Polish officials have intervened to prevent an author accused of anti-Semitism from receiving an award at a Polish diplomatic outpost in the United States. A private U.S.-based Polish organization had planned to give awards at the Polish consulate in New York this week to three people. One, Polish author Eva Kurek, has made statements that many deem anti-Semitic. Poland is already under fire for passing a law earlier this year that criminalizes discussion of the country’s collaboration in the Holocaust. That measure has drawn condemnation from Jews around the world.
