Polish Jews send matzah to TV boss who read out antisemitic poem

The Jewish Community of Warsaw sent matzah to a public television official accused of antisemitism after he mentioned the Jewish food on air while denouncing anti-government protesters.

Marcin Wolski, the director of the TVP2 state-funded channel, read a poem that he wrote saying protesters outside the Polish parliament were “handing out matzah” during anti-government protests, suggesting Jews were behind the demonstrations against proposed curbs on the media by Poland’s ruling right-wing Law and Justice party.

The Jewish Community of Warsaw also filed a complaint for racist rhetoric with the National Council on Radio and Television, which has guidelines against airing such content.

Anna Chipczynska, president of the Jewish Community of Warsaw, included in the matzah delivery to the station a leaflet on how to fight antisemitic rhetoric.
