Don’t Call Them Polish Death Camps


Those places are German Nazi camps which were and are located in Poland.  The government is trying to dictate vocabulary. 

(CNN) A law proposal making phrases like “Polish labor camps,” “Polish extermination camps” and “Polish death camps” punishable by imprisonment for up to three years has been approved by Poland’s Cabinet. – snip – 

Poland’s Justice Minister Zbigniew Ziobro said in a statement that under the new law “there will be criminal consequences taken against persons who publicly and against the facts say the Polish nation participated, organized, is responsible or co-responsible for committing the crimes of the German Third Reich.”
“The offenders will be subject to fines and up to three years of imprisonment and those who committed it unintentionally will be fined or detained. The rulings will be announced publicly.”
Poland's government wants to jail people for using phrases like "Polish death camps" to refer to Auschwitz (pictured) and other camps that Nazi Germany operated in occupied Poland during WWII.

They even want to have jurisdiction over you…

“According to proposed provisions, Polish system of justice will have global jurisdiction over the offence, as it has now over many other criminal behaviors. Therefore this draft law, when comes into force, could be applied towards foreigners committing aforementioned offences abroad. “
