International Holocaust Day.

Good thing they sent Rex Tillerson. Trump would have likely commented that "bad things were done on many sides, on many sides."

In Poland, it is now illegal to mention that Poles helped the Germans kill off Polish Jews, or mention that death camps were in Poland.

This is also the anniversary of the Apollo 1 fire in 1967. NASA has not had much luck with flying spacecraft in January.

The way I read it, the term “Polish Death Camps” is illegal, but “Death Camps in Poland” (perhaps needing to be prefaced with “German”) is not. I don’t like the law, and feel it’s a little self-deluding, but understand the annoyance at Polish Death Camp references. Most nations had citizens who fought under the Nazi banner, and most still have people who believe in this hatred, ignoring it does little good.

I was watching on Satellite TV both Space Shuttle voyages on those mornings (I am adicted to flying machines of every type, except helicopters: I prefer autogiros) and was speechless for the rest of those mornings. Those Space Explorations should be done with drone ships, from my point of view.

I do not understand how come they can "celebrate" International Holocaust Day, if it's ilegal even to mention that death camps were in Poland. It's like if they make ilegal to mention herr Adolf in Germany...(or the VW!) and celebrate his birthday.
