Cardinal Jozef Glemp said in an interview that neither he nor the Polish Catholic Church he leads had adequately understood the significance of the Auschwitz death camp as a symbol for Jewish people. "Yes, there were some mistakes committed by the church. . . . We actually were not aware that there would be such deep feelings on the part of Jews toward this place. We actually did not understand the Shoah (Holocaust) doctrine," Glemp said at his Warsaw residence.
