Levine Resolution Condemns Polish Collaboration History Revision Law

Friday, June 1, 2018

(Sacramento)  – Truth and historically accuracy are the focus of Assemblymember Marc Levine’s (D-Marin) Assembly Joint Resolution 35. AJR 35 condemns a new law in Poland that makes it a crime to cite Polish cooperation with Nazi’s or mention individual participation in Nazi crimes despite the historical record of this collaboration. The law includes a punishment of up to three years in prison. “This is literally a law about telling the truth,” Assemblymember Levine said to his fellow lawmakers as he presented AJR 35. “As the number of holocaust survivors continues to decrease and anti-Semitism resurges, this resolution ensures California’s commitment to holocaust education in order to prevent said rise in anti-Semitism in both the United States and Europe.”
