Kopernik - Polish or German?

What do you think about that Nicolaus Copernicus was German not Polish? English wikipedia did not show exactly the nationality. I think he was Polish.

Every German has Polish roots. Almost! Even Hitler wasn't German if we consider Austria as not German.

Life / Poland's National Anthem "Mazurek Dąbrowskiego" (download mp3) [49]

why has Poland changed the national anthem for?

The national anthem always was and be "Mazurek Dąbrowskiego" - this was the most hot candidate for the anthem, there were 2 more candidates:

Bogurodzica (The Mother of God) is the oldest Polish religious hymn. Written in the 10th-13th century. Polish knights sang it as an anthem before the Battle of Grunwald and during the battle with the Turkish army at Varna in 1444. (wikipedia)


Rota ("Oath") is a 20th-century Polish poem and anthem (wikipedia)

I Think that ROTA has a great words:

Nie będzie Niemiec pluł nam w twarz
The German will not spit in our face

Ni dzieci nam germanił
Nor Germanize our children

Language / Polish/Ukrainian words similarities [209]

Ukrainian is a brother of Belorussian and Polish is much more similar to Slovak I think, or maybe even to Croatian

Maybe you and I can chat and find out how to entice the ladies of to come to America - especially SoCal for a tour.

Ewa Sonnet is now a singer in Poland so maybe she will be doing a concert in US.

History / Norman Davies - the Brit who loves Poland and becomes one of Us [250]

Anne Applebaum - can you say more about her?

Stefan Batory was a Hungarian and one of the best Polish King so why not Davies?

He is of rare breed: he is leftist but he doesn't sugarcoat actions by USSR. I respect him.
Another good historian is Anne Applebaum (who is also married to a Pole):

Oh my good! She is married to Radek Sikorski one of the most popular politic in Poland - the most honorable man in Poland military and who will probably could win presidential election!
