Polish Army WWII and citizenship


LMarch
25 Jul 2020 #1
Hi My Father (American Citizen) fought for the Polish Army during WWII. (He was rejected from American army due to color blindness). Went through Canada and overseas. Does anyone know if at any time due to this that he would haven been awarded Polish citizenship? Parents were born in Poland but in the late 1890's. Not sure if they (in 1920) declared Polish citizenship. Any help would be appreciated!!

To add more context my grandparents were born in Poland but came over before 1920 and I have not aware what they did as far as their Polish citizenship.

Did he ever go to communist-controlled Poland after the war? If he didn`t, it is impossible he was granted the citizenship coz such things had to be dealt with personally. Even if he was granted the citizenship by the Polish government in exile, I doubt it was recognised by communists in Poland.

Check at the nearest Polish embassy or consulate, they have such data.

Hi No although he did fight for the country he never made it to Poland before the end of the war. Thank you!

How sad that there is still a generation of unrepentant communists who effectively put Poland's history starting with the PRL to frustrate and deny citizenship to the Polish diaspora while at the same time bemoaning Poland's demographic decline.

Yes, those communists are really incorrigible. Fortunately, we got rid of them in 1989. Now, we are being invaded by their mad followers, neobolsheviks from PiS. The situation is really dire. How can Am Polonia help Poland ?

How, when you are still around?

neobolsheviks from PiS.

PO did nothing for Poland's diaspora with roots from before the PRL.

Of course I am. I didn`t leave Poland for good like you after 1989 when the borders were open. True patriots stayed and built this country! Ha!

Of course it is a completely erroneous opinion. I forgive you coz you are a foreigner so you know little about Poland.

Then give examples of what PO did for Poland's diaspora with roots from before the PRL.

I'm not talking about those Poles who were forced out of Poland during WWII and the PRL to former Soviet Republics.

I'm referring to those Poles outside the communist bloc who were denied recognition and re-entry into Poland since the 1940s until now by your fellow PRL apparatchiks.

Very easy. As a foreigner, you are not aware of the very important fact: PO lawmakers contributed to passing the law allowing to issue Polish Card to all people who feel Polish, although they never had the citizenship. HA! It happened in 2007-2008.

those Poles outside the communist bloc who were denied recognition and re-entry into Poland since the 1940s

Ha! Why are you so worried about a re-entry of Polish diaspora now if in another thread you openly suggested a wanna-be Pole to give up coming back to Poland? You don`t remember so here is sth to refresh your poor memory:

I even said : why are you discouraging wanna-be immigrants from coming and settling in Poland? You don`t live here, so fvck off and leave us alone.

HA!

They don't need Polish citizenship. If they want it, they can come here and integrate rather than using Poland as an easy way of obtaining EU citizenship.
