Polish Jews demand apology for events of March 1968

In March 1968, up to 15,000 Polish Jews were deprived of their citizenship by the communist regime and forced to emigrate. Since October, the head of Poland's Shalom-Foundation, Gołda Tencer, has been awaiting an answer from President Lech Kaczyński to her demand that all those Poles who were robbed of their citizenship be simply re-naturalized. Speaking with Zuzanna Dąbrowska, Tencer also asks the president to apologize, on the 40th anniversary of this anti-Semitic campaign. "We are talking about a history that is very much alive, that not only exists in books but in people. It costs so little just to say, 'We are sorry.' Why can't anyone bring themselves to do it? ... For years I have been hearing about protocol, about formal hurdles. What's the big deal? I think you simply have to want to do it. And now is the right time."
