Interesting and thanks for sharing this with the forum.

It's very interesting, fascinating really, for some of us to read about how the Jewish people continue in Poland in modern times. We had come to think there were none left in Poland.

Are there other Jewish children in your school? Many or not many? I assume you're in a big city somewhere.

I am not surprised that my country is not at the list.

When i went to Poland, most people never had saw any brazilian on their entire life

(Even with so many Pole people moving to there in the 40s)

I dunno, I suppose I just imagined those who remained fled. It's good to see Jewish people here, but somewhat surreal. (I know that sounds odd, sort of thing.)

Intesresting how "wrong" some people are.

I would go with Germany. Simply because there is no denying that Poles appreciate Germany and Germans for their efficiency, correctness, motorways, time-keeping, accuracy, cars etc. etc. etc. etc.

Even though Poles like to give the impression to be rather negative towards Germans, they actually appreciate their neighbours quite a lot. Of course not many would openly say it.

Yes, I live in £ódź. I don't know about other Jewish children in my junior high school, but in my elementary school there was one girl, Estera. She was one year younger than me, so I didn't talk much to her.

I don't know much about £ódż except what was in a very popular British tabloid newspaper :) thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/features/4728585/Polish-city-thats-moved-to-Britain.html

But it's great to read what you had to say (and in really good English, better than mine!!)

It is not possible to like a nation. Most of the times it would be about preconceived notions build over the time from news, history and present relations. Sometimes it would be all about personal experiences and those by its very nature are confined to an individual. How can you build a consistent picture of sympathy between nations or towards nations?

All you have are personal opinions.

I see that Israel's not up there. Sadly, Poland looks like she's moving toward a little Anti Semitism--and the Jews have loved Polinyah for centuries, even a millennium.

Poland build "Museum of History of the Polish Jews" for 100 millions $ mostly Polish taxpayers money. Isreal is getting money from USA as we speak.

What has Isreal done for anybody?

However I, as one of the teenagers living in Poland, don't think that people around my age are antisemitic.

That's good (well, except of course, the "horrible things that happened"). By the way, don't worry: Hebrew is not an easy language. I'm still learning it (I did not know that I am Jewish for 18 years. PS Watch out for the trolls; they will lie about me.).

I can't believe Spain is so low on the list considering how good considered we are here!

I suspect that much of it has to do with Jews and Crypto Jews who are still reeling from the Inquisition. Centuries of pain (especially when the pain is repeated in the countries to which we fled) just don't go away overnight.

None? Seriously? lol InWroclaw, how long have you been living in Poland?

Also, some of my friends from school are Jewish.

I also had a Jewish classmate in my highschool and my other classmates seemed completely oblivious to the fact that he was Jewish and treated him as one of the classmates, nothing more, nothing less (btw, he's not only Jewish, but also a gay and a Catholic, imagine that ;)). His mother is a lecturer, as far as I can remember, and his father is a sculptor (he made a sculpture that was my city's gift for John Paul II) so they seemed to me like a pretty well established family here in Kielce.

She sometimes teaches me Hebrew, but apparently I'm not talented :/

Well, your English is great, especially for a teenager, I would say :)

I would go with Germany.

Very good JR.

When I lived there , employers were not so keen on my "graft". They constantly reminded me that their Polish employees were more hard-working and loyal and they expected me to stay out of the pub too.

Now, that, in Dusseldorf, when I was young, was a tall order!

Deutschland uber alles and if I were a young Pole with technical ability I know what foreign language I would bust a gut to learn. It's a non-brainer.

Indeed. I regret I didn't put more effort in learning German when I was younger. Here (England) we cooperate with German and Austrian companies a lot, they don't always speak good English so I switch to German that leaves a lot to be desired too.

Please immigrate to America. Polocks tend to set a good example for other White people

Merged:

Who do Poles like most and least?



Interesting stuff but in my experience Poles prefer Slowaks over Czechs.
And what happened to Hungarians here?
Yeah,we don't like Muslims,Gypsies and Russians.

In theory for political reasons.... but a lot of Polish people like Czech movies, Czech beer and Prague and Slovakia can't compete.

I'm wondering where "Palestinians" came form on this, Polish people never talk about Palestnians....

Are you actually Polish????

re you actually Polish??

delphian is Scottish.

n theory for political reasons....

Those polls are BS. People are just say something they think its true but oft they just don't care one way or the other.

Ironside - delphian is Scottish.

But even a Scot living in Poland should be aware of the old amity between Poles and Hungarians.

they just don't care one way or the other.

that's mostly right, but when you ask now a lot of young people have a favorable opinion of the Czechs and barely know who the Slovaks are anymore (Polish Slovak freindship was more based on dislike of Czechs which has mostly disappeared since the end of communism)

agreed

But even a Scot living in Poland should be aware of the old amity between Poles and Hungarians

most of the time it doesn't come up so it's more theoretical than real, they certainly aren't enemies like the Russians but most people don't think of them much one way or another...

Exactly. If there was a Polish minority in Hungary, I suspect there would be plenty of resentment towards them given the Hungarian attitude towards minorities.

You suspect wrong my friend.

Speak to some older Hungarians and older Poles and you will understand.

There's nothing to understand. It's a 'friendship' based on very little meaningful, and the idea of being friends with the current pro-Russian Hungarian government is hilarious.

history, which is very meaningful

back in the 1997 floods, Hungarian charities started collections to help and they were surprised at how large the response was

The Hungarians I know are either positive (or at most mixed) about Orban, they don't take the pro-Russian rhetoric very seriously

They should, given the nuclear power plant deal...
