Jewish Scene: Veteran youth guide says he was violently attacked by Polish guards at former Nazi concentration camp, ordered by police to pay high fine or spend 24-hour in detention for ‘disrupting public order.’
"It’s unthinkable that the people of what is known as the Auschwitz Museum would be so insensitive to Jewish groups," he says. "It’s unthinkable that they would be intolerant towards Jews singing the songs their grandparents sang on their way to the gas chambers. It’s unthinkable that a guard would shout at us as if we were prisoners in a camp and he were the kapo. That’s exactly how we felt, and the students were hurt by it."
