    Chris, As a matter of fact, I was in Warsaw last week for the first time. Before my trip, I had no real opinion of the poles besides having close Polish friends (gentiles) and knowing its controversial history, having bother resistants and active nazis... upon arrival, I stopped by the stand of the tourist office and asked for the ghetto... The woman answered "what ghetto, there is NO ghetto in Warsaw!". So I said "I know my history, please indicate on the map where the ghetto is". She replied that there was one (according to her SMALL!) but it was during the war, not now!. I took the bus to the new museum where a memorial is and after my visit of the site and other sites such as the cemetery and other tiny remembrance sites, realized that they (the poles?! the polish goverment?) tried covering up history as barely nothing is left. The main sites are the museum and the cemetery (jewish founded!!!!!!). I saw few and small signs on buildings mentioning facts but too few. I saw a lot of signs on building mentioning historical facts of Polish history but pre war for most, or post war... I realized that Jews were the elite of the Polish society and when they were eradicated, left an empty country which took a few years to recover. Now they managed to change historical fact by being the sole victims. I am aware that a few were victims indeed but lots participated in the Nazi system. Lets be honest: there is a reason why Auschwitz and so many camps were located in Poland...
