Last week, FBI Director James Comey made a speech in Washington in which he called the Holocaust "the most significant event in world history." Parts of the speech, made at the Holocaust Memorial Museum, were published in The Washington Post over the weekend. One particular passage drew much scrutiny – and drew a sharp response from Poland.
"In their minds, the murderers and accomplices of Germany, and Poland, and Hungary, and so many, many other places didn't do something evil. They convinced themselves it was the right thing to do, the thing they had to do. That's what people do. And that should truly frighten us."
