communist system lasted 1945-1989.
some memorials were pulled down immediately after the system collpased, others remained and hold strong.

the memorial in uście gorlickie, to polish communist partisans, red army soldiers and all polish soldiers from lemko area. Written in polish and cyrillic.

i suppose if pis activists tried to pull it down as they planned in 2007, they would be lynched by locals.

It is norma in Czech Republic. Red army memorials are in many places. Peoples know very good what is reason behind this monuments. Simple Russian soldiers died, where was there fault they fight with deadly enemy like Nazis? Let they stay in there locations - who cares? it is history.

Obviously Szlachcic doesn't have anybody in Family who had the "plesure" of living through Soviet Ocupation of Eastern Poland during 1939-41. During only 2 years Soviets led by Jews managed to kill 1/3 of Ethic Poles war wictim.... Having only half of country to rule over. Anything good about Communism came after 1956 when Polish Communist with Nationalist bend like Gomulka (who was imprisoned by Stalin for being too Polish) took over and kicked out Jews from Party and State Security. Not to mention Anti Polish policy is pan German phenomen dating back to Tuetonic Order and Bismarck and mayority of victims could be averted if Poland had the brain to not ally itself with Decadent and Treacherous countries like UK and France. Just compare victims in Czech Republic, Slovakia and Croatia... all Slav countries which should be in theory be targeted by genocide as well... except they weren't former having brain to surrender latter being Axis allies of III Reich. Nobody is blaming Hungarians for this now... Heck nobody blames Soviet Union/Russia looks like Poland was again outjewed.

Both of my parents, as well as grandparents, had only positive things to say about it.

My mother especially loved learning Russian culture and language, and considered herself a Russian citizen second to being Polish.

As a small child, we travelled to and lived in Sankt Petersburg on and off in the 80s. :)

It's a real pity that Poles today don't learn Russian to the same extent as during RPL.

I'm sorry if your family didn't benefit from it.

Quite frankly, I could care less. :)

Oh wow, Jew using a "Szlachcic" (nobleman) nick. How quaint.
Now I get why it was "good times" for you.

I am no Jew.

My prababcia hails from a noble family of Wadwicz, from the Wilno region.

My father proudly has the herp displayed in his living room, and I have it tattooed on my chest.

thank you. :)

Was that the one in Nowa Huta? If so, it was a huge statue!

Led by Jews? I don't think so. Then again, it suits your nasty little racist theories, doesn't it?

Anything good about Communism came after 1956 when Polish Communist with Nationalist bend like Gomulka (who was imprisoned by Stalin for being too Polish) took over and kicked out Jews from Party and State Security.

Anyone with half a brain knows that the purge of Jews came in 1968. Gomulka was also imprisoned - not for being too Polish, but for deviating from Stalin's line.

Not to mention Anti Polish policy is pan German phenomen dating back to Tuetonic Order and Bismarck and mayority of victims could be averted if Poland had the brain to not ally itself with Decadent and Treacherous countries like UK and France.

I'm enjoying your use of random capitals. Did you actually go to school, or just pretend to?

looks like Poland was again outjewed.

What on earth is "outjewed", you nasty little person?

Yes, almost as huge as Feliks Dzierżyński monument in Warsaw which was also hanged in 1989:
