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

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.

POLSKA dla POLAKÓW <3

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

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 / 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~

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

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 / Will Polish people be accepting that im only half polish? [63]

Gary Grzelak, my parents went to poland last year and they told me that not only 'skin heads' attack random people. My mom is very honest and she told me that 'they' love to harass colored people, english-speaking people, tourists in general. Hell, they were approached by them (in their cabin) 4 times while on a 2-hour train trip in north-east (podlasie) poland. One threatened to take my mom's purse unless she handed over a bottle of vodka she brought for her cousin in bialystok. lol

****, i'm fully polish and i'm scared shitless to go there, especially to ride on a bus or train by myself.

Poles are very interested in the Polish expat community and even half-Poles. You'll be quite popular, especially among the ladies.

true... when i was last in poland for vocation in 1999, i was in a playground behind our building and the moment i told these kids swinging next to us that i was from Canada, all of a sudden 20 more kids ran over and huddled around us. lol .. they tried speaking english to me, i guess in attempt to practice theirs.

Life / How many Jewish people live in Poland? [145]

According to Wikipedia:

There are 50,000 Jew in Poland.

those numbers could be wayyyyyyyyyyy off. Many sources state that there could be 10-20 times that amount, or even more. So many Poles (like my father) either don't know about their jewish past or learn about it at a much later age.

regardless, the numbers are growing daily. :D

News / POLAND HAS LOST 1 MILLION PEOPLE (for other EU countries) [30]

in the late 1800's to early 1900's, the average fertility rate for polish women both in poland and america was around 7.1 (my prababcia had 11 kids living on a farm in Zabludow - 4 males died in WWII)..my maternal babcia had 8 of her own (all survived).. and my mom had 4 (+ 2 miscarriages)..

The Polki of today should once again follow this trend, and our population *decline* will quickly be reversed. :D

I don't understand why people are so overly concerned about being financially stable to support their offspring..

I mean, ****.. you have pakistani couples having an average of 8+ kids while living on welfare in Canada, yet they all seam to live happy, prosperous lives, and send their children all off to universities later on.

I'm 24, make just over minimum wage, and live happily on my own... yet i'm incredibly desperate to have kids... I wanna start off with 1, then 2, then 4, then 6...hell, i'd go for 10 or more.. money or no money.. there are ALWAYS ways to support your kids in a developed country, So so so so soo many ways. :)

History / What are Poland's pagan roots? [62]

DOWN WITH CHRISTIANITY!!!!!!!

bring back our beloved Slavic Deities!!!!! <3

Bailobog - The white God of the waxing year; Guardian of the summer. Bailobog would defeat his brother in battle every Koliada to take his rightful place as the ruler of the waxing year. At Kupalo, Czarnobog would defeat Bailobog in battle to assume his position of ruler of the waning half of the year. Bailobog is said only to appear by day to assist travelers to find their way out of dark forests or reapers in the fields.

Language / Weekend vs Łikend [15]

I see łikend used a lot more than the English variant, but if we have Polish names for each day of the week, and words like tygodnia/tydzień to describe the whole week, why not a word for weekends? :O

Another example I like is łał! instead of wow!.. lol
