Polish Prime Minister Beata Szydlo was criticized for the speech she gave at the Auschwitz concentration camp. About it reports BBC News.
Speaking at a memorial ceremony in the former death camp, the Prime Minister said: “In the current turbulent times of Auschwitz is a lesson to us and teaches us that to protect the country’s security and the lives of citizens should be done everything possible”.
The opposition immediately accused the policy that she tried thus to justify anti-migrant policies of his office and “to force the poles to fear of migrants”. The President of the European Council Donald Tusk said that “the Polish Prime Minister has no right to say such words in this place.”
The press service of the government, in response, explained that the statement Szydlo was taken out of context. “If need be, criticism in any comments will find something to complain about,” he complained to the press Secretary of the Cabinet Rafal Bochenek. However, the message with a quote from the speech of Prime Minister was immediately removed from the microblog of the ruling party “law and justice”.
It Beata Szydlo in Auschwitz was dedicated to the 77th anniversary of the arrival in camp of the first echelon of Polish and Jewish prisoners. At the end of the funeral ceremony, the Prime Minister signed a decree on the construction of Auschwitz the new Museum.
