Polish intelligence contribition in WW 2 confirmed

Radio Polonia:
Polish foreign minister Adam Rotfeld considers the report on Poland’s contribution to the Allied victory in World War Two compiled by the joint Polish-British commission of historians as a meaningful development in the countries’ mutual relations. The document presented in London points to 44% of British intelligence information as coming from Polish agents and sources. Minister Rotfeld, who is on a working visit to the UK, said the report is accompanied by mixed feelings. On the one hand, Poland is very satisfied by the British authorities’ consent to opening war intelligence files to Polish historians. On the other, he underscored, the question arises: why has it taken 60 post-war years for the move to be made? Adam Rotfeld added, the report confirms the tremendous contribution of Poles to the anti-Nazi effort and the ultimate victory of the Allies. The head of Polish diplomacy also pointed to the increased meaning of intelligence documents found in British archives about the Holocaust passed on by Polish sources during the war. Now, nobody can say they had no knowledge about the genocide, Rotfeld said.
