Say what? Israel and Poland honor oldest surviving ‘Righteous Among Nations’

Via Times of Israel and AP
How is that possible? If you read international news media, especially the New York Times and The Washington Post, about Poland you would hear by now that Poland is a horrible place where everybody hates Jews and, according to some politicians, that hatred comes in (Polish) mother's milk. So, again, how is that possible that Poland has the oldest surviving person recognized by Yad Vashem as ‘Righteous Among Nations’???

The Times of Israel: "The presidents of Israel and Poland have sent birthday greetings to a 101-year-old Polish woman who is believed to be the be oldest living person recognized by Yad Vashem for rescuing Jews during the Holocaust. Reuven Rivlin of Israel and Andrzej Duda of Poland praised Anna Kozminska in separate letters for her courage in risking her own life to help Jews during the German occupation of Poland."

The letters were delivered to Mrs Kozminska on her birthday by Poland’s chief rabbi, Michael Schudrich, and the niece of a boy she her and her step-mother, Maria Kozminska, saved during the war. Both women took in 8-year-old Abraham Jablonski in 1942 and sheltered him for three years. They also helped rescue three other Jews.
