USA, Canada / Are there any Polish people in Florida? [303]

What? No polish stores in South Fla? Of course there are. And there's a pretty good polish population there too.
I've lived there for over a decade...there's one in North Lauderdale.

History / WWII - who really was the first to help Poland? [901]

dTaylor: What do you mean the US sold Poland to Russia? Could you explain that a little more?

michal_857: Maybe I didn't pay good enough attention? :o/ When they talk of WW2 I mostly heard about bombing Germany, and Pearl Harbor, etc.

ZIMMY: You say Churchill sold us?

Agh, I know no one is a history expert. But I don't even wanna bother reading up on this because you never get straight to the point. I wish there was a time line, like: "A happened, then B happened, which caused C to happen" etc.

Someone mentioned that the Red Army helped push Germans back. But I also heard that Russians killed a lot of Poles by doing so? I thought I read it somewhere in a post on here.

Sorry for all the questions, I'm sure its irritating to explain.

Marek, thanks for the advice. I'll check that book out.

History / WWII - who really was the first to help Poland? [901]

I'm really hoping this thread doesn't become an argument, and I wanna avoid that b/c i just wanna learn about this, but...about ww2 and Poland, who really was the first to help poland?

I've lived in the usa for 13 years, ever since i was 10 years old, so unfortunately I did not learn polish history, so only know from the schools here that mainly that USA's involvement in ww2 helped Poland. But then again from reading some posts on here, the Russians helped, but then someone replied that sure, they helped, right after killing a bunch of us...sooo, is this one of those answers that depends on who is telling it or is there really a straight answer as to who helped us? Is there a timeline of this?

It's really f*ing frustrating getting a straight answer. And it kinda pisses me off I dont know this. But, my family moved here when I was young so I only know so much. Its hard not to get a biased answer about issues of war and history.

So please I dont want this to turn into russian, american, whoever else bash-fest. I just want some sort of timeline, accurate facts as they happened, not what benefits a nation.

Life / What is the reason for POLISH jokes ? [486]

What's funny is that every nationality has a dumb joke about them. So it's just other people stereotyping others for some reason. Maybe it's because they just don't understand them.

It's annoying as hell but what can you do?
