This is disgusting, I thought Germany has evolved on this point beyond the point of no return, "Polish camps" wow well then I don;t know why my family members weren't released from Auschwitz and Bergen-Belsen maybe they weren't the right kind of Polish. Just when you start believing in progress, in hope, in a better world, shit like this happens.

I don't get it. What is the problem here?
It is impossible to believe this death-camps were led by polish after you have seen the movies. Personal I can't remember the exact scene by which this man is refering to but I could imagine that they were called "polish" just because there were mostly polish people inprisoned. The term "Polenlager" (polish camp) or "Zigeunerlager" (gypsy camp) were usually used by the SS in reference to different parts of a big camp because people were seperated by the identities they had following Nazi definitions.

It's a ridiculous controversy in my opinion. Who doesn't get what "polish death camps" means in this context, is lost anyway. The movie never had the claim to be relevant for totally uninformed audience. Besides this was a historical movie that obviously uses a language and terms that should be avoided today.

Nazi German camps located in German-occupied Poland.

Surely no controversy, isn't it?

If that exact statement was always used to describe the camps, I assure you there wouldn't be controversy(at least in this case).

thanks for the clarification, it's still a bit too soon to not react for many of us. cheers

Well afterall it's a drama series (and not a documentary for those of you who haven't seen it) depicting five Germans during the war. What terminology do you think would be used by people at the front during ww2?

I'll give it top grades for costumes and settings, but the plot was way too thin with one miraculous event after the other happening.

The terminology used by Germans throughout the WWII: Generalgouvernment fur die besetze polnische Gebiete (General-government for the occupied Polish territories), and - if one say about Auschwitz - 1000-year Reich

Minor mistake: General government for the occupied Polish territories.

You may find this interesting...

Number of churches, places of worship in today's Lviv/Lwow per religion:
- 42 Ukrainian Catholic churches (almost all are converted former Roman Catholic churches)
- 12 Orthodox churches (again, mostly converted former Roman Catholic churches)
- 9 Protestant churches (and places of worship)
- 5 Roman Catholic churches (before WW2 there were over 35 Roman Catholic churches) *
- 1 Jewish synagogue

* most Roman Catholic inhabitants of Lwow/Lviv have been expelled to Poland in its new borders or killed during WW2

Around 19,5% inhabitants of today's Lviv/Lwow are fluent in Polish.

If you want to know a bit more about the city, I recommend 2 Youtube channels (in Polish):
Kurier Galicyjski
TV POLwowsku

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Number of churches, places of worship in today's Vilnius/Wilno Old Town per religion:
- 21 Roman Catholic churches
- 4 Orthodox churches
- 1 Ukrainian Catholic church
- 1 Protestant church
- 1 Jewish synagogue

In Vilnius/Wilno city, there are about 19,4% Poles (in Vilnius/Wilno District Municipality over 50%). Of course, the number is so low due to the massacres and Polish population transfers during and after WW2.

Youtube channel about Vilnius/Wilno:
Wilnoteka

Interior of Church of St. Mary Magdalene in Lwow/Lviv

Before WW2 and now

In the 1960s, most of the interior was plundered or destroyed, including the side altars, sculptures and ambo, only the organ and altar have survived today.

Roman Catholics are trying to restore the church, which at the moment remains the property of the state.

Hmmm, I thought you had similar style in Lithuania at that time. Hadn't you have in Lithuania the period of "National Lithuanian" architecture in 1920s, based on barocco, renaissance and other simplified historical styles - merged with modern technologies and Ebezener Howard's garden city concept?

I am asking because thread about Lithuanian pre-war architecture shows large similarity to what was built in Poland at the same time (modernism of 1930s).

These baths are already gone. Few years ago were razed to the ground because of poor technical condition.
