Someone recently asked my dad (who survived the Holocaust, joined the partisans during WWII, and knows a thing or two about what the rise of fascism looks like) what he thought of Poland’s new law that restricts how one can talk about the Holocaust in that country. He said, “It looks like it did back in the 30s. It’s actually worse in some ways.” Madeleine Albright in the NYT: “We may be encouraged that most people in most countries still want to live freely and in peace, but there is no ignoring the storm clouds that have gathered. In fact, fascism — and the tendencies that lead toward fascism — pose a more serious threat now than at any time since the end of World War II.”
