The editor-in-chief of a Jewish news website is under investigation in Poland on suspicion of denying Nazi crimes after asserting that Hitler’s Germany never sought to exterminate the entire Polish nation.

Katarzyna Markusz, a non-Jewish historian and journalist who runs the website Jewish.pl, is due to be questioned next week by officials of the Institute of National Remembrance, Poland’s state-supported historical research body. At issue is her tweet this year stating that “there have never been mass extermination camps for Poles.”
