Nationalist lawmakers say focus should be on Polish ‘exceptionality,’ not universal message of civilian suffering

Strange design..

GDANSK, Poland (AP) — It was supposed to be the first museum in the world to tell the story of World War II in its entirety by focusing on all the nations caught up in that global conflict. But it has fallen foul of changing political priorities in its Polish home, and as it opened its doors for the first time Monday, it’s facing an uncertain future.

Poland’s WWII museum under political bombardment
Law and Justice government fires director and wants to present a different perspective at new institution in Gdańsk.
By CLAUDIA CIOBANU 5/15/17, 4:00 AM CET

They were right to be wary of the government’s reaction.
