Eliahu Salperter wrote: Jews (?) wisely, have been cautious in their statements. Actually that is not true. Many articles have been published in the Jewish papers about the ?unanswered questions? regarding the Popes visit to Poland and to Auschwitz. One of the most scorching attacks on the Pope was carried out by Daniel Goldhagen. His criticism was very similar to Eliahu Salperters. Yesterdays ?Gazeta Wyborcza?, the most popular Polish newspaper run by the Polish Jews, published a long rebuttal of Goldhagens criticism by Prof. Anna Wolff-Poweska. She wrote among others: Intentions of Goldhagen are absolutely different than the intentions of the Pope. Goldhagen considers the visit of Pope Benedict XVI in Auschwitz as a political and historical act, when for the Pope it was his moral and spiritual duty. Goldhagen is interested only in the Jews murdered in Auschwitz; the Pope remembers all the victims of the Nazi crimes.
