In the article Life inside the concentration camps of Scotland, ( JC, Jan 15), Simon Webb left an inaccurate and unfair impression of Polish government antisemitism.
Webb says that “Poles who had been serving with the German army… were handed over to the Polish authorities… who promptly enlisted them”.
Most Poles captured while in forced German conscription — not ‘‘service’’ — then volunteered to fight under British command. They were carefully vetted and many went on to make horrendous sacrifices in defeating their conquerors at Falaise in 1944. Neither these men nor the Polish government deserve Webb’s treatment.
