Study / Rumor about racism - will I be fine in Poland as a black International student from Africa? [241]

Sean this is the second or third time you have warned Africans off regarding the risks of blacks being hospitalised in the UK is this your contribution to immigration control. As regards the guy who started the thread he's just a wind up merchant if he has been going out with Turkish and Greek woman and has not been warned off that Island has changed since I was there. But maybe that's why he wants to leave, if you go to Poland play it safe stick to the students union forget the clubs and local birds.

History / If i could write European history i would unite Europe under Polish language [67]

i would write European history and you then spread Polish language ;)

You don't have to bother Crow there is already an international language in existence it is called Esperanto invented by Dr Ludovic Lazarus Zamenhof from Bialystok. So the problem is solved until you can convince everyone to learn Esperanto we will carry on with English.

PS your home town looked great on the photo thread.

News / 2010 Year of Chopin (and his Dark Hallucinations) [13]

I loved to listen to Jan Paderewski play Chopin with friend who came from Poland we had some of the old 300mm records and would listen in the evening when we were relaxing with a glass of brandy. It transported her back home in her mind to Poland she always said Chopin was the soul of Poland.

History / Poles and (Polish) Jews... Victims of war... and beyond [301]

The German public outcry was against the euthanizing Germans not Jews.

Why didn't he do it in Poland, France, Holland then? German public opinion again? :) We are talking prior to 1942.

I don't think it would have mattered where the disabled were murdered the outcry would have been from the parents relatives and friends of the victims. The Jews were a different

situation they were removed en block so there was no one left to complain or even bother.

[ the idea at first was simply shoot them, but when they tried that, it became too expensive[/quote]

When they began shooting the Jews they dug massive pits lined the victims up and machine gunned them. The people doing the killing started to suffer from stress related illness's. I have seen documentaries were Himmler attended and he was even discussed it was at that point when they decided to find another method of disposal.

Any normal person who has been in a war and has had to kill people as I have will understand how there would be a massive stress factor killing defenceless people. When we were in action we were firing at targets who had guns in their hands trying to kill us. They cease to become targets and become people after the action when you go out to clear up the area and get the body count.

As regards the AK not helping the ZZ the Jewish underground I don't believe this the AK helped to arm them. After the fall of the Warsaw ghetto the ZZ operated in a much wider sector. I knew a Polish couple who were in the AK most of their work was sabotage not taking the Germans on in battle which would have been suicide. I have also spoken to Polish Jews who were helped to escape by the AK I even worked with one who told me all about it. I am not saying what I'm writing was everyone's experience its the experiences of the people I knew who were there.

History / Poles and (Polish) Jews... Victims of war... and beyond [301]

So, I wouldn't per sé say that all Western countries were anti-semitic as it were only certain groups and it wasn't sth that was layered through society as a whole in none of the Western countries.

I used the word antisemitic wrongly in the context of the general Irish and British people it was more of a perception of what they thought a Jewish person was. On the same basis as someone might make a remark a Thick Paddy or a Tight Scotsman a generalisation and that was the level of it.

Has any historian ever worked out why the Nazi's moved so early in the war on the final solution. Just to write that sentence sends a shiver through me of course the men who made these decisions did not have to carry to carry out their dirty work. It is a question that has always puzzled me the Germans being such a methodical race and all the Germans I have known have been nice caring intelligent people.

History / Poles and (Polish) Jews... Victims of war... and beyond [301]

The movie "Sophie's Choice" is a classical Anti-Polish movie meant to elicit hatred of Polish people by the people watching it. Especially among Jewish viewers.

"Sophie's Choice" was written by William Styron an American protestant the film was not as good as the book but stuck pretty close to it.

Poles had plans to exterminate the Jews before Hitler, some secret document existing to prove this extreme lie. Definitely Oscar material.

In 1937 the Polish government showed interest in the Nazi Madagascar plan but never had any plans to exterminate the Jews. The invasion in 1939 brought the Polish Catholics and the Polish Jews closer then they had ever been.

