YouTube takes down video about Polish diplomats who helped Jews in WWII: report

YouTube has taken down a video of a student play about a group of Polish World War II diplomats who helped save Jews from the Holocaust, a Polish former oppositionist has said.

Jarosław Papis tweeted on Wednesday that according to the platform, the video “infringes on the violent or graphic content policies”.

“There are only documentary scenes [in the video], no drastic content,” Papis was cited as saying by Poland’s dziennik.pl online newspaper.

He added he suspected that YouTube’s reaction was prompted by an actor in the video who was wearing an SS uniform.

“But how can we present an SS soldier not in uniform?” he was quoted as saying by dziennik.pl, which added that Papis was a Polish Jew.

When asked why he thought YouTube took the video down, Papis replied: “I would prefer to think that it is an algorithm at work rather than ill will.”

Papis was also cited as saying that he has appealed against the removal of the video about the Ładoś Group.

The group, led by Aleksander Ładoś, the Polish government-in-exile’s de facto ambassador to Switzerland, is credited with helping potentially thousands of Jews escape from Poland at a time when the country was under Nazi German occupation.

Among those helped by the group in the early stages of the war was Yosef Burg, a Jewish man who later became one of the founding fathers of the state of Israel, according to a report last year.

Poland’s government in August 2018 announced the recovery of a historical archive documenting the effort in which its diplomats helped rescue Jews from the Holocaust during World War II.

The collection originally belonged to Chaim Eiss (1867-1943), an Orthodox Jewish activist who was a member of the Bern-based group led by Ładoś.

The Israel Hayom newspaper last year described Ładoś as an “unsung hero” who led a massive effort to save thousands of Jews from extermination during the Holocaust.
