Poland has developed much over the past years. It wouldn't have been possible without EU subsidies. Poland will continue receiving EU money in the coming years, but it hesitates to fulfill its obligations to the Union.
The Council of Europe has demanded that Poland change how it appoints judges. That may be too little, too late: A new law seems intended to do away with the judiciary's independence, DW's Bernd Riegert reports.
In 1968, the Polish Communist party declared thousands of Jews enemies of the state and forced them to leave Poland. Fifty years later, historians and witnesses warn of a revival of Polish anti-Semitism.
Poland refuses to reinstate the rule of law, yet happily accepts EU funding. Authorities in Brussels can no longer accept this. It puts the bloc at risk of falling apart, says DW's Bernd Riegert.
