If he was plain Polish he would have said 'Hey, nothing to do with us, it was those Germans', while shaking a fist in whichever direction Germany lay.
This thread was started by a troll and is visited by some trolls, who insist that native Poles gave no contribution to world science, and if they did then they must have been of Jewish origin. Which is not entirely true. Now you are off topic, modafinil, with your comment here. So let me remind you that "others deported to Auschwitz included 150,000 Poles, 23,000 Roma and Sinti, 15,000 Soviet prisoners of war, some 400 Jehovah's Witnesses and tens of thousands of people of diverse nationalities." Or whatever, I just quoted wikipedia. Thus your comment was not called for.
My great uncle perished in Buchenwald, presumably of typhus(*). And he was only a young boy, just a Pole. My great grandmother miraculously survived five and half years of Ravensbruck. Luckily she was not selected as one of those "medical rabbits" for experiments with gangrene bacteria, etc. And she was only a Polish teacher. So I expect from you the same kind of respect as you expect it from me.
(*)The camp was also a site of large-scale trials for vaccines against epidemic typhus in 1942 and 1943. In all 729 inmates were used as test subjects, of whom 154 died.
So now back on topic, attempting to fight away standard trolls.Polish inventors
Stefan Drzewiecki (1844-1938): invented cab odometer, precise plotter of ship routes, worked on propeller-driven (1-4 men) submarines, invented precise method for manufacturing ship and plane propellers, developed theory of gliding.
Józef Stanisław Kosacki (1909–1990): Polish professor engineer, inventor, and an officer in the Polish Army during World War II. He is best known as the inventor of the Polish mine detector, the first man-portable mine detector, whose basic design has been in use with various armies for over 50 years.
Stefan Kudelski (1929-) is a Polish audio engineer, famous for creating the Nagra series of professional audio recorders. The company is still going fine.
Jan Józef Ignacy £ukasiewicz (1822–1882) was a Polish pharmacist and petroleum industry pioneer who in 1856 built the first oil refinery in the world. Among his other achievements were the discovery of how to distill kerosene from seep oil, the invention of the modern kerosene lamp (1853), the introduction of the first modern street lamp in Europe (1853), and the construction of the first oil well in Poland (1854).
Henryk Władysław Magnuski (1909 -1978) was a Polish telecommunications engineer who worked for Motorola in Chicago. He was the inventor of one of the first Walkie-Talkies and one of the authors of his company success in the fields of radio communication.
Kazimierz Prószyński (1875 - 1945). He patented his first film camera, called Pleograph, before the Lumière brothers, and later went on to improve the cinema projector for the Gaumont company, as well as invent the widely used hand-held Aeroscope camera, powered by compressed air. Hundreds of light and relatively compact Aeroscope cameras were used by British Army combat cameramen on the battlefields of World War I and later by newsreel cameramen until the late 1920s, when more modern spring cameras like Eyemo and later Bolex took over.
Zygmunt Puławski (1901 - 1931) was a Polish aircraft designer and pilot. He invented a gull-wing aircraft design, also known as "Puławski wing" and constructed a series of Polish PZL fighters
Michał Sędziwój (Michael Sendivogius, Sędzimir) (1566–1636) was a Polish alchemist, philosopher, and medical doctor. A pioneer of chemistry, he developed ways of purification and creation of various acids, metals and other chemical compounds. He discovered that air is not a single substance and contains a life-giving substance-later called oxygen -- 170 years before Scheele and Priestley. He correctly identified this 'food of life' with the gas (also oxygen) given off by heating nitre (saltpetre).
Jan Szczepanik (1872-1926) made over 50 discoveries, many of which are still used today, especially in the motion picture industry, photography, and television.
