Blinken: US ‘deeply concerned’ by Polish bill blocking Holocaust victims from reclaiming property

U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken said on Wednesday that the United States is “deeply concerned” by legislation passed by the Polish parliament earlier in the day barring Holocaust survivors and their descendants from reclaiming property seized by the country’s communist regime.

Blinken called on Polish President Andrzej Duda not to sign the bill into law, or to refer it to Poland’s constitutional tribunal.
