Demolition of anti-fascist memorials in Poland: Falsifications about country’s liberation from Nazi rule
By DOUGAL MACDONALD
On June 22, 2017, the Polish government’s lower house voted to amend the “decommunization laws” to demolish all monuments and memorials honouring the Soviet Union’s liberation of Poland from the Nazis.
