#74 episode

I was a fan of “Female criminals” until I got to the episode #74 hyena of Auschwitz. I was APPALLED by the lack of basic research in this episode. Firstly, Ravensbrueck is in Germany ( not Poland) and secondly, and most importantly, this was NOT a Polish concentration camp! There are NO POLISH concentration camps, period! There are Nazis (or German) concentration camps. I feel deeply offended that the authors of this podcast propagate the unfair and untrue bias against Polish people and suggest that Poles were responsible for the concentration camps. I also wonder if the authors are also dropping the ball on research in other episodes. Who is checking for historical accuracy? What type of journalism is that? Needlessly to say, I will not listen to any further episodes. I am extremely disappointed by this podcast. Awful job.
