England's relations with Poland

All too often examples of how the Polish people and their illustrious history go overlooked or altogether neglected from any historical mentions, save, their being overrun by the Blitzkrieg in 1939. It's as if only mere mentions of how Poland suffered are allowed to be openly discussed, if at all, which is usually overshadowed by the suffering of others who were not Polish during WWII (thanks to Hitler, Stalin, Churchill and Roosevelt). 'Confined to Quarters' is a description used here, to illustrate where Polish history is usually kept when it is excluded from film and history books outside of Poland itself by others who seem to want to keep it that way.

Following, however, are examples from earlier Polish History with some selected excerpts from Arthur L. Waldo's book 'Jamestown True Heroes', of, in this case, (also overlooked or ignored), how England relied heavily upon Poland and/ or the well-known relationship between the two countries historically, which continually goes unacknowledged and undocumented in 'modern' 'period' films and historical accounts. Complaining about this ongoing occurrence usually tends to fall on deaf ears outside of the Polish demographic in general. So, here is one small attempt to bring such rarely-known history to the eyes and ears of the curious and/or unknowing non-Polish society in hopes to better educate those who weren't familiar with this information

Enjoy!!!

Seems like the Poles and the Brits shares a common history.

So do all countries, it's nothing remarkable.

Ok then tell me. What does Estonia and Tanzania have in common "Historically".

Let's not change the topic. Thank you.

Anyway does the english/polish school teach you anything about the historical connections between Poland and England?

And has anyone been at the Poland Street in London? Is it nice?

it's nothing special, just a typical central London sidestreet really - full of offices and crazy motorcycle couriers trying to kill everyone, lol.

Berwick & Wardour Streets are nearby, which are far better.

I used to go to the Yo! Sushi along there, though. And Black Market Records nearby, of course :)

Well that has to be some new building right?

Greek Street is just off Old Compton Street - I'm sure a few people on here would say that's the perfect place for Southern, haha ;)

David, David....are your history studies that devoid of recognizing remarkable demonstrations of political relations?!

I'm speaking to David18, I believe in reference to his passionless and ignorant refusal to acknowledge the Dialogue between Queen Elizabeth and the Polish Ambassador .

Sorry David all of my comments were meant for Matowy!
