Dear Friends,

It is with a heavy heart that we have decided to retire our beloved Forum Detroit. It has served the Polonia Detroit for over 10 years, and was a source of joy for many. However, after many months of inactivity, the time has come to bid it farewell.

Deepest and warmest thanks to all those who contributed to Forum discussions over the years, either by sharing their thoughts or reading those of others. Your presence and participation served as a building block of this online polish community.

Knesset to adopt resolution against use of term "Polish death camp"

The Israeli parliament is expected to adopt a special resolution condemning the use of the term "Polish death camps" when describing German Nazi camps in WWII occupied Poland.

Israel plans to pass the resolution at a special session of the parliament - or Knesset - to be held in Krakow on January 27 in celebration of the 69th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, the TVN24 broadcaster reports. Sixty members of the Knesset, led by chairman of the parliament Yuli Edelstein, will call on world media to stop using the term "Polish death camp" when describing Auschwitz or other German Nazi camps. The resolution will also call on media to use the term "German Nazi camps located on Polish territory." Poland's foreign ministry has supported a campaign by the US-based Kosciusko Foundation to stamp out the use of the offensive term in US media and elsewhere. In May 2012, President Barack Obama referred to "a Polish death camp" while posthumously awarding the Presidential Medal of Freedom to Jan Karski. After complaints by the Polish foreign ministry a representative of the Obama administration said the President "misspoke" and "was referring to Nazi death camps in German-occupied Poland."

That’s all, folks
Przekażmy sobie znak pokoju.
Hasta la vista, Vaya con Dios
Я возвращусь, Ich werde zurück sein, Je reviendrai, Estarei de volta, Θα είμαι πίσω, I červnu se zpět, Leszek vissza, وحقوق عودة
