German publishers urged to clean up act over 'Polish death camp' references

Believe it or not, over 70 years after the end of WWII, German children learn in their schools that concentration camps located on German occupied territories in Poland were "Polish death camps".

So, a group of Polish and German historians and geographers has appealed to German publishers to remove “unacceptable” references to “Polish death camps” from school textbooks.

That would have worked if those references were accidental. But after so many years of official and private protests one has to assume that it is a purposeful action. One designed to remove a guilt from the national conscience and to blame someone else, for example, victims.
