Netflix has a new tough critic: the sovereign Republic of Poland. Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki filed a complaint this week, asking the U.S. streaming service to make changes to its documentary series “The Devil Next Door” about a Nazi death camp guard who moved to the United States. At issue is a map used in the documentary showing Nazi death camps inside the borders of modern Poland. Concentration camps were built by the Nazis on Polish soil during World War Two, but Morawiecki says the map implied that Poland existed at that time as an independent nation and thus could share responsibility for the Holocaust. In a letter to Netflix CEO Reed Hastings, the Polish Prime Minister said: “As my country did not even exist at that time as an independent state, and millions of Poles were murdered at these sites, this element of “The Devil Next Door” is nothing short of rewriting history.” A Netflix spokesperson told Reuters the company is aware of the concerns and is urgently looking into the matter. Poland is very sensitive to suggestions that it might share any complicity in Nazi crimes committed on its territory. Many in Poland still refuse to accept research showing that thousands of Poles participated in the Holocaust in addition to the thousands who risked their lives to help Jews escape the atrocities.
