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

What with the painfully embarrassing Volkswagen scandal, "deutsche Qualitaet", except perhaps still in the food or handicrafts area, has certainly received a big black eye!! If they ever do recover from it, (which after all they may not) there'll still be plenty of visible scars:-)

The Polonis is starting to sound better by the minute. At least the Polish auto industry never touted itself as the bestLOL

Typical, completely messed up, western view: "they hate us because they are jealous of our rich lifestyle". No! We don't like Germans because they have been murdering us and stealing from us since the beginning of time and because they are stiff, fake (smiling for show everywhere), rude, unfriendly, manipulative calculating, miserable, stingy creatures. This combination makes Germans off putting to us, unlike Russians who have been killing us also since the begging of time but they still our sister soul, we like Russians but not always their governments. Whereas with Germans the only positive bit of attitude that we uphold towards them steems from our respect and admiration for Germany's ability to utilise their resources to make great wealth out of it and to create products of highest quality and produce newer and newer useful inventions (e.g. in medicine). So, it is actually the opposite, we only respect Germans for their health not like you wrote for it to be our reason for disliking them, no. no.You totally misunderstood Polish people.

@Ktos,

Germans don't have a monoply on murder and plunder! The Russians, the Spanish, yes the Americans too, have done their fair share of profiteering, particularly from Third World countries, extracting riches from them, while impovrishing the locals by using them for cheap labor.

The Russians though, like the Poles, also suffered terribly at the hands of the Nazis. In suffering, there is unity:-)

that's a ******** talking. apart from partition (and, of course, last war) borders between Poland and Germany was a pretty stable one- especially when compared to the east borders of Commonwealth!

but they still our sister soul,

ah, that mysterious, always drunk "sister soul" of slavs..

we like Russians but not always their governments.

which was always eagerly supported by the "average Ivan". what's the Putin's support about the Ukraine situation? 85%? 90%?

It may sound as paradoxical but, judging by the mega trends and events that accelerate, Poles would need Russian support. Form of Russian respond to that situation may decide fate, not only of Poland but also of Russia and even entire Slavic world.

I have some family that had a hard time at the hands of the germans, and some at the hands of the ruskies.

i was told that if a polish soldier captured a russian soldier and a german soldier in war. which one does he shoot first?

German , then Russian, Business before Pleasure

^ hahah

IMO russians historically treat us worse but that's not saying much considering they treat their own horribly. Germans think they are smarter than us, Russians just think of us as smaller/weaker.

True, for many Germans from generations past, Poland was merely farm land, fodder for the German Reich, whose inhabitants were deemed expendable peasant field laborers, there but for the good graces of German nobility, to serve the German people, nothing more, nothing less.

Thankfully though, times have changed!

Europeans hating each other?! Euros giving each other reason to hate the other?! What a shocker!

I disowned my younger sister because of thanks to her, my young niece and nephew have a Nimtzi last name. And told a chick in our YA group we were done when I found out her last name is Russia. I can't believe I almost married a Russki!

I'm joking! Well, my niece and nephew are really part of German heritage.

As an American of primarily European descent, I do not hate Germans. Like most Europeans, through the centuries we gave our neighbors reason for the hate. And in typical Euro fashion, we love stereotypes!

Hatred is simply too strong word to describe feelings of the Polish towards both of those nations. We just dislike them purely for the history as we are an intelligent nation which learns from the past. Thats why freedom of speech is very strong in Poland and Political Corectness didn't spoil it like in the West.

There are some people who actually hate Germany and there are people who hate Russia (plenty of those on this forum and mostly foreigners) but those people are just sick of UE meddling with our internal affairs or brainwashed by the western propaganda to hate Russia.

Poles don't love USA either. We just consider USA a lesser evil.

Hatred is simply too strong word

We just dislike

Dangerous to say 'we', as if 38 million people all hold the same opinion. Some certainly do hate one country or another, some are ambivalent, some like (even love) one or other of those two cultures, some are simply not haters.

Forget that pleasure, dobri i plemeniti brate legione. Found love in your deep Polish heart. Germans we don`t need, Russians we need, believe me. So let us give them chance. After all, business moving eastward.
