"This is a problem not only for us, but I think it is a problem for Poland", Goldschmidt said.
Police in Tel Aviv have begun an investigation because of inscriptions on the door of the Polish embassy in Israel. He suggested to Morawiecki that he would be branded a criminal in Poland for telling the story.
Poland's government said Morawiecki's comments were not meant to deny the Holocaust or allege that Jewish victims bore responsibility for "Nazi German-perpetrated genocide". Holocaust scholars estimate that Poles might have either killed or helped Germans kill as many as 200,000 Jews.
Israel cancels plans to send National Service volunteers on a trip to Poland before Passover in reaction to the Polish premier's statement that there were "Jewish perpetrators" of the Holocaust. The US State Department has also urged the Polish government to review its new law.
Polish embassies, Morawiecki said, were requested on 260 instances to respond to statements about Polish death camps, a term that he says should be taken with a grain of salt.
Polish authorities say they just want to protect Poland from being depicted as a collaborator of the Nazis when the country was Adolf Hitler's victim and suffered through almost six years of war and occupation.
The Israelis have been furious about the legislation, which Mr Netanyahu has described as an attempt to rewrite history and deny the Holocaust. "In these awful times, there were individuals among all nations, who were ready to make gestures of the greatest mercy", the Polish prime minister said.
"The idea of comparing the victims and those that [murdered] them during the Holocaust, and during the period of the Second World War, is unacceptable", the opposition leader said.
Thousands of Poles risked their lives to protect Jewish neighbours during the war.
Some 3 million Jews who lived in pre-war Poland were murdered by the Nazis, accounting for about half of all Jews killed in the Holocaust.
"And unfortunately, there were also individuals, who by collaborating with Nazi Germans, showed the darkest side of human nature", he wrote.
Israeli Labor Party lawmaker Itzik Shmuly, who is pushing for a counter bill in the Israeli parliament to criminalize the denial of Nazi collaboration, quipped on Twitter that "the next step of Morawiecki's pathetic project to erase the crimes of the Polish people is probably going to be blaming the Jews for their own Holocaust and presenting the Nazis as victims of the circumstances".
Thousands of Poles are believed to have collaborated with the Nazis, resulting ion the death of many thousands of victims, according to Efraim Zuroff, Eastern Europe director for the Simon Wiesenthal Center.
