The latter has demanded it to be reviewed.
Amid objections from the United States, and especially Israel, Polish President Andrzej Duda on Tuesday signed a controversial Holocaust bill into law. He added that he will tell his hosts, "I came to tell the truth where the truth occurred - and it's not dependent on any law".
The United States is "disappointed", Tillerson said Tuesday, following Duda's final approval of a law introduced on January 26 in the Polish parliament.
The law orders jail time or fines on anyone calling the Nazi murder of Jews during World War II a "Polish crime", or Nazi death camps "Polish death camps". Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman Emmanuel Nahshon has said that there is no question the World War II camps in occupied Poland were German death camps.
According to figures from the US Holocaust Memorial Museum, the Nazis, who invaded Poland in 1939, also killed at least 1.9 million non-Jewish Polish civilians. For the many Poles and their descendants that risked their lives to help the Jewish people - as indeed is recognised by Yad Vashem in the Righteous Among the Nations where over 25% of the overall honourees are Polish nationals - the use of "Polish death camps" is highly offensive. However Poland's government spokeswoman said there would be no such visit.
Duda said Tuesday he will sign the law though he would also ask the Constitutional Tribunal to suggest possible amendments.

The warning says: "There is a 90% probability of severe cold weather, icy conditions and snow between Sunday and Friday". However, widespread showers are expected to cross the country from the east from the afternoon through the evening.
Efraim Zuroff, another Holocaust historian who serves as the Eastern Europe director of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, said that large swaths of the population either directly killed or else gave up their Jewish neighbors' whereabouts to the Nazis.
"We are also concerned about the repercussions this draft legislation, if enacted, could have on Poland's strategic interests and relationships", she said.
"The blood of Polish Jews cries from the ground, and no law will silence it", Bennett later said in a statement.
The controversial legislation was signed into law Tuesday, Polish President Andrej Duda, his office said, a day after a small group of far-right advocates demonstrated in front of the presidential palace demanding that he okay the bill. In addition, MPs point out that frank dialogue, free exchange of opinions and academic freedom are under the threat of criminal prosecution in connection with the adoption of the law "that is incompatible with democratic values".
The country's Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely warned last month it could be a "slippery slope" that could be used to "minimise the responsibility of those Poles who participated in the war crimes committed by the Nazis".
But Israel has denounced the law as a whitewashing of history that prevents discussion about the role that some Poles played in facilitating Nazi crimes.
