Less guarded protest in Israel alleged that some of Poland's critics of the term "Polish death camps" are blurring historical truths, and that there is a need for better understanding of sensitivities around the issue in Poland, Israel and beyond.

Meanwhile, at an Israeli government cabinet meeting in Jerusalem on Sunday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said, "We have no tolerance for distorting the truth, historical revisionism or Holocaust denial".

I strongly oppose it. "One can not change history and the Holocaust can not be denied", Netanyahu stated.

The Israeli Foreign Ministry summoned the Polish deputy ambassador to demand the bill be revised, and opposition to the proposed legislation crossed party lines.

Israelis, Jews and countless others affected by the Holocaust shared their disbelief at legislation passed on Friday that provides jail time for the "crime" of referring to "Polish death camps".

"Over the week our ambassador (to Poland) and her team will have talks about this with the Polish leadership, including the prime minister, president and Polish senate", Netanyahu said. As the world marked International Holocaust Remembrance Day, political leaders said the Nazi genocide must always serve as a warning.

"It is an historic fact that many Poles helped the murder of Jews, informed on, turned in and themselves murdered many Jews during the Holocaust and after it", Bennett stated.

With Saturday marking International Holocaust Remembrance Day, Jewish people here in Western New York, and around the world, are making sure the world never forgets the horrors of the Holocaust during the Second World War.

Poland hosted pre-war Europe's largest Jewish population and there were thousands of reported incidents in which Jews were betrayed by non-Jewish Poles - including former neighbors and friends - and where local populations took part in Nazi-led actions to kill Jews. "Auschwitz-Birkenau is not a Polish name", he said.

Warsaw says the bill will not limit freedom to research or speak about the Holocaust. The statement is true only in that there were Nazi death camps on Polish soil.

According to one scholar at Israel's Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial, of the 160,000-250,000 Jews who escaped and sought help from fellow Poles, about 10 to 20 per cent survived.

"The implication of the new law means that in theory, a Jewish Holocaust survivor from Poland who lives in Israel, who may make a statement such as "the Polish people were involved in the murder of my grandfather in the Holocaust" or 'my mother was murdered in a Polish extermination camp, ' would be liable for imprisonment in Poland", Haaretz wrote. "The Poles threw stones at us and cursed us".
