This chapter reflects on the essays of Revd Stanisław Musiał and Revd Waldemar Chrostowski. In the light of historical experience, in listening to the Revd Henryk Jankowski, the author cannot but associate him with the Nazis. Were the Revd Jankowski one of thousands of ordinary priests, nobody would care. However, he is a powerful figure. The chapter argues that the Revd Jankowski is a politician. As such, he could become a leader of the extreme right in Poland. The fact mentioned by Revd Chrostowski, that socialism had developed in Germany at the end of the previous century, illuminates nothing. The socialists of that time had done nothing particularly evil. The chapter then asks how the fact that they existed explain (excuse) contemporary antisemitism.

Keywords:   Stanisław Musiał, Waldemar Chrostowski, Henryk Jankowski, Nazis, extreme right, Poland, socialism, Germany, socialists, antisemitism
