Jewish leaders in Poland say they are offended Israel's acting foreign minister said Poles "sucked anti-Semitism with their mothers' milk". Unlike other countries occupied by Germany, Poland did not have a collaborationist government.

Many Poles still refuse to accept research showing thousands participated in the Holocaust in addition to the thousands who risked their lives to help the Jews - and feel the West has failed to recognise Poland's own wartime suffering.
