Israel recalled its top diplomat from Poland on Saturday after the Polish president signed a law that restricts the ability of Jews to recover property seized by Nazi German occupiers and retained by post-war communist rulers. It was reported by Deutsche welle.
The law, which was passed by parliament on Wednesday, is an amendment to Poland's administrative law, which will prevent property ownership and other administrative decisions from being declared void after 30 years.
Prime Minister Naftali Bennett called it "a shameful decision and disgraceful contempt for the memory of the Holocaust" and said "Poland has chosen to continue harming those who have lost everything."
Foreign Minister Yair Lapid said he had instructed Israel's top diplomat in Warsaw, the charges d'affaires, to return home immediately for an indefinite period. He said the new Israeli ambassador to Poland, who was scheduled to leave for Warsaw, will remain in Israel.
