Probably my mistake. I thought both his parents were 100% Poilsh M but I'm trusting me memory.

Just checked and you are 100% right M (as usual, good on you)

andy warhol was born and bred in USA.. his family did have Slovakian roots, but he was 100% American, apart from his name. How about Marie Curie.. wasnt she Polish?

yes, she was. Her maiden name was Sklodowska. She married Pierre Curie when after moving to France, where she did most of her scientific work.

And you wonder why people call Poles thieves....

Klose is an ex-Silesian like my family is and Kopernikus stems from a german family and spoke german, not polish....but hey...who cares...you decide they are polish then they are polish basta!

You have so few famous people with achievements compared to your neighbours you have to grasp at straws to declare them somehow polish...that is so disgusting...so polish!

Stolen from Poland by the Germans, come on, lets face it if your great leader Adolf had got his way we'd be speaking German in England instead you got your ass kicked and by a number of brilliant fighter piolots from Poland maybe we could name a few of them here as famous Polish people :)

Klose is an ex-Silesian like my family is and Kopernikus stems from a german family and spoke german, not polish....but hey...who cares...you decide they are polish then they are polish basta

I think you'll find a lot of Polish were forced to speak German :-(

You have so few famous people with achievements compared to your neighbours you have to grasp at straws to declare them somehow polish...that is so disgusting...so polish!

Spoken like a true German, are you not forgetting that the Germans were so afraid of the Polish and their inteligence they tried exterminate them

Take the word of some x-nazi I dont think so.

Yeah....Germans shake in their boots whenever they think of Poland!

:)

PS: Most people when asked about their most famous people would list world wide renowned scientists, inventors, poets....not third class sportsmen who nobody outside knows (and who often also start for foreign countries)...:)

So pathetic!

well if hitler didnt kill them off.

of course you justify these killings right? so it would be ok someday to come to
germany and just uproot your people and throw your educated people into ovens
and act all uncivilized by making them experiments and gassing them right :)

you dont know why you hate polish people , your conditioned to hate them because of what?? your grandfather didnt get to gas someone and was taken away to jail?

or because your uncle forgot to cover his tracks for his part in the mass killings?

what bratworst boy? what is it that makes you hate so much? so you can come in
here and be all bad with your chest hairs sticking out? it makes me sick that you
would feel that way when are you going to dunk yourself into the human tank ?

Oh Pat...how long will you use Hitler as apology for continually underachieve?
It seems always someone else to be who opresses the poor Poles...if it is not Germany then it's Russia or both...

Poor victimized Poles!

(And yes Grandpa and Granduncles marched through Poland...two times! LOL)
