The first transport reached Auschwitz on June 14, 1940. It consisted of 728 Poles and included soldiers who had fought against the German invasion in September 1939, members of underground independence organizations, secondary-school and university students, scouts, Catholic priests. . For the first almost 2 years of genocidal activity of the camp Poles were the largest group of the prisoners in Auschwitz!!!
Sadly the winners of the war rewrote the history so it was more palatable for the rest of he world.
On Sept 1st Germany attacked Poland from West, South and North. On Sept 17 Soviet Union attacked from the East. The countries partitioned the land according to the former Ribbentrop- Molotov agreement. Germans implemented their plan of total annihilation of Polish nation as Hitler commended :to kill "without pity or mercy, all men, women, and children of Polish descent or language."
"All Poles will disappear from the world.... It is essential that the great German people should consider it as its major task to destroy all Poles."
In the first 2 years of the war Poland lost:
45% of her doctors,
- 57% of her attorneys
- 40% of her professors,
- 30% of her technicians,
- more than 18% of her clergy
- most of her journalists.
Young Polish men were forcibly drafted into the German army.
- The Polish language was forbidden. Only the German language was allowed.
- All secondary schools and colleges were closed.
- The Polish press was liquidated. Libraries and bookshops were burned.
- Polish art and culture were destroyed.
- Polish churches and snyagogues were burned.
Obviously you have no idea what you are talking about and happily gobble up anything that ultra communistic left wing spits out. Some people live their entire lives in oblivion as facts, truth, historical accuracy is simply too much for their synapses to process.
3mln Poles killed by Germans, 200,000 children taken forcibly from their parents to be Germanized and never reunited with their families, min of 50,000 killed for helping Jews alone, 80% of leadership class massacred in the first 2 years of the war, 2mln of upper echelon in the Eastern Poland sent to gulags in cattle wagons - coordinated action by Soviets and Germans who carried 4 conferences on how best to eradicate a memory of a nation that once was. Libraries were burned, art collections, valuables, sculptures put in cargo trains that travelled incessantly for 6 years to the West. Antique carved door with door frames were pulled out from buildings, thoroughbred horses, even reach soil of what is now Ukraine was shipped to Germany. Massive, systematic looting of anything that could have even a smallest value. People from the Western part of Poland were ordered to abandon their homes and resettle wherever so new german masters could move in. This is how my family lost their 13 bedroom home and a lot of land. I am a living rightful heir.
After the war, communistic regime so enthusiastically embraced by Jews who made up 80% of the Stalinist administrative apparatus in Poland, enforced it's rule. All private property was repossessed. People were crammed into very small, ugly concrete appartment buildings. Our home became a school and is serving this purpose until now. We were given priority to buy only small part the land before anybody else just few years ago. My entire hard working upper class family cannot afford it as salaries were and still are so low compared to western countries. In 1945 cities with few exceptions were razed to the ground, a skeleton of a country that it once was. Whatever Soviets didn't take during their occupation (including dignity of 100,000 women many gang raped to death), the communistic regime made sure to despoil. Poland that suffered the biggest civil losses and destruction was prohibited by Stalin to participate in the Marshal Plan, financial assistance extended to the Western countries to rebuilt themselves. Poles were left to their own devices and were rebuilding their country with bare hands. My husband's family owned a home just outside of Lwow. 1/3 of what used to be Poland is now in Ukraine, Belarus, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia. How should Polish citizens seek their rights to restitution? Why Poland that didn't wage war against anybody, that was shafted by all the allied countries and sold to be devoured by a psychopath Stalin with his psychopath Jewish comrades : Jacob Berman, Wanda Wasilewska, Helena Wolinska-Brus, Stefan Michnik is suppose to pay nowadays value with interest and speculative rent for "occupying" real estate for the last 70 years. You are sick, greedy, inbred lot that never did anything for the country that provided shelter to you for over 1000 years when nobody wanted you.
The three very high level Jewish officers -- Minc, Berman, and Zambrowski -- in the post-war oppressive Communist institutions,
are responsible for the death of 500,000 Polish Home Army officers and opponents of the regime
"All three communist leaders who dominated Poland between 1948 and 1956, [Jacob] Berman, Boleslaw Bierut, and Hilary Minc, were Jews." [MACDONALD, 1998, p. 63] In 1976, ethnic Polish anti-Jewish sentiment was now "due to the Jews who occupy leading positions in Poland's government and endeavor to introduce a governmental structure that the majority of Poles do not wish to have."
Jewish historians Pawel Korzec and Jean-Charles Szurek also "admit [that] the Jewish youth and proletariat played an important ('although not exclusive') role in the apparatus of oppression."
