From what I have seen the Polish are very sneaky and some can be manipulative. Poland is a very corrupt country.

Random Chat is commonly known as 'the bin'

I wonder, are the moderators Polish, quite a lot of the comments end up in "the bin".

They sneak in the shadows and steal you!

Poland is a very corrupt country.

Wrocław was good enough to outline a story here. He is trying! I've never had anything stolen from me here, save a pen or two.

Poland isn't a nation of thieves.
It has a significant amount of them, for economic reasons,

Really? Every society has a certain portion of the population willing to cheat, steal and lie; the difference is that ours had learned their trade from the best, you know - Jews for whom economic reasons is not even a factor, it’s in their nature.

yah, blame it on somebody else. I wonder what would happen to Poles if there were no Jews to blame for Polish shortcoming? I bet they would blame another nation or a group.

Is it? dose the truth hurt? Somehow you haven’t been outraged by Midas racist comment, wonder why?

yah, blame it on somebody else.

Pointing out the obvious, weren’t the Jews the ones that were accused of thievery themselves over the centuries. Ironic that some Jewish ar***** accuses Poles of it now, is it the case of (blame it on somebody else) that you talk about?

Gypsies....

Don't you love the Polish anti-jew crap :) Makes me laugh every time I hear the whole "all the Jews stole all our money".....so what happened after WWII, was there secret Jew colonies under the ground still doing it?

Problem with the Poles is that they can't admit to having their asses banged over :DBlame them, blame him, blame my neighbour, blame anyone as long as we can believe in the lie that it could never be our fault! Cry babies :D

I don't follow you, please be more precise.

Gypsies....

oh, yah........of course:)

Don't you love the Polish anti-jew crap :)

I am bored with it to be honest, since there is no backup whatsoever in such conclusions. If anything, Jews were robbed, especially during the WW2, when they had to go into hiding, so people took whatever they had to leave behind.

by then most Jewish were gone, so you have a point.

some def fit that category, I have heard it enough times and it appears that you have too.

Blame them, blame him, blame my neighbour, blame anyone as long as we can believe in the lie that it could never be our fault! Cry babies :D

Yes, even my family members are like that at times. If I question them they roll their eyes and say: it is your fault- incredible. lol

Broad generalisation. We can blame the Poles who are enough smart to abuse other Poles. That's sad true.

lie that it could never be our fault! Cry babies

but you agree that sometimes its not our/his/her/their fault or are you another self-made man who naively thinks that will never have a bad luck in life?

Excuse me, by Poles?!

I would think so....who else was around...?

Jewish family gets dragged away in the early hours by the einsgruppen leaving a nice house full of nice things...Did the Poles next door secure the house and await the return of the family...? I think not , the contents would have been in some Polish house before the German truck had left the street...

As for the house...i imagine there was a few fights over that before some Polish family moved in...

One of the reasons Jews are so unwelcome in Poland now is that there are many Poles hoping to inherit a house from their elderly relatives...that they ain,t gonna get if the decendants of the rightfull owners show up...!

It was something that would annoy me a little, more of a stupid stereotype than anything else.

it appears that you have too.

Generally at the pub or at my work here. More worrying sometimes from my students in Poland :/

but you agree that sometimes its not our/his/her/their fault or are you another self-made man who naively thinks that will never have a bad luck in life?

I kinda agree with both. I'm not saying in all cases one person or factor is to blame, but to blame it on a generalisation about one "group" of people is just silly.

I'm not saying that Poles didn't have it bad. I'm saying (for about the millionth time on these forums) that if they would stop blaming others and move on from the past then they would have such better prospects for the future of Poland.

Very good point! Much of Kaz was taken over by Poles, when I was last in Krk there was a big hoo haa about Jews returning to claim what were theirs in the first place.

yes, what do you think happened to all those houses and businesses when Jews had to hide or were taken to concentration camps?They had to leave everything behind. It was war, so I don't really blame them, but to claim that Jews are the only one who steal( I was replying to Short Hair btw) is pure nonsense.

the nazi german officers took it all, you must be kidding you didn't know that. Then after the Holocaust most jews didn't survive so what they had to do with all this stuff? It was nationalized (owned by gov). Aphrodisiac please don't spread your own ideas about how war looked in Poland if you are not sure of some infos.

I would think so....who else was around...?

Germans? ;)
well Poles didn't have to mush opportunities to steal stuff from jewish houses unless it was something hidden under the floor and found by accident. Many nazis made big fortune by reselling value staff from houses of resettled Jews. Am I wrong?

So what the these German officers do with the hundreds of tons of furniture then...?

Must have taken a lot from the German war effort to move all this stuff....

Since they were billeted in furnished barracks it must have got a big cramped in there...?

I can understand them stealing anything small and valuable , but beds and wardrobes...nope i don,t think so...

That's the reason they couldn't fight the Russians....they had their hands full with sofas, carpets and wrist watches!

I don't know, maybe they sell it either if they had some value... or ppl put them in fire during cold winters... or they just stay in the place they were.

Mind that those houses often werent empty after resettlement of Jews to ghettos. They were resettled by Poles who were forced to moved out from areas which were thought to become a ghettos (so it was a kind of swap). I'm not deep into history, but what I heard was that all value things were already taken out by Germans ( I don't mean stolen... they rather were legally confiscated by nazi german authorities).

I'm not sure where I found such informations, so a person who knows better the reality of life those days of course may correct me if I'm wrong ;)

It would be really stupid to leave jewellery, money etc to Poles...

<controversial>

It could be a good deal in the long run. Give them back what they are entitled to, and Poland gets the benefits of Jewish business acumen. It's probably the only way that Crow will ever see Warsaw become the capital of the Slavic world, to be fair. And, as I've said before, Poles aren't exactly world-beaters at business, and Jews... well.. are ;)

I've heard the russian troops even stole the toilets out of the german houses because they didn't had any at home.

You know...Germany wasn't exactly a third world backyard hellhole at that time.
There wasn't much german soldiers could be impressed with as they invaded the East, seriously.
I think most of the missing stuff has gone the Moscow direction....they were notorious for stealing just EVERYTHING what wasn't nailed down (and they tried even the nailed stuff), they were really dirt poor and came from a dirt poor country.

I'm mean not gossips but history resources (a movie document or something like that). Its not like my grandma told me that. I only know from my Grandma that Poles have difficulties to gest food during war... so sorry it seems is wasnt like that: wow those germans are so great now we can sell all those jewish vases, radios and carpets and make great money!

Ppl a little bit more of imagination. WHO would buy such things in occupied Poland?

I doubt you will find movie footage showing looting Red Army soldiers...sorry...
Free speech and independent media wasn't their forte :(

Why not?
If people are hungry they try to sell what they can find...
The german officers for sure hadn't this motivation!

And what do you think why? eh?

I mean huge business not little pick-pocketing. I forgot the name of the Nazi commander, one of the against humanity criminal who made a fortune by reselling goods (hidden money, golden tooths etc) taken from dead jews.

Also the Nazi commanders were stealing value art (paintings etc.)

If people are hungry they try to sell what they can find...

who you think would buy a vase if dont have a food?! Some nuts?
Still a little bit more imagination than you already have...
