Today’s news round-up in Poland Kalbar/TFN

Start your day with a summary of today’s top stories from Poland’s leading news sites. – A filmmaker has claimed the Polish Film Institute has tried to censor and block her new film for political reasons, the newspaper Gazeta Wyborcza wrote on Monday. Joanna Grudzinska told the paper her film about Zuzanna Ginczanka, a Polish-Jewish poet who died in the Holocaust, that the Institute had objected to scenes included in the film taken from recent pro-abortion protests organised by the Women’s Strike protest group. Another problem, she added, was that the fact that Gincznaka was betrayed to the Nazis by a Polish woman could also have caused problems with the Institute because it portrayed Polis in a less than heroic light. – The automotive industry is the sector most Poles want to work in, according to a new poll, the newspaper Rzeczpospolita wrote. In the Randstad poll, 54 percent plumped for the automotive sector, followed by the medical sector and then the wood and paper industries, which includes furniture production. The vehicle industry is seen as stable work with good remuneration. – The state-owned broadcaster TVP Info wrote a story on a German historian who has claimed that the vast majority of Germans supported Germany’s fight in WWII. According to research by Thomas Weber, who works at Aberdeen University in Scotland, as the war dragged on Germans were increasingly sceptical about Nazi rule and the role of Hitler but remained wholeheartedly supportive of the war. – In an interview for the broadcaster TVN24, Joanna Trowicz, a member of the interest-rate setting Monetary Policy Council, criticised the decision by the Polish central bank to hang up a banner in public attributing high inflation to the Ukraine war and the pandemic. She said that broadcasting the message "it’s not our fault" the bank was undermining its credibility.
