No such things as a 'Polish' concentration camp
I am sure all your readers were deeply moved by the article about Freda Wineman, an Auschwitz survivor, who bravely revisited the camp where she saw her parents and younger brother murdered more than 60 years ago (Survivor revisits death camp, H&H Februar
I am sure all your readers were deeply moved by the article about Freda Wineman, an Auschwitz survivor, who bravely revisited the camp where she saw her parents and younger brother murdered more than 60 years ago (Survivor revisits death camp, H&H February 12).
Could it be noted, however, out of respect for the millions of Poles who lost their lives in WW2, including thousands at Auschwitz, that this was not a Polish concentration camp, as your journalist writes. Following the German invasion of Poland in September 1939, O�wiecim, the Polish town, was annexed by Germany and renamed Auschwitz.

THE term 'Polish concentration camp' is grossly incorrect and misleading. These horrific camps were run by Nazi Germans, many on Polish soil.
A proper way to refer to the camps is: German Nazi Concentration and Extermination Camp.

There were no Polish concentration camps during WW2. All concentration camps were created by Germans on German-occupied Polish territory. Thousands of Poles were killed in them! This is insult to all Poles. Please correct this.
