You gotta be kidding me re english.. hell just a few weeks ago i was at the costa coffee in skytower and a girl was interviewing another in english - even though theyre both clearly poles and spoke English with a super thick accent. All the time i run into people speaking english especially younger people..

Except the academic was Polish, and you Sir, are a German advocating violence towards Polish professors, just like the Germans did in the previous era.

And you wonder if you'll be welcomed in Poland with an attitude like that?

Why should a Pole care if one professor is acting "patronizing and arrogant" to his collegue?

More likely an unhinged morons brain mouse fell out of its wheel that day and he was looking for any excuse to cause trouble, sadly an innocent guy became a target, maybe it would be better if we asked the mouse what happened.

@Bratwurst Boy
Not patronizing to his colleague. I mean displaying condescending body language combined with speaking German triggered the attack.

Based on my observation, Poles tend to be much more reserved in public places, where many Germans have no qualms about being loudmouthed.

The conversation was probably held at a loud volume in a train where everyone else is silent.

I see academics doing this quite often in long-distance trains in Germany.

Nun ja...he asked his attacker:

'Why should I not speak German?'

That naive question probably still standing upright might have been to much...I agree...he has only himself to blame...how dare he!

Not defending the attack, but I'm not surprised that a German-speaking professor was attacked, and not a German-speaking family on vacation.

Well...might have been because the attacker wasn't rational but drunk...a violent drunk it seems. They don't need a reason for lashing out...

yes how dare they hundreds of Germans come over the border at the weekends in German cars to stock up on pork shoulder, they do nothing but speak German while in the queue , they are always greeted with a polite hello and goodbye when they reach the checkout, terrible just terrible.

Back to the point random nutters, thugs and nazis are few in Poland like many other countries, but sadly sounds like the prof bumped into one of the afore mentioned.

Fair enough. During the bus and train rides I've taken in Poland, everyone sat there in silence and no one spoke on the phone.

define quiet... it's true that some Polish people never stop talking (even in places like concerts) but the overall decibel level is pretty low...

because most English speakers have had trouble at some point or another

can't say I ever have...

Really? I find them on a par with Southern Europeans in terms of being loud and animated.

That's because you speak Polish ;)

With Spaniards? I was frustrated in Poland because it was so hard to eavesdrop (a necessary skill in learning a language) because their voices were too low.

because you speak Polish

But also when speaking English I've never had an issue (okay a lady looked at me real funny in at the check-in line in Malaga airport but...) I did know a Polish guy who got punched speaking German with a German friend (by guys from a factory).

That's now a part of the folklor I guess. Let them enjoy Polish pork. I don't mind as long as they don't stock up on king of meats: the beef. You are what you eat they say :-P

I find them on a par with Southern Europeans in terms of being loud and animated.

That only says how much you know about Poles, my bald man obsessed friend :-P

Poland is exporting almost all the good stuff produced here, even to Saudi Arabia.

Poles are reserved in public, amongst friends and family though thats a different story

Yeah the old public/private dichotomy - not as strong as it used to be, but still very much a thing. People keep the lid on the pressure cooker in public and take it off in private...
