Some corrections to Newsweek's insidious propaganda are due:
"in a bid to distance Poland from the atrocities of the Nazi regime."
-> to remind the viewers of the atrocities of the German (Nazi) regime.
"Auschwitz was built in the east European country, along with several other concentration camps, as part of the Nazis’ ethnic cleansing of Jews and other minorities during World War II."
As you can see, even such an "objective" article in the US Press is tendentious by implying that Poles were responsible for the German camps and thus were Hitler's willing helpers.
