    The Polish Embassy in the United States has threatened to sue Mattel if it refuses to recall a game which refers to Poland during WWII as "Nazi Poland."

    Poland's government is demanding toy manufacturer Mattel to recall a trivia game which refers to Nazi Germany-occupied Poland during WWII as "Nazi Poland."

    The incident happened only days after FBI Director James Comey said that not only Germany but also Poland was a home to "murders and accomplices" during the Holocaust.

    "These things happen all the time. This is the effect of the lack of not only an imagination, but an elementary knowledge of history. Unfortunately, this is a frequent occurrence in the US, which we have become certain of in the past few days," Polish Foreign Minister Grzegorz Shetyna told Polish radio.

    Three million copies of the game have been sold, according to the packaging, and the game is sold at major online retailers such as Amazon.
