The first version of this scout campfire song read: Cause all scouts are one family. Later, scouts changed into Poles. And in 1990s a disco polo group adapted it.

Nikola Tesla about Poles



In an interview to one of the best-known literary and art magazines of the period, "The Century Magazine" in 1894, Nikola Tesla, among other things, said:

Quote >

``Europe can never pay off a large debt owed to Serbs by heavy casualties, which they have succumbed to fighting barbaric intrusion. The Poles under Vienna completed what the Serbs could not do, and almost the same as these were rewarded for their services to civilization.``

The conclusion of an article on Polish politics by a foreign analyst:

At a time when the war in Ukraine has shifted the EU's center of gravity to the East, Poland's return to the European mainstream is of fundamental importance. Improving Polish-German relations today is as important for the future of the EU as the rapprochement between France and Germany in the 1950s. A self-confident and pro-European Poland may prove to be a key force in rebuilding the EU.

But Poland is Poland, we should be ready for any surprises.

It is funny and sad at the same time. Other Europeans still consider us unpredictable. We are like Russians to them.
Thank you, PiS. You have been fekking up the image of Poland for 8 years. I will never forgive you that, you PiS whorres.

"We have a saying: If I have to go into the jungle, it's best to have a Pole as my companion. You are faithful, you stick together until the end. The older generation of Englishmen will also testify to what great soldiers you are."

Norman Davies, historian, in an interview in 2006.
