Its amazing how much you GENERALIZE!!! I can't believe it!
Ok, I give up. If you fail to see the subtleties in my post, then it doesn't matter what I say, it will all be a generalisation.
So some Poles who allegedly killed 40 Jews DEFINE ALL OF POLAND???
In 1946? Tell me, which mighty apparatus was already waltzing on ppl's minds for years in favour of the Jews? The Holocaust was just becoming known and then a group of Poles kills yet again a group of Jews. How else could it be perceived at the time?
And by the way, you're now generalizing yourself as well. But it's ok. I understand that no matter what happened, THE POLES WERE ALWAYS GOOD. Yeah, so what if some Poles killed some Jews, so what this sent a ripple throughout Europe and the rest of the world. And you really think this does not have an effect on the outside world? Heck, most Poles were embarrassed to bits about it. And, it's not an "alledged pogrom", the Kielce pogrom, it's a proven one.
I tried to explain why Poles have the image of anti semites. But you don't want to hear them, it seems. So be it. Keep believing it's all a scheme against the Poles, while conveniently ignoring what lies at the basis. If you were ready to accept the reasons on this side of the line, I would have explained the reasons on the Jewish side, but since you're not ready yet, I will just leave it at that and you can keep it nicely among likeminded souls. It's like preaching for one's own parish.
I know the truth hurts, but you will have to accept that some Poles did these things. Just like some Jews did likewise things. And until you are willing to accept the former, you will not be ready for the latter.
