Antisemitic books were on sale outside a Warsaw Church that was hosting a beatification ceremony of revered Catholic figures, attended by Polish leaders.
The books, with titles such as Scum and the Jews in Today’s Poland and Judeopolonia II — Anatomy of Enslaving Poland, were met with no protest from the thousands of worshippers attending Warsaw’s Temple of Divine Providence for the beatification of Cardinal Stefan Wyszynski and Mother Elzbieta Roza Czacka.
Polish President Andrzej Duda, Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki and Jaroslaw Kaczynski, the leader of the ruling Law and Justice Party, were all in attendance for the beatification Mass, which was led by Vatican representative Cardinal Marcello Semeraro.
In addition to the antisemitic books was anti-vaccination literature and other conspiratorial material.
The ceremony took place while Pope Francis was in Hungary condemning antisemitism, which he did again two days later in Slovakia.
