A quater of a million men women and children were butchered in ways you could only begin to imagine - whilst the rest jostled for self interest - and when it was all over - the Poles were "gagged" by the allies so they could celebrate "their" victory with a clear conscience - and that those who survived the soviet executions - those who remain to this date fighting the uprising - like lost souls looking for closure - in this - unfinished business.
You will never know.
Who are we preaching to here?
Many of us on this forum have lived here in Poland for years, I myself for eight years. You do not see Polish people crying over what was, rather the opposite they are survivors, and proud of this.
I have asked the question over the years to countless Polish people, "are you angry at what happened in the past?"
Not one person that I can recall answered yes, as their answer to me is, "what is the point, what is done is done and in the past."
You cannot go through your life with a chip on your shoulder as the burden is too heavy to carry, especially from Poland's history. My wife's grandmother was tortured and raped in Majdanek by the Ukrainian guards, but until the day she died she never hated anyone, and I loved this wonderful soul.
Nearly every family in Poland has a similar story of persecution or loss in some way. But it time to move on, and by this I don't mean forget, but Poland needs to keep some sense of pride and stop playing the victim and be the country that succeeds for a change.
What I am doing is just echoing what many Polish people have told me over the years, and if you wish to blame someone for the injustice of what happened to Poland at the London Victory Parade of 1946, fine then as a British guy you can use me as a whipping post.
