Polish President Andrzej Duda announced in a press conference Tuesday that he will sign his country’s controversial Holocaust bill into law. This bill will make it illegal to accuse Poland of being complicit with crimes involving Nazi Germany and will outlaw terms like “Polish death camps.” Violations to this law will be met with either a fine or jail time. Duda explained his actions by stating, "We have the right to be judged according to facts and accordingly, as the President of the Polish Republic, I have taken the following decision. After analyzing the situation and the bill, I have decided that I will sign it.”