All countries in the West were antisemitic at that time to some degree other groups were consumed with hate. Like the Blackshirts in Britain who were attacking the Jews in the poor areas were they lived but the Jews fought back and beat them off the streets.

Tell us something we dont know..still descrimatated in the 21st century! Bloody muslims get better treatment!

There is 5.5 million British Catholics in the UK discriminated because they are catholics I find this unbelievable in a country that has passed so many anti-race laws and will discriminate against its own Catholic subjects. Not that I give a feck about the Catholics I gave up being one a long time ago I just hate the injustice. As regards Gordo he was the greatest disaster since the Zeppelin its a pity he didn't fukc off two and a half years ago.

History / Poles and (Polish) Jews... Victims of war... and beyond [301]

Poland was the only
country where helping a Jew was a crime punishable by death. Yet the number
of people, that have been recognized as rescuers by Yad Vashem in Israel is
the highest in the world?

I heard the punishment for helping a Jew in Poland was the immediate execution of your whole family. The number of people recognized in the yad Vashem who helped the Jews is 5742. It would take an extraordinary type of person to risk their families life for a stranger maybe if it was just my own life I don't know?

Life / What's wrong with you, Polish people - is it an inferiority complex? [123]

I would like to submit my opinion for what it is worth that you will judge for yourselves. I was born in Ireland and have lived in England for over fifty years any knowledge I have of Poland was through my friends who were Free Poles.I can remember them sending parcels back to their relatives in Poland like medicine and other things which were scarce back home.

When reading this thread I go to thinking what my view of Poland was in the early sixties and to me it felt like they were in Prison. The whole soviet block was in prison the ones who were born into it knew no better. But the Poles and others did because their incarceration had been resent and they knew what it was like to be free.

When prisoners are released from a long term gaol sentence it takes time to readjust Poland is going through this now. It will come through it and be all the stronger for it you young Poles are the future of Poland remember the past but focus more on the future.

Life / COMBATING "POLACK" JOKES [460]

What is Even More Amazing is that the Jewish Media Outlets promoted NAZI Polish Jokes

The same jokes you hear about the Poles the Brits were telling about the Irish for hundreds of years. And in Australia when I was there they were telling the most vile jokes about the Poms and Italians. The Nazi's told jokes about the Jews and the Poles, and before the Nazi's Germans told jokes about the Bavarians and still do. I bet the Romans told jokes about Greeks I have an English joke book two hundred years old and there is Irish jokes in it. But there is a positive side to this, if they are laughing at you they are not watching you. And you will have taken all their money and their women before they have stopped laughing.

Genealogy / Jewish Roots of Poland [639]

May I ask you where exactly Toners is? As soon as I am up and going again, I would love to visit that pub, just to see

M-G I think that was Vernon Avenue I lived on St Lawrence's Avenue right at the top on the left hand side. It was a great place for a kid to grow up, St Ann's estate was our playground and Dollymount beach for swimming and hunting rabbits. Our local pub when we were old enough was the The Yacht which served a great pint of Guinness. Toners is in Baggot Street it has not changed since the 1920's, I'm sure you will like it and the food's not bad. Take care I'm glad you are feeling better.

Genealogy / Jewish Roots of Poland [639]

You're certain you have no plans in the nearby future to come visit Dublin? How long haven't you been in the Dirty Auld Town? :)

I was over there three years ago, and I was not very impressed with the centre of the city and the spike in the middle of O'Connell Street. So we drove outside Dublin during the day, and spent our evenings around Clontarf were I grew up. The time prior to that was 1982 which was a much better Dublin then the one I found in 2007.

The Irish, always known for their welcoming character have adopted a form of racism that is kinda unnatural to them.

That was something I was more aware of the next year, when I went with my brother and not my wife. We went on a trip down memory lane visiting all our old favourite watering holes, the only one of the few that retained its character was Toners. The only change was old Mr Toner was long gone but they still did a great pint of the black stuff. And we did find the younger men were more racist then the woman as it is in London. Its sad really spending all that energy on hate instead of getting on with their lives and moving forward. My brother was mentioning the other day that we are due another visit to Dublin, we were thinking around Autumn it would be really nice to meet you and have a few in The Bailey. I hope you are feeling a bit better, and make a complete recovery soon.

Genealogy / Jewish Roots of Poland [639]

I have to correct you on the history. The word "Ashkenazi" in classical Hebrew simply means "German".

For years I have always believed the name Ashkenazi was farmer, but I had also heard them referred to by other Jews as German Jews so I stand corrected.

Most of the Polish Jews I met were Hasidic Jews either Polish or Polish descent very nice people when you got past the unfamiliar way they dressed. I remember one guy I got to know and liked, I asked him why they only employed each other. He said because of their religous observances no Christian employer would put up with it so they employed each other. The reason I asked him this question was because some of the guys were saying "bloody Jews they all stick together" they only employ each other. Low level anti-semitism the type of crap one used to hear every day without an ounce of thought behind it. Like a statement I read on this tread of someone who visited a mans home who happened to be Jewish and had paintings on his on his walls. And his statement was "Whats this with the Jews and paintings" well a bit of news for you mate lots of people buy paintings. I'm an Irishman and I have paintings hanging on my walls, some thing that gives me and others pleasure.

UK, Ireland / Let's discuss Polish and British, only constructive (though we will digress) [60]

Like i just pointed out they are more educated than the natives.

I take offence at the way you generalise about British people I have three children all highly educated girls. My eldest daughter is a consultant at a large teaching hospital in London my second daughter is a partner in a very large IT company and my youngest is doing her Masters

all educated in England. Most of their friends are English as they are and all in similar positions my daughters were fortunate that I had money but a lot of their friends came from less fortunate homes. For example my eldest daughters boss who is the senior consultant at the hospital his father was a porter. I would suggest you be more careful what you post you might upset more people then me with your silly generalisations.

History / Should visitors to Auschwitz pay an entrance fee? [82]

Culloden was a disaster for the Highlanders of Scotland. Thousands were massacred and ethnicaly cleansed as a result of the actions of the British Government troops and a way of life destroyed forever.

Back in the early eighties I was working in the Highlands and I visited Cullodon many times I'm sure you will know what mean when I say it had a quite and strange atmosphere. I knew what had happened at Cullodon, but I had to go there to feel what had happened. The survivors of the battle were sold into slavery a fact which came to light a few years ago.

When I went to Cullodon there was no enterance fee or no car park charge just a little shop that sold post cards and books.

History / The Polish Blame Culture! [330]

in the same kind as why did Hitler let the Brit army go away at Dunkirk...it's puzzling.

This also puzzled me why he stopped his advance for three days he had the men on the ground to completely destroy or capture the retreating troops. He then made a speech in the Reichstag on the 19th of July 1940 offering peace to Britain. I heard he had contact with the Duke of Windsor and other members of the British ruling class. The FBI had a file on the Duchess of Windsor and accused her of being a spy it came to light fifty years later. If anyone has a copy of that speech I would love to see it.

News / RUSSIA TO MAKE PUBLIC THE KATYN FILES... [274]

It takes two to tango. :) Seriously it's the same the other way around. How many of you guys ever been to Russia to perfectly know how things here are?
Most of my friends are used to read both Russian and Western press to compose the final opinion.

Sasha I worked with Russian engineers in London in 1977, we were working on the design and fabrication of two Methanol Plants for Siberia. I have always found that people have more in common when we get to know each other. Only one of the Russian spoke English, and one of our engineers spoke Russian. We went drinking together every Friday night, and had a great time. We also had Russian interpreters about six and a great looking girl from Moscow. One of the interpreters was Fergus Maclean his father was Donand MacLean, the British defector Fergus looked and sounded like Prince Charles?. I went to Moscow and Leningrad in 1982 we had a great time, the Hermitage was amazing.

Correct me if I'm wrong I read that Hitler held referendums regarding his handling of Germany's affairs, and each time had a 98% yes vote from the public. During the war in Britain Stalin and the Red Army were hailed as the saviours of the free world. After the war they were the devils incarnate ready to conquer and enslave the West. whose interests are we serving.

