From Poland with Love
It can’t be easy to be Polish.
No, I don’t refer to the “sitting-alone-in-the-darkness” bit of it, rather to the fact that almost every time Poland makes the international headlines it’s not for its fascinating cities, tasty beer or rich cultural life, but rather somehow connected to the Holocaust. Just a few days ago it happened again: everyone — at least in Israel — was talking about the theft of the “Arbeit macht frei” sign over the gate to Auschwitz.
Luckily, the sign has been recovered already and today I note that Yediot reports that the suspected thieves apparently were going to smuggle the sign out of Poland and deliver it to someone in — Sweden.
