which country ? Last time I checked Wrocław was a city.
they were two separate sentences and a quote from Princes statement.
Which country ? Which narrow view ? Show me any hostility of Poland toward Lithuania after they regained independence.
I would really like you to understand this one thing.
"Poles" from Lithuania want control of Vilnius.
I have seen political hostility from Lithuanian "Poles" to Lithuanians in Vilnius but not from Poles from Poland.
but I don't get your point... It is our fault that they don't like us ?
That is not my point.
I am only saying my observations, nothing else.
From the Polish people, here in Poland, I have spoken to, they have no idea that their are hostilities towards them in Lithuanian.
I will again make a distinction between Lithuanians, "Poles" from Lithuania and Poles from Poland.
In my opinion they are a young country and need to grow up, If in 15-20 years they won't give up that shit then we should fuck them hard.
I do not want anyone to think I give a shit, I really disliked living there and I could care less about the place, to be honest but that is not the discussion.
Although it must be pointed out that the "Poles" from Lithuania are nothing like any of the Poles I have met from here (i.e. Poland).
In my opinion 50% of people in Wilno region love Poland. :) Just joking ...
We can take other examples,
Ireland - England.
New Zealand - Australia
A basic one way rivalry.
Big country little country.
But the Lithuanians (over 35) have a lot of hate to go round and although I do not wish to be seen as defending them, I must admit they have had a difficult time, from my observations I would say a much worse time than Poland.
I know it is a bit silly of me to compare suffering but it is so evident there.
why Poles were punished for being on allies side.
I could be wrong but i do not think it was the Lithuanians who expelled the Polish but it was the Russians, for fear of the Poles Western Liberal ideals?.
They can't make ethic cleaning there. Miniorities in Europe have the right to their language in offices ,in schools, for their original names, for biligual sings on roads. Poles are not immigrants there.
True but Lithuanian bureaucracy does not need any more complications, trust me on that one ;)
The population of Lithuania stands at 3.3662 million, 84.6% of whom are ethnic Lithuanians who speak Lithuanian which is the official language of the country. Several sizable minorities exist, such as Poles (6.3%), Russians (5.1%), and Belarusians (1.1%).
Poles are the largest minority, concentrated in southeast Lithuania (the Vilnius region). Russians are the second largest minority, concentrated mostly in two cities. They constitute sizeable minorities in Vilnius (14%)
