WARSAW – Polish lawmakers condemned Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad yesterday for recently dismissing the Holocaust as a myth, and said such statements were “absolutely unacceptable for Poland, on whose land Nazis set up death camps.”

“The memory of the Holocaust in Poland is vivid and painfully present,” the parliamentary commission on foreign relations said in a statement. “Millions of Polish citizens fell victim to the genocidal and anti-Semitic policies of the Third Reich.”
