History / Famous Russian Poles [225]

The Russian modernist composer Igor Stravinsky was the son of a Polish singer whose surname was Strawincy.
Regarding Gogol, regardless of his mother's ancestory, he was anti-Polish. His novella "Taras Bulba" is full of invective towards Poles. I.E. The beauty of Polish women seduces righteous Russians and turns them against their people. This is a Ruthenian parallel to the Prussian HAKATists who insisted that it was the Polish woman, angry about the loss of her political influence, who kept the flame of Polish nationalism alive through the years of partition.

History / Poland and Muslims (Tatars and others). [81]

The Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth was not an Islamophobic place. There were Muslim members of the gentry. Islamophobia is un-Polish. The initiator of this thread should stay in Norway. I suspect he fears Muslim food vendors "sperm filled sauces" because he already has too much sperm in his diet.

History / Polish hatred towards Jews... [1290]

Both Palestine and Poland were partioned by foriegners, niether people gave up fighing for their freedom. The Poles got their independance after over one-hundred years of struggle, and the Palestinians have continued to struggle for the last 62 years, and they shan't quit either.

The Ashkenazim who founded the Zionist entity are descended from the Turkic Khazars. Palestine is not their ancestral homeland. It is the West's ignorance of Eastern European history that has allowed the myth of the "diaspora" to justify the brutal ethnic cleansing and land theft of Palestine.

The Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth provides an example for how this conflict may be resolved. Its citizens were of various ethnicities, and various religions. A multi-ethnic state with equal rights for all is the answer. A "Jewish" state which rules an area wherein half the people aren't Jewish is wrong.

Genealogy / THE MEANING AND RESEARCH OF MY POLISH LAST NAME, SURNAME? [4500]

Thanks again Polonious. Gombrowicz's name probably derives from the Lithuanian area of Gembres, because, although he was born in central Poland, his ancestors had been nobles in Lithuania.

Genealogy / THE MEANING AND RESEARCH OF MY POLISH LAST NAME, SURNAME? [4500]

Thank you Polonious for the information, although it's disconcerting to learn that one's surname means death-blow.
You wrote that Taraszkiewicz means son of Taras. Regarding the Polish writers Sienkiewicz and Gombrowicz, what are the first names that these surnames contain?

Genealogy / THE MEANING AND RESEARCH OF MY POLISH LAST NAME, SURNAME? [4500]

Hello, I'd like to know the meanings of the following Polish names:

Dobija and Pryzbilka, both from the Carpathians South of Cracow, the former is a word in Serbo-Croatian, might they be Bielocroat? or perhaps Gorale?

What do Taraszkiewicz and Pieczkowski mean? Both are from the part of Poland formerly ruled by Russia.

What do Paczkowski, Waszewski, and Schilkouski mean? These names are from what was Prussian ruled Poland. Are any of them identifiable as from one of the West Slavonic groups such as the Kashubes, the Wendish, etc.?
