Rosicki, Rosicki & Associates: Kosciuszko Foundation Successfully Campaigns for Terminology Change
After collecting more than 307,000 signatures on a petition, the Kosciuszko Foundation has succeeded in ending a longtime media practice of referring to Nazi World War II concentration camps as “Polish death camps” and variations thereof.
