The world’s leading internet entertainment service Netflix has said on Thursday that it will tweak a documentary series that showed maps of Nazi concentration camps. This comes after Poland’s prime minister, Mateusz Jakub Morawiecki, made a complaint.
Mateusz said The Devil Next Door series had maps with death camps built by Nazi Germany during World War II inside the borders of modern-day Poland that were established only after the end of the war.
Responding to Prime Minister of Poland, the US streaming and production website, Netflix, said it will amend the maps “to avoid any misunderstanding”.
The Polish government has welcomed the decision by Netflix.
“We are hugely proud of The Devil Next Door and stand by its filmmakers, their research and their work,” Netflix said in a statement published on its Polish Twitter site.
“In order to provide more information to our members about the important issues raised in this documentary and to avoid any misunderstanding, in the coming days we will be adding text to some of the maps featured in the series.
“This will make it clearer that the extermination and concentration camps in Poland were built and operated by the German Nazi regime who invaded the country and occupied it from 1939-1945.”
The Devil Next Door is a documentary series about John Demjanjuk, which premiered on Netflix in 2019. Poland’s prime minister Mateusz Morawiecki criticized the documentary for including a modern-day map of Poland, with the location of Nazi death camps marked on it.