Russians in Afghanistan were the same like Americans in Vietnam,

I wish you guys would stop believing everything you read in your respective newspapers, I was in Vietnam. The crap I have read in books, and what was reported by the Magazines and newspapers at the time was fantasy. I served with the Australian Army in the Phuoc Tuy Province, we also served with the Yanks during the Tet Offencive. I never saw any women raped, there was no need the bars were full of girls. We had rules of engagement if we went outside them or anyone in your section, he would get his head kicked in. As regards KatyƄ Stalin was a vicious count, with everyone around him scared for their lives. Maybe Jed can tell me if this is true Stalin was dead twenty four hours because his aides could pluck up enough courage to knock at his bedroom door. (most likely a lie)

News / Changing Face in Poland: Skinnhead Puts on a Skullcap [90]

The UNO gave that piece of land to a folk whose ancestors had lived there 2000 years ago, and for many centuries. The Jews did something with that land. Arabs lived there for some centuries and never cared much for it. That land belongs to the one that values it.

Miguel that is not a very good argument to justify the Jewish procession of Israel, I am sure you are aware America and the UK had a very strong influence in procuring acceptance by the UN. Did you know that around the time of the First World War,Britain offered Uganda as a Jewish homeland and it was rejected. Israel has been in a state of war for nearly seventy years, I dread to think what the future hold for all of us all. And what it must be doing to the people of Israel and Palestine.

History / The Polish Blame Culture! [330]

You reaaaaally need to learn your history before posting bullsh*t.

Its not my history I'm an Irishman, I was stating what my polish mates said to me back in 1960. If you know better then them who actually fought in the war, well good on you but I would rather take their opinion and not read about it.. You are a bully if you spoke to me like that across a table you would account for it one way or the other. You seem to get all your information second hand. I was a soldier in Vietnam in 1968 with the Australians during the Tet not called up I volunteered. And did two tours I have never read any accounts or book that came anywhere near the truth about Vietnam. Except an odd one from guys who had been there, and had the ability to write a book, The Poles I knew were from the 2nd Carpathian Rifle Brigade, They never spoke much about the war until I came back to London from Vietnam. Because they knew I would then understand what the hill at Monte Cassino had cost them and the betrayal they felt. I don't know anything about you, maybe you have been in action but from your posts I don't get the feeling you have.The last of my mates died in the early nineties his name was Stephan he was my good friend. We met once a week for a drink up to the time he died. At his funeral his coffin was covered by the Polish flag, I still miss him, he and my other Polish friends are the reason I logged into this site.

PS. Yes you are right the Yanks did not care about Poland I thought I was making that point.
Regarding the Jews it was a Zionist family which happened to be Jewish, not the Jews who
financed the two wars, the same family who have owned the bank of England for nearly
two hundred years. And also own the Central Bank of America the ones who pull all the
strings. The reason they stopped funding Hitler was because he took control of printing
money in Germany away from them and moved into the bartering system. Its always
been about money that's the power follow the money trail and things start to make
sense.

History / The Polish Blame Culture! [330]

Given that Germany wanted a colonial empire which automatically meant taking some of it from Britain they had no choice but to align with France and Russia

Like you Sokrates I'm glad they made that decision because it gave Ireland a chance to brake free, but that's from my own point of view as an Irishman. I still think it was the wrong decision from a British point of view. Nine hundred thousand dead, over a million wounded, and in hock up to their eyeballs to the yanks. The next war completely wiped them out, and lost them their Empire so what did they gain. They were fighting the French and the Germans in North Africa in 1942. One thing always puzzled me about the the invasion of Poland by Germany and the USSR, England declared war on Germany why not the USSR as well. I would like to know your thoughts on this.

The first is Zionist the second is Baptist. Israel is the weapon platform for the wealthiest family in the world, who are responsible for the existence of Zionist Israel. And where do you think Israel conjured up this wealth to buy Poland, Hungry, and Manhattan, from selling oranges?.... The only people that ever made them feel insecure was Hitler, and Napoleon not because of their intentions towards the Jews. More because of their economic policies.
