In his Dec. 10 letter, Teodor Polak criticizes Deborah Lipstadt for exaggerating the extent of anti-Semitism in Poland, indicating the actions, allegedly, of a few are used to tar an entire people. That can be a reasonable argument, but he undermines it by showing that he does not recognize his own anti-Semitism.
This chairman of the Polish American Congress, Los Angeles, blames Jews for the "bad fate" of contemporary Polish-Jewish relations. After all, Polak claims, "Communism was forced on Poland with significant participation by Polish Jews. The terror followed."
