Poland's parliament on Friday adopted the legislation which sets fines or a maximum three-year jail term for anyone who refers to Nazi German death camps as being Polish.
Schudrich, who co-signed a letter criticizing Trump's July appearance, does not believe the government led by Polish President Andrzej Duda is anti-Semitic but said officials have been reticent in condemning prejudice among Duda's supporters until recently.
Poles say they are unfairly held complicit in Nazi war crimes at a time when their country was occupied and an estimated 2.7 million non-Jewish civilians were killed, including a large number of resistance fighters.
"Education, not punitive laws, is essential to building greater awareness of all the facts of what transpired in Poland during World War II and the Holocaust", Markiewicz continued.
On Sunday, the Foreign Ministry said it had summoned Poland's deputy ambassador to express Israel's opposition to the bill.
"Yad Vashem will continue to support research aimed at exposing the complex truth regarding the attitude of the Polish population towards the Jews during the Holocaust". It was conceived in Germany but hundreds of thousands of Jews were murdered without ever meeting a German soldier.
In the eyes of Poland's governing nationalists, the main goal of the measure is to prevent people from ascribing "responsibility or co-responsibility to the Polish nation or state for crimes committed by the German Third Reich - or other crimes against humanity and war crimes".
Poland regards itself as having itself been a victim of Nazi terror and resents being blamed for crimes carried out by Hitler and his gang of murderers.
However, Markiewicz noted, "While we remember the courageous Poles who saved Jews, the role of some Poles in murdering Jews can not be ignored".
Israeli officials are opposed to the proposed law, suggesting it will limit discussion of Polish involvement in the Holocaust. "I don't need Holocaust education from you", responded Lapid.
"No law can change the historical truth", the statement continued, "and there is no place to educate the families of Holocaust survivors, who live every day the memory of their loved ones who perished in the inferno". About 140,000 Poles were imprisoned there, and nearly half of them died.
Poland's ruling Law and Justice (PiS) party has sought to protect the country's image since it came to power in 2015. "Therefore, careless references to "Polish" death camps, and the implication that Poles were somehow responsible for their existence, is certainly objectionable", he said.
