I guess Lukasz fancies himself as a hotshot prime minister, standing in front of the clamoring Polish masses, in an inevitable rendez-vous with History that befits his destiny, and eloquently roars: "We... "

It's like as if the war ended in 1945, and then u lot went into collective coma until 1990, u then woke up with WWII timeline still so vivid in your heads.

I say move on, get a life.

I suppose people in the west have had about 45 years more than u did to indulge themselves, enjoy liberty and the fruits of private property and free enterprise, which by now have made WWII a distant memory.

I propose to forget Holocaust.It is really very distant and outdated.

She is courage proud woman

Brainy women are a total turn off. I told her that in another thread.

As Shakespeare once said, there must be some mystery in love -- and there can be no mystery between intellectual equals.

I don't feel this opposition to Nord from Poland comes as a suprize to anyone. It's just one more way for Russia to takeover EU and screw Poland in the process. If Poland and say USA were doing this I am sure Germany and Russia would be having a fit.

Germany is looking at this as an investment and not wanting to miss the boat, so to speak. Lets hope they do not cut off their nose dispite their face.

This great Evil called hitler did awaken monsters inside most of them. A big most of them.

All of us have potential monsters hiding within us. It is naive to think otherwise.

I have to throw this out again.....Jane Elliot's classroom excercise about racism that showed her that anyone could turn a class of sweet children into a "bunch of Nazis". She was horrified at what she witnessed unfold before her. if you watch...please watch all parts. It even works with adults, too.

Allow me to disagree. Most people have moved on. Its only the Poles and the Russians that keep on banging on WWII forever, and ever, and ever..

It's like as if the war ended in 1945, and then u lot went into collective coma until 1990, u then woke up with WWII timeline still so vivid in your heads.

In contrary to France and GB, we didn't have a chance for a dialog with Germans after 1945 up until 1989, so I guess you could say that our relationship with them went into a coma. However all the "move on; don't get stuck in the past" sentences are so cliché and are getting old. All the companies that I had the chance to work for either had German partners, German clients or were in fact owned by Germans. I can talk about history and do business with them, no problem at all.

I think that it is you actually who should move on and stop repeating nonsense.

Well I doubt that u had much choice in the matter as, up to recently, anything decent in Poland had to come from Germany and any decent company had to have German partners.

What's ur point anyhow? I personally live in Germany, have been living here for years and have no problem whatsoever with the locals.

Now if u fancy banging on about WWII, please do, am sure u will find many listening ears and eager debaters on this forum.

I was merely pointing out that the Poles and the Russians tend to talk about WWII as if the events were still vivid in their memories whereas most people in the west have moved on, in the sense that WWII events are a distant memory.

They are and need to be talked out to move forward.

that WWII events are a distant memory.

I have forgotten Holocaust.This is the only thing in WW2 I completely don't care about.

That's in part due to what I was taught here in US schools. WW2 was all about the "Holocaust". Funny we could not mix religion with school in public schools, yet Jewish history was aloud. I used to question how partial history could be taught as the truth.
