Polish leaders threaten fate of nearly finished WWII museum

1

Poland’s conservative government is taking steps that threaten an ambitious new World War II museum which international experts have spent eight years creating — the latest ideological battle the nation’s nationalistic authorities are waging against the pro-European rivals they ousted from power last year.

The Museum of the Second World War has been under development since 2008 and was due to open next year in Gdansk, where the first shots of the war were fired. The $120 million project was launched with the support of former Prime Minister Donald Tusk, now one of the European Union’s top leaders, a man deeply hated by the head of Poland’s new ruling Law and Justice party, Jaroslaw Kaczynski.

    Witam,

    A ktora fundacja chciala tym muzuem kierowac, niemiecka czy amerykanska? Historia to powazna sprawa, a w Polsce jest za wielu directorow muzeuw i programow ktorzy dokrztalcali sie za fundusze EU albo museum “holocaustu” w USA. Idealnym przykladem takiej dzialnosci w polsce, of kilkadzisieciu lat, trafny przydlad wplywu EU i USA na krztaltowanie co i jak mamy w Polsce pamietc – szczegolnie z historii II wojny “European Network Remembrance and Solidarity” w Warszawie. Tak zwana “fundacja, finansowana jest przez EVZ w Niemczech (Board of Directors = who’s who of German government), prowadzona przez polskich germanistow, zamjujaca sie rownaniem rezimow totalitarych (oba byly okropne – ale powinno sie mowic o zbrodniach Niemieckich w Polsce w oddzielnych rozdzialach, nie tylko paragrafach…) o , tzw. “kolaboracja” Polakow w trakcie wojny, itp. Wielu pracownikow muzeow w Polsce jest prowadzonych przez ludzi “dokrztalconych” przez muzea tzw. “holocaust” – ktorych – w oddalonym od Europy USA – jest wiecej niz Niemcy, Israel, i Polska, razem wziete
