Poland’s embassy in Berlin says it is “appalled” by training material for teachers produced by a German government office that includes a section about a fictional Polish mother whose son is afraid of coming out because, “as a faithful Catholic, she hates gays and will reject him”. This “reproduces anti-Polish stereotypes and harmful generalisations that Poles hate homosexual people”, says Polish ambassador Dariusz Pawłoś, who is seeking to have the material withdrawn. Poland’s consulate in Munich, meanwhile, announced that it had launched an official intervention over the “scandalous and unacceptable passage, [which] defames Poland, Polish mothers, the family, Catholic religion, tradition and culture”.
