A promotional calendar published by the city of Warsaw has opened old wounds and revived painful memories of Poland's Jewish history.The calendar features a collection of graphic art posters - including one that many say is anti-Semitic. The image, originally created in 1925 for a national newspaper in Poland, features a uniformed man throwing flames at fleeing rats - many of which are wearing yarmulkes. After protests by Jewish organizations in Warsaw, the city administration agreed to cancel a second printing. But Warsaw's mayor has called the calendar a beautiful showcase of Poland's graphic art. The first edition is already in circulation.
