    Poles had nothing to do with building the death camps or staffing them. The big reason for Nuremberg was to prevent mass reprisals against Germans After the war Poles almost certainly behaved like those invaded elsewhere - they almost certainly rounded up, shot, & exiled ethnically German Poles. The Cold War precluded exploration of that minor detail, of course. The reason for the Mauthausen quote is not to cry "Sieg Heil", but to whack Jews. VE day was in '45 & Stalin died in '53; how can any view 8 years of rebuilding on devastation as worse than 6 y of history's worse cataclysm? One way is to slyly suggest Shoah -> benefits. p88 HEART OF EUROPE. “In the fumes of the Nazis’ Final Solution, the wartime holocaust also consumed the greater part of Polish Jewry—almost one half the total victims. No one can contemplate this particular crime with anything but horror. Some people, perhaps in Israel as well as in Poland, whilst abhorring the Nazis’ practices, would argue that the resultant separation of two embattled & antagonistic communities has been mutually beneficial. The outbreak of a stage managed pogrom in Kielce would appear to support this view. Others might contend that Poland’s divorce from its former Jewish citizens has deprived it of cultural variety & human talents which it could ill afford to lose.” Poland's numberless lists of wonderful Poles & histories of fabulous, heroic Poland scarce mention benefits Jews provisioned to Poland. Instead, the general summary is “look what Poland did for Jews.” How does such love produce forced exile in 1967? That Poland built its Jewish museum where Hitler said it belonged is difficult to stomach.
