An old report pointed to Polish antisemitism post-WW2

The Simon Wiesenthal Center obtained a 1946 report about attitudes in Poland that indicated antisemitism was very deeply rooted, and could explain why it still is today:
A US State Department report from 1946, which was declassified in the 1980s, states that Poland was highly anti-Semitic before the Nazi occupation during the Second World War. The report was obtained by the Simon Wiesenthal Center and released on Thursday, the same day that the controversial Polish Holocaust Law went into effect.

The report explains that anti-Semitism in Poland is deeply rooted in the country’s history. “Polish anti-Semitism was preached by political parties and church heads and practiced by officials high and low. By 1939, it was one of the distinguishing factors of the country’s political, social and economic life,” the document states.

[...] The State Department concluded in the report that due to the strong anti-Semitic foundation in Poland, anti-Semitism in the European nation “is unlikely to diminish.”
Well I guess that explains how we got to this point. It's apparently still lurking around the corner, if you'll put it that way, in Polish neighborhoods. Now the challenge is how to persuade them to stop? If anything, nobody should let their offensive, divisive "law" intimidate them.
