It is hard to imagine a worse political context for the 50th anniversary of March ‘68 than the one created by the current Polish government which revises history to its own liking and for its own purposes. As in the case of Polish complicity in the Holocaust, also here questions surrounding ‘guilt’ emerged and were answered to fit the right-wing historical narrative. This presentation will show the highlights of the commemorative events, as reported by Chidusz, a Jewish magazine from Poland.
