Wow, I almost forgot that thread exists. It used to be our fav thread in the past.
So, I quickly looked through it and can tell you we have discussed the following Jewish contributors to Polish heritage:
writers, poets and linguists such as:
Film directors (Agnieszka Holland), sportspeople (Irena Szewińska), politicians (Geremek).
We have also talked about Jewish culinary contribution: challach, carp ala Jewish, cebularz - onion pie.
Now, it is time for new concepts.
A very important one - I wonder why nobody mentioned it before. Did you know that 6-7% Polish officers executed in Katyń Massacre was if Jewish origin? They were doctors, lawyers, engineers, merchants, teachers. They felt Polish and loved Poland and didn`t renounce it during interrogations by Soviet NKVD. In result, they were marked for extermination.
In central Warsaw, among modern architecture, there is a monument honouring the victims of Soviet invasion of 17 September 1939 and to all who perished in the East. The form is of a train carriage - in such carriages people were transported to Siberia to gulag camps.
The monument contains symbols of Catholic, Jewish, Muslim and Orthodox religions - all of them became objects of persecution when the USSR attacked Poland.
