Please consider writing your Congressman regarding HR1226. 
We feel Poland should not be subject to the surveillance by the State Department’s Office of Holocaust Issues for compliance with the Prague Conference’s Terezin Declaration of 2009 which would force Poland to pay enormous amounts of retribution for war thefts and crimes inflicted by the invading country, not Poland, who was so clearly a victim of WWII.
