meet in Jerusalem next week. Poland will instead be represented by foreign minister Jacek Czaputowicz, Morawiecki informed Netanyahu by telephone.
The Jerusalem Post published a quote from Benjamin Netanyahu in which he said that "poles collaborated with the germans" in the Holocaust during the second world war. The prime minister later said he was misquoted and that he pointed out all the poles required.
In Poland, the question of Polish involvement in the annihilation of the occupying force in mass murder come to the fore in recent years, when the högerkonservativa the government wanted to emphasize that even non-jewish poles fell victim to Nazi atrocities. It has, among other things, banned the use of terms such as "Polish death camps", which has raised concerns in Israel, which feared that it then no longer becomes possible to talk about the poles who helped the nazis to carry out their crimes.
Morawiecki and Netanyahu have had a public war of words in the question before. Last year plummeted Netanyahu when Morawiecki spoke of the "jewish perpetrator" during the Holocaust.
