Kajtus Czarodziej is really depressing

Plot
The book depicts a schoolboy who gains magic powers. At first, Kajtuś acts as a selfish child, using his power for mischief. Eventually, he becomes dissatisfied with himself, and leaves his home town, where he acquires a reputation as a troublemaker.[2] On his travels, he meets Zosia, a girl who uses her magical power for good.[2] Together, they fight an evil wizard, and Kaytek chooses the path of a good mage.[2] The book contains some gaps, including one of the chapters, which were sections that were crossed out because they were too frightening to children.


Reminds me of Harry Potter.

Shortly speaking, ultra nationalist parties in Poland which openly declare their antiJewish animosity get less than 1% votes in various elections.

While other parties and their leaders, including Presidents of Poland, keep up good Jewish Polish relations:

Right

Poland president

Centre

Left

Kwasniewski Poland

Didn't Lech Kaczynski actually have excellent relations with Jewish people and Israel?

Yes, he always attended Jewish holidays and ceremonies, there are plenty of photos available. Lech was a much better man than his younger brother, Jarosław. Maybe naive and too easily influenced, but much more decent.

Polish people ARE antisemitic - every day I read at last one comment about "the Order of Syjon" and "jewish conspiracy against Poland". Also, in this country "jewish man" ("Żyd") is a synonim of greedy person ("Oh, nie bądź żydem, pożycz mi pieniądze").

Merged: Why are Polish people so antisemitic?

As a fellow Pole, I am embarrassed at the antisemitism that some Poles exhibit. That includes my parents who will not go a week without saying something nasty about the Jews. You should've seen how angry they were when I dated a Jewish guy.

There's no doubt antisemitism is prevalent in Polish society. Where does it stem from though?

For one thing, they blame most political/economic problems on Jews.

Jews are just the same as as, just because I dislike a pole doesnt not mean that i am a Polonophobe, persoonally i think that jews use the terrible events of the Shoah to victimise themselves, it's a smokescreen behind what mossa and the Israeli army is doing in Palestine daily.

Poles are not antisemitic, we defended jews in the war, saved a lot of them as well, shame that Jews forgot about it...
I believe that we are all equal in the eyes of God, (I know that a lot of Jews wouldnt agree with me, (Oh I am such a silly Goiyem ;) ), because I believe, mor or less in the equality, I'd like to see a movie about the bad side of Jews, in the 2 WW and afterwards in the soviet-occupied Poland... ever heard of the Jewish gestapo, unit 13 of the Warsaw ghetto? or the Jewish bandits that went together with the soviets in 1945?

I bet not, thus, please leave Poles alone, we have forgiven nearly everything that had been done against us, we helped you a lot, we even gave your people a free choice of joining up to the Israeli armed forces in 1943/4 when the Anders Army was stationing there.

I want to say the creator of this thread has a very silly mindset considering the examples he listed.

Naming things after Jews is something the majority of Poles had no saying in. That in no way proves that antisemitism is not a problem in Poland.

Unfortunately, the truth of the matter is that antisemitism is quite common among Poles. I live in the UK and I'm a Polish Gentile woman. When I was dating a Jewish man, many people back home were not too happy about that. :-\
