Dozens of Holocaust survivors entered the compound of Poland embassy in Tel Aviv to protest against a law that outlaws blaming the Polish nation for crimes committed by Nazi Germany.
The protesters – many aged over 90 – encircled a diplomatic vehicle chanting “No one will forget what you did”.
"No law can erase history” and "the Polish law is a slap in the face of the people of Israel” were among the slogans written on the banners they waved.
Maariv repored one survivor, 95-year-old Shalom Steinberg, shouted: “You should be ashamed. I escaped from Auschwitz and weep every night from the things I went through there.
“Many people like me did not survive, and we will not forget that the Nazis massacred us on your Polish soil.”
Israeli media reported there were plans to set up a protest tent opposite the embassy building in the city.
Poland’s President Andrzej Duda signed the controversial Holocaust bill into law, despite protests an international outcry.
In an unusual move, he asked the country’s Constitutional Court to examine the bill and suggest amendments that could possibly be made.
But any changes are likely to be issued only after the law goes into effect, 14 days following his official signature.
