Blame Canada!

In article written for Canadian newspaper "The Daily Gleaner" by Don Macpherson I read this paragraph: "Schindler was a German industrialist who's been credited with rescuing more than 1,000 Jews during the Holocaust by having them work in his factories rather than being sent to certain death in a Polish concentration camp." What in heck were "Polish concentration camps"? This guy is calling himself professional journalist and he did not check basic historical facts?

What in heck is "Polish concentration camp"???
