Genealogy / Popular Polish Names during the 1920s through the 40s? [16]

my babcia's name was Leonarda.. we called her Lonia. :D

and I think that the jewish/yiddish names would've been most unique in pre-war poland, at least compared to the common names of ethnic Poles today.

Examples: Menachem, Herman, Mordechaj, Yitzhak, Szmul, Shevah, Moshe, etc.

Life / How do Polish people see homosexuality? [152]

What about the poles who are living in the UK? Are they more open about such things because they are living outside Poland?

Just like the Poles living in canada or the us: the gay ones are out and about.

I've met plenty of 'em here in toronto. They're all soo damn nice & down-to-earth! :D

Oh no!!! This is so ignorant! I rarely encounter people that feel that way towards other human beings. It's so sad to see those words...

my parents are (or were) major homophobes, yet they attended the gay pride parade in toronto 2 years back and came back home all excited, exclaiming how fun and colourful it was. bwaha ha ha :D

Life / The facial piercings scene in Poland [7]

okay, so I'm planning on visiting Gdańsk (my birth city - have last been there in '99) and a few others possibly this summer, and I'm quite curious about the whole 'piercing-scene' in Poland. I have two lower lip piercings, a nose ring, and 2 eyebrow piercings.

My mom keeps telling me about all these skin-head hooligans attacking people randomly on trains and even on streets, so I am quite concerned. Would I stand out too much and become a direct target? lol =OO

Plz n dzięki~

Language / How to pronounce the Polish word "w" in sentences? [15]

Kot jest w domu(i think its domu anyway), is the w silent?

it this phrase it's pronounced as 'v' ... but sometimes it is unvoiced to an 'f' sound like in the phrase:

'Robiliście już zakupy w sklepie.
'

Co

in cyrillic alphabet, со would be pronounced as polish 'so', but in this case our 'c' is always pronounced as 'ts'. kinda confusing.

власне волѩ так писать! :D:D

Life / IS Poland in danger of becoming the next multi cultural sink hole? [201]

A J

most of those living abroad are distant relatives of mine, many whom I've never met or even heard of, and from what my mother told me, they were forced to leave Poland after WWII. Why? I really don't know. Maybe they are Jews. ;) After all, the ones living in Manhattan are filthy rich!

But majority of my aunts, uncles, cousins, and extended family do live in Poland, so be it.

annnnnnnnnnnd btw, STFU+GTFO. kthxnBYE =)))))))

oh and Palivec, it is ironic indeed. :D

Life / IS Poland in danger of becoming the next multi cultural sink hole? [201]

If i may advise Poland as a non-Polish person, i would advise to set a maximum of 0.1% non-Europeans (38.000).

finally a post worth reading. someone who thinks logically. BRAWO, BRACIE!

the majority of the posters on here are so damn retarded. honestly.

Of course immigration is welcome in poland--as long as it's from europe and by WHITE europeans only. SIMPLE.

EVERY polish person i know and talk to, including my huge polish extended family (living all across europe, in brazil, israel, and US) all say that they would never in their lives want to see 'colored' people - aka asians, africans, arabs - in their country.

Racists? well duh, they're Polish and damn proud to be, unlike you scums.

All of them also agree that the worst immigrants of them all, without any doubts, are the MUSLIMS... black, white, tanned/brown-- it doesn't matter about skin color! This satanic cult of a religion is the biggest threat to all of Europe.

RACISM IN POLAND IS WHAT WILL SAVE POLAND AND EASTERN EUROPE IN THE FUTURE. I fully and proudly embrace it.

Genealogy / "Choroszucha" - Jewish family name? [17]

Ok, so my mother recently got this family tree thing from a relative of hers in Poland, and it only tracks back to the family name "Choroszucha" from around the mid 1800's. My mother and her parents + grandparents are all from the town of Zabłudów (Białystok County, Podlaskie Voivodeship). Now, from what I've seen around the net so far, i'm convinced that this last name is jewish, but my mom claims her family line is entirely Polish, ethnically.

Any professional historians out there reading this?? Please, do cure this overwhelming curiosity of mine.

PLEASE! dzzzziiięęęękkkkiiiiii :D
