The Civility of Oppression

History and politics in Poland

Interview with Valentin Behr

On January 26, 2018 the Polish parliament passed a law that makes it an offence to “assign responsibility or joint responsibility to the Polish nation or the Polish parliament for Nazi crimes committed by the Third Reich […], or for other war crimes or crimes against humanity”. In this interview, Valentin Behr, who holds a doctorate in political science, demonstrates that this law results from the policies of conservative ruling PiS (Law and Justice) party regarding Polish history.
