Poland’s house of Parliament approves Holocaust law


Poland’s lower house of Parliament voted on Wednesday to remove jail penalties for suggesting the nation was complicit in crimes against Jews from a Holocaust law that angered the United States and Israel.

Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki asked parliament to amend the law on Wednesday morning – an unexpected announcement that came as his ruling Law and Justice Party (PiS) seeks to bolster security ties with Washington and faces heightened scrutiny from the EU.
