Warsaw prosecutor’s office has launched a probe into a statement made by an American historian, who claimed that Poles “actually killed more Jews than Germans” during WWII.
Jan Tomasz Gross, a US Princeton University professor of history and sociology, who is himself of Polish origin, is being accused of public insult as well as defaming Poland and sullying the country’s good name.
The case against Gross is based on Article 133 of the Polish Criminal Code, according to which the American professor could face up to three years imprisonment for “publicly insulting the Polish nation or the Republic of Poland,” Przemyslaw Nowak, a spokesman for the prosecutor’s office, said on Thursday.
Well here we have what we call revisionist antisemitism

I'm curious who the Rothchilds bought Jerusalem from?? That fact that the British restricted Jewish emigration seems contradictory to the supposed fact that the Rothchilds held so much 'sway' in the British Gov't.
I've always held the swinish suspicion that the British were more concerned with keeping the Suez Canal away from any one ethnicity having potentially complete control of that vital economic pipeline that fed the empire.

Did you read the whole article or just the headline? It says nothing that would contradict mainstream history books.
Yes, anti semitism has long been rife in Europe, but "Poland killed more Jews than Nazi Germany"?
Over what time period are we speaking? 6 years between 1939-1945? Or 100 years? 200 years?
Its a wild claim that I don't think can substantiated.

Knowing that the Rothchilds bought Jerusalem in 1829 was a big surprise for me and really should be in history books but it's not .

The thing about Nazis, especially the SS in charge of the camps is they got their victims to do most of the labor, the camps were built by forced labor, and most of the dirty work was done by the victims, too. Groups of prisoners chosen from the camp population called Sonderkommando were made into work groups that handled most of the labor surrounding the peoples to be exterminated from the moment they arrived to the moment they went up the crematorium chimney.
The SS handled admin., guarding and oversaw the day to day operations. The brutality directed out to work groups was also handled by Kappos chosen for their simple brutality and or desire to survive.
But make no mistake about it, even though the NAZIs got others as much as possible to do their dirty work for them, they invented the camps, financed and directed their building to exterminate anyone who got in their way.
Take a look at the history of the boar war, south africa...

I've not only read it but studied the history. Yea Germany didn't like the Jews, at that time not many did. Germany made a push to purge the jews from Germany prior to WW2. Hitler Tried to negotiate settlement areas for the Jews. The Jews nationless took financial influence on Germany, an already war-torn, broken, rebuilding nation.
The Jews ensured WW2 with the financial blockade on Germany.
ESPECIALLY WHEN THE POLES GOT THE BACKING OF THE BRITS
