julina 1 | - 30 Apr 2010 #1My family migrated to another continent from "Poland" (so they say). During their time they lived in italy and germany and my grandfather also had lived in poland. However, they do not resemble polish people at all. They have extremely olive skin, the blackest hair and the darkest eyes. The grandmother was born in ukraine whilst my grandfather was born in poland. Their names are not the slightest bit polish (maria, bruno, antonio etc). They do not speak about their past nor share any of the family history with us because they are too "suspicious". they suffered from the war badly and lost basically everything but their lifes.Growing up in the polish community, i always questioned their polish-ness due to we don't look anything like the other pol's.The last name is Krzywoszyja.Can anyone please explain this?! Why does the last name end in A and not ski? Why are we so dark? Could their be other heritage in their mix like turkish or middle eastern etc because thats how we look.Thanks.
