Whom do the people in Poland hate more: Germans or Russians?

Actually, I know this is a weird question, as nobody is supposed to hate anybody as we've seen to what hatred can lead. But nevertheless, as I have quite a few Poles here and I hear them regularly talk about how they hate the Germans or how they hate the Russians while they're right in between the both of them and both of them has done harm to Poland.

Therefore, my question is: whom do the Poles hate more, the Germans or the Russians?

Thanks!

How can poles hate the germans, it is the 21st century and germany along with britain are the two largest eu contributers which pump money from their taxpayers into poland as well as increasing foreign investment in poland. When you see new buildings being built. And more initiatives for the polish people, That comes from the german taxpayers pocket.

Hm, make that Germany, Sweden and the Netherlands - the biggest contributors of the EU anyway. But I was just wondering as I hear it said so many times...The Dutch don't really like the Germans, although it's getting better as time passes by. Actually it's funny: we had more wars with the British than with any country else, got more times occupied by the French and we still dislike the Germans above those two ppl. It's just a matter of time as I feel that ressentiments will die with the ppl who actually lived in the area of the atrocities.

M-G (at least, that's my theory)

trolling again or being serious?

I sincerely hope you're trolling around, because if you think you can buy someone so easily, you really need a reality check.

Difficult to decide. Both aren't too popular still in Poland, but times are changing. If I would have to guess, I'd say that Krauts are still more disliked. There is at least a Slavic tie with Russians, even though that really doesn't mean anything.

Noimmigration is right to a point, Poland was given money out of the coffers of the EU, rather generously I may add, and it was meant specifically for road improvement. It was spent (sqandered?) on sth else. This was in 2005 or 2006. Any Pole will tell u that roads are in dire need of repair. This is unacceptable

this is an article dated 3 years ago describing polands plea for eu cash (predominantely britiah and german cash) to rebuild their infrastructure. If poles are anti german then they have a cheek to accept their money EU crisis talks shift to Poland.

This is a good point again. This was the danger many countries saw b4 the expansion of the EU. Goodwill is extended too far sometimes. The EU is not a charity

Provocation, it creates some fun. Germany and Britain are generous providers, of that there is no question.

I've seen newspapers in Poland with articles on Polish-German relations and they don't seem too good.

Germany are in Poland's Euro group so that will trigger further conflict. Germany has also been open in inviting Polish people to work, they are not cruel towards the Poles

Definately Gerries. Many people don't realize that but Russians actually use to do things like treathing us with nukes (more or less directly) and we only don't like them. If Gerries did that any German speaking person coming here would risk own life. We just don't like Russians the way you don't like a nasty kid leaving crap in the corner. With Gerries that's much more serious. Sooner or later the time will come and we will get them.

Polish hatred to Germans:
some basic info:
killed millions of Poles (mostly civilians), destroyed and stole as much of the country as they were able to. I guess everyone knows that and it's an old story, I can hear the replies: "get over it", these were fathers/grandfathers of the current Germans, so they can't be responsable" etc.

I agree, but I can't overlook the imminent consequences of that 1939 assault:
It CHANGED our 20th century history, indirectly throwing us in the arms of the post-war Soviet Union, thus indirectly deprived us of 50 years of free market economy (not to mention citizen rights, like freedom of speech etc. or other non measurable consequences).

So the EU gave us millions or billions of Euro, to build a highway or two, and you think it's ok?
Without that war, with normal economic growth (no communism), Poland would have those highways built by now with its own money, like all western European countries did.

So yeah, I don't blame today's Germans for the war, I don't hate Germany or its people, and I'm, to a certain degree, thankful for the "alms" we receive, but asking me to love the country that had caused my country to be in a beggar's shoes is a little overboard.

*snif*

*wail*


Wait...why don't you direct your hate to the Brit's, the French and the US???
Germany was never Polands friend...we never broke a treaty or a promise to you...quite to the contrary to your "friends"....
And anyway...there is more than just the past.
In a recent Poll they asked the Germans whom of their neighbours they liked most...now guess where Poland ended...yup...way down at the bottom!

It's more a dog/cat case here...just to different...if it weren't the war then it would be something else!

C'est la vie! :)

Wrong.
Germany unilaterally broke the German-Polish Non-Aggression Pact, signed for a period of 10 years in 1934.

In a recent Poll they asked the Germans whom of their neighbours they liked most...now guess where Poland ended...yup...way down at the bottom!

I would be shocked if the results of the poll were different. After all, 1000 years of hatred won't be changed within just a few decades.

Umm...that was Hitler...wasn't it?
Well then we weren't that good with treaties...just ask the Russians...
What rather supports my point!

You surely won't compare a Hitler treaty with a GB treaty or a French treaty to come immediately to your help, won't you?

Not to mention that the US troops made it barely to the Elbe...totally disinterested in the fate of you Poles! Hugging Uncle Joe instead...

But still...you love them!

now you're talking.. one needs to start with the krauts trying to convert us to Christianity, the tutons and so on and on and on .. and on...

What was so bad with this one? You are the most fervent Christians now in Europe!
Imagine...no polish pope..without us "tutons"...:)

Teutonic knights were not in it to convert Polish pagans, rather to take the land and enslave the people, like Germany has been doing throughout history. If I had lived back then, I would have liked to kill some of these cowards who rode under Christs banner.

Bratwurst, I hope to God that there will be a continued animosity of Germans toward Poles, for if there ever comes a need for war, I would not even hesitate a moment. . .

dude, no Polish pope without our brothers the Czechs, eh?

a treaty is a treaty, no? Brits, French did break theirs too but at least they didn't try to kill us all like you folks did. besides, wasn't Hitler an Austrian, you bumba$ses? haha you all got snookered by a foreigner too.

these here are some exact reasons why one can't trust a kraut, ever.

And?

Who's got a problem with that?

Hehe...reminds me about the polish loudmouths before '39..."In one week in Berlin!"
Polish overestimation...like always!

:)

I would have thought a betrayal by a friend is much worse...
But then...nobody respects a honest enemy anymore...*shakes head sadly*

PS: Hitler was German born in Austria....these borders...always changing...but then you as a Pole know about that, don't you?

Never! You can mark my words Bratwurst, never again will be overestimate your German nature, of cruelty and coldness. If push comes to shove, we will see each other, no? Take care my German friend..

And on, and on, and on, and on....*yawn*
