Probably this is just a sign of stupidity, or arrogance, or both. But "Nazi Poland" is about as correct as "Polish concentration camps". Yes, it happened in Poland, but is it so difficult to understand we had no control over these things at the time?

Sad thing is that such things are published all the time. If it happens in Backwater City Times, it can be to some extent understood. But when it happens in one of the largest newspapers in US it is unacceptable.

That's a bit ridiculous, considering Poland was all but annexed by Nazi Germany and the CCCP. It's not like they were willing members of the AXIS powers.

[Updated: A previous version of this review wrongly characterized the country where Jerzy Kosinski grew up as "Nazi Poland."]
