    Poland’s ambassador to the United States has sent a letter of protest to director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) James Comey over alleged historical revisionism, the Polish Embassy in Washington, DC said in a statement Saturday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — In an op-ed published by the Washington Post late Thursday, Comey suggested that Poland shared responsibility for the Holocaust.

    The Polish Embassy said it took immediate action after Comey’s “unacceptable statement.”

    Hours after the publication, Polish Ambassador Ryszard Schnepf sent a letter to the FBI chief “protesting against the falsification of history, especially for accusing Poles of perpetrating crimes which not only did they not commit, but which they themselves were victims of,” the embassy said.

    In his letter, Schnepf also “clearly and deliberately” describes the fate of Poles under German occupation.

    The embassy concluded by noting that the largest group of names on the wall of the righteous at the US Holocaust Memorial Museum are those of Poles.
