Appeal to Chancellor Merkel : Polish organizations want to cancel the Nazi Regulation 1940
Berlin lawyer Stefan Hambura occurred yesterday under the authority of Polish organizations in Germany, Chancellor Angela Merkel of formal cancellation of the Nazi regulation of liquidation of the Polish minority in the Third Reich .
This document compiled on February 27, 1940 . Council of Ministers for the Defense of the Third Reich , and signed , among others, its chairman , Field Marshal Hermann Göring . Legislative Decree required that resolve any associations Polonia and confiscation of their property without any possibility of any claims for damages.
Basically, Poland demands that the 1940 law in Germany that ordered Polish minority organisations to be banned and the properties confiscated, be renounced. That's the western border. On the eastern border, Russia opens the archives to look at Polish politics during the war.
I kinda thought that we had already solved the minority agreements with Germany, during the time when Kwaśniewski was the President, or earlier. We have a border agreement, so I had thought it must have followed. But apparently not, and it's good that it's being done.
I really want to learn what is in the Russian archives, but I also want to learn what is in the British ones. The game was far bigger that poor little Poland, even though we like to see ourselves as the centre of the world. Maybe that can cast some light on what happened. Why Poland refused to attack Russia, even though 20 years before we had an open war? Why did Hitler like Piłsudski and give him an official funeral with honours? Why the Polish Military in Britain had not aided the Polish resistance in Poland? Why France suggested to Poland not to buy arms and call the conscription, and why was France obeyed?
I suppose that we will also learn more about the Soviet POW's who died of hunger in Poland. While this is most unfortunate, we weren't well provided for, too, and I hope that is remembered. But if they bring it up, we need to be very noble and gracious in order not to confirm what the Westerners say all the time, that it's we who are nation of angry peasant Anti-Semitism. And it WILL get used, so brace yourselves.
