Anyone who insists on using the term “Polish death camps” is believing in propaganda that was invented by the Nazis. I talk about this in my most recent video:
West German intelligence officer and former Nazi operative Alfred Benzinger is credited with coming up with the term in 1956 as a subtle yet invidious way to shift the focus of guilt away from his compatriots. Its since fallen into fairly common use, although often as a lazy slip of the tongue rather than an attempt to wound.
From the Times of Israel:
In 1956, a group of former Nazis working as West German intelligence agents coined terminology that arguably became the most viral — and longest lasting — propaganda born out of the former Hitler regime: “Polish death camps.”
