Try losing 35% of population (35 million in 1939 and 23 million in 1945), 76,000 sq. kilometres of territory (more or less the size of entire Czech Republic) including two out of four most important cities in the country's history, having your capital razed to the ground, your industry, infrastructure and national wealth destroyed and getting under Soviet occupation for 45 years and we'll see if you won't whine about it!
We all know what happened to the Poles. Nobody has denied it so far. Unlike with the Jews, by the way, as there are plenty of sick ghosts that deny that Jews were ever killed. Anyway, Jews lost about 50 per cent of their ppl and unlike the Poles, this was an attempt to wipe out an entire ppl. "Generalplan Ost for the Slavic Subhumans" was projected to leave at least 4.8 Mln ppl alive, albeit as slaves. And besides, it was nowhere clear that these plans would actually be carried out. By 1952 a lot of things could've happened. For the Jews there was no such plan, they simply had to be killed. All of them. No plan to keep part of them as slaves. Simply wipe them off the face of the Earth. So in that respect, yes, Jews had it worse than the Poles as also, like I said before (and vetala said so as well), Poles had a way of preventing being killed and that was not to interfere in any way with the Jews. At least they had an escape route. For Jews there was no such thing.
That's exactly what we do... most of the time.
lol, just check out the many threads on the topic on this forum. Now, I'm not saying that this here is representative for the entire Polish population and I firmly believe that the vast majority of the Poles are good and decent ppl, but if this forum is to be representative, one would fear the worst. But I know this forum consist for a big part of keyboard warriors who wouldn't dare say the things they say here in the outside world.
having your capital razed to the ground
Well, other cities have been bombed too. Rotterdam, for example, you know, in that "anti semitic" and "pro-Nazi" country, NL.
I'm not that sure. Oh, well - luckily we never found out what would have beenthe next
nazi step, after exterminating Jews.
Right, it's pure speculation. While the Jewish extermination was not.
M-G (next time I will spank you, Torq!)
