Polish art collection, parts of which were once the property of Nazis and communists, reopens amid financial controversey

From rare parchments and ancient Egyptian mummies to artworks including a Rembrandt and a prized Leonardo da Vinci portrait, the Czartoryski collection, added to by generations of Polish nobles, is one of the most intriguing and varied in Europe.

Its fate has been a mirror of Polish history: begun in lieu of a national museum at a time when Polish independence was under threat, it was taken to Paris when the country disappeared from the map in the 19th century. Parts were later seized by the Nazis, then grabbed back by the Soviets.

The Nazi death camp where more than one million people perished was liberated on 27 January 1945. As one survivor, now aged 90, prepares to commemorate the date, she explains why the Holocaust must never be forgotten … especially in an age of rising antisemitism and nationalism

Renee Salt had just turned 15 when she arrived at the gates of hell. Her journey with her parents to Auschwitz, the Nazi death camp near Kraków in Poland, was by cattle truck, wedged in with hundreds of other Jews, no food, water or air for 24 hours. On arrival, the men were separated from women and children; Renee, who was born in Poland, never saw her father again.

She and her mother stood in line. The “Angel of Death” – Nazi SS officer Josef Mengele, a doctor who conducted cruel experiments on prisoners – stood at the head of the queue. “Whenever he saw two people holding hands he would split them up with a flick of his hand, one to die and one to live,” she told the Observer. Those sent to the right were taken straight to the gas cham... Show more...

Mayors of Prague, Warsaw, Bratislava and Budapest agree to protect common values

Budapest’s mayor Gergely Karácsony was joined by his counterparts from Warsaw, Prague and Bratislava to sign the document, which promised to promote the “common values of freedom, human dignity, democracy, equality, rule of law, social justice, tolerance and cultural diversity”.

We can appreciate the presidents of Spain and Turkey swapping ideas how to repress dissidents, how to deal with protesters and how to muzzle journalists. The Greek new kid on the block gets closer to Merkel to keep bailing out the Greeks banks at the expense of the harrowing suffering of the working class people of Greece, Trump closer to the Royal family despite saying he doesn't know Prince Andrew, who used to spend time in America groping Epstein's lolitas. Merkel and Macron side to side keeping the incendiary flame of neoliberalism and neofascism going and creating the reasonable havoc.... and so on.

This biopic of the late Tomasz Chada recreates his onstage charisma effectively but his relentless bad behaviour makes him hard to like

Like so many other biopics of musicians from the wrong side of the ring road, this dramatisation of the life of Polish rapper Tomasz Chada wants to find a redemptive moral in the morass of biographical material. The problem is, Chada’s storyline is thin on salvation, given he was an enthusiastic car thief (until prison slowed down his long career in crime), a committed consumer of drugs and alcohol, and an all round toerag to most of the people in his life, including the many women who tried to reform him, and the producer buddy who gave him a big break. Nevertheless, true to his inner good Catholic Polish boy child, he loved his mum and longed for her affection and approval – even though he sort of craps on her, too.

He is played by Piotr Witkowski, whose feline eyes, eat-you-up grin and loping gait give Chada a charisma that helps you sort of see the appeal. His gritty raps about the mean streets of Warsaw and his life of... Show more...

Ruling by EU’s highest court is second landmark judgment against Poland’s judicial policy in recent months

The European Union’s highest court has ruled that Poland broke the law when it sought to lower the retirement age for judges, in a further defeat for the country’s nationalist government.

The European court of justice (ECJ) found that a 2017 policy to lower the retirement age for ordinary judges in Poland was unlawful because it gave too much power to the executive, and ruled that a decision to compel female judges to retire five years earlier than men broke EU equality law.
