The truth about Poland and the Holocaust

The truth about Poland

The truth about Poland

Story by Stephen J. Thorne

The names are synonymous with Nazi Germany’s diabolical plan to exterminate Europe’s Jewish population: Sobibor, Treblinka, Auschwitz. All of them, and multiple other extermination and concentration camps, were in Poland.

But Poland’s current president, Andrzej Duda, signed a controversial bill making it illegal to accuse the nation of complicity in crimes committed by Nazi Germany, including the Holocaust.

The law, which will next be reviewed by the country’s Constitutional Tribunal, also bans the use of terms such as “Polish death camps” in reference to Auschwitz and other Nazi extermination sites. Violators can be punished by fine or a jail sentence of up to three years.

Passchendaele:
Canada’s brutal victory

Only $14.95 + shipping and taxes

In the fall of 1917, three years into the First World War, the front was a ruined and shattered battlefield of endless craters and mud that trapped both the living and the dead. The Canadian Corps was thrust into this menacing warscape to help Britain, France and Belgium achieve a long-sought goal to destroy the enemy’s will to fight. That did not happen, but the battle of Passchendaele was Canada’s third major victory of 1917.

Sketchbook brings soldiers to life

Story by Stephen J. Thorne

Richard Johnson is an old-school war artist. He’s walked the hard miles in Iraq and Afghanistan, shunning the camera for pencil and sketchbook, speedily yet meticulously recording soldiers at war and peace in shades of grey.

His work has toured the United States, it is in the permanent collections of Washington’s Smithsonian National Museum of American History and the National Museum of the Marine Corps in Virginia and now it is part of a military-themed art exhibition at the Canadian War Museum in Ottawa.

Gaps in long-term care noted by ombudsman

Gaps in long-term care noted by ombudsman

Story by Sharon Adams

Some elderly and disabled veterans are falling into a gap between support provided to help them remain in their homes as long as possible and entry into long-term care, says Veterans Ombudsman Guy Parent.

The Veterans Independence Program (VIP), which helps pay for housekeeping and yard work, is not enough support for some veterans who need extra help to continue to live independently, says his report, Continuum of Care: A Journey from Home to Long-Term Care.

Weapons report finds IS
has a robust supply chain

Story by Stephen J. Thorne

A report by an investigative organization says about 90 per cent of weapons and ammunition used by Islamic State (IS) fighters comes from China, Russia and Eastern European producer states—much of it purchased by the terrorist group’s declared enemies, the United States and Saudi Arabia.

It determined that most of the materiel fell into IS hands through unauthorized transfer—or violations of agreements by which supplier governments prohibit the re-export of materiel by a recipient government without prior consent.
