The regime change in 1989 was essentially a trade-off: we forget about the past and you go quietly ... with your ill-gotten gains.
This is a lie!
Let sleeping dogs lie and get one with life thats what I say...anger breeds hatred and thats not the right direction for an up and coming country to go, but thats an outsiders view
What's more some European powers have little interest in clarifying any of the above for reasons that will be become known in the history books our grandchildren will read. I am afraid very few people in the west can begin to understand or comprehend what has happened. They should, however, consider their own history and decision making processes before lecturing Poles about how to treat former communist criminals. They should first explain the reasons behind the decisions taken after the second world war. The reasons behind " Yalta". The reasons behind the recognition of the illegal Polish government (put in place by Moscow) after the second war world.
The present-day population of Poland should be punished continually by politicians concentrating on the past.
How ... errr ... forward-thinking.
These are the very same individuals today that seek to confuse and disinform Polish society about who cooperated. They were also the same individuals who changed, created ,rewrote and destroyed numerous numbers of secret police files prior to the election of this government. Poles have the right to know who they were and how they cooperated. They also have the right to demand compensation from the guilty.
