You mean if Jews would like to claim Lodz as their land, you would say eh take it.
No. What I'm saying is that throughout its entire history, the inhabitants of Lvov and surrounding areas have been both Polish and Ukrainian. While it would be nice if it were a part of Poland or, at worst, a border city, that's not the way things have worked out.
I am prepared to accept the status quo because:
1) Ukrainians have historically been a part of Lvov too
2) Reclaiming the city would be hugely impractical
3) It has become the capital of Ukrainian culture, more so than Kiev, which is mostly Russian speaking.
4) Whereas reclaiming the city would be of modest benefit to Poland, it would be hugely destructive to Ukrainian language and culture.
I sympathise with Ukrainians, who have suffered Russian oppression for most of the last century, and while I recognise the legitimacy of Poland's claims to Lvov, I accept the status quo because executing that claim would be hugely oppressive and destructive to the Ukrainians, and I wouldn't want Poland to be the oppressor.
Pardon for my ignorance,but which exacly cultural acheivements happened in Polish Lwow?Which thinkers or scientists originated there?Is it famous for scientific discoveries?
The Panorama Racławicka of Jan Styka and Wojciech Kossak is a Polish masterpiece, originally created in Lvov. In 1980, it was moved to Wrocław, where it is now one of the main tourist attractions.
