The Polish PM says a map in the film implies Poland was responsible for the death camps when it was actually occupied by Germany.

Poland’s prime minister has asked Netflix to make changes to a documentary about the Nazi death camps.

Mateusz Morawiecki said the series includes a map which locates the death camps inside the borders of modern-day Poland.

He said this implies Poland was responsible for the death camps, when it was actually occupied by Germany in World War Two.

The map appears in a documentary series called The Devil Next Door that chronicles the story of John Demjanjuk, a retired American car worker convicted by a German court in 2011 of having been a Nazi death camp guard during the war.

Mr Morawiecki said in a letter to Netflix’s chief executive Reed Hastings: “There is no comment or any explanation whatsoever that these sites (on the map) were German-operated

“As my country did not even exist at that time as an independent state, and millions of Poles were murdered at these sites, this element of The Devil Next Door is nothing short of rewriting history.”

Mr Morawiecki said he believed the mistake was unintentional and that the company would correct it, either by modifying the map or providing an explanation in the film.
