Christian-Jewish dialogue is one of the most distinguishable results of the Conciliar Declaration Nostra Aetate, issued by the Catholic Church on 28 October 1965. The theological implications of the declaration are visible in Catholic theologians' reflection, especially in the USA and Western Europe. The echoes of this debate are barely audible in Poland. Similarly to Judaism, also in Christianity there is no one and only answer to the Holocaust. It even seems that the attitude towards this event, to large extend, polarized Catholic theologians. It so happens that conservative tendencies in theology are usually connected with the unwillingness to incorporate the Holocaust into the reflection on the essence of Christianity. At the same time, open theology discerns a necessity not only to include the Shoah in the theology, but even to perceive it as an indispensable point of reference as well. Particularly distinctive in the Christian-Jewish dialogue in Poland is the opinion of Father Waldemar Chrostowski. Apart from him, this subject was dealt with by Fathers Michal Czajkowski, the Jesuit Stanislaw Musial and Romuald Jakub Weksler-Waszkinel. Besides, Father Waclaw Hryniewicz presented an interesting suggestion.
