But Poland shares a border with Germany. Polish is the fifth (or sixth) most spoken language in the EU. IT doesn't say anything good about Germany if Germans think of it like Zulu.
Well, it's a fact...take it or leave it.
Some Ossis were forced to learn russian back in the day but that was it.
My point is an English speaker would never meet the kind of discrimination in Germany that Poles routinely meet.
The case was that the Jugendamt forbade him to speak polish if they can't provide a polish-speaking social worker who understands what he is telling his children.
If the same fear for the children would be about english-speaking children the action token would be the same. But as there are english-speaking socialworkers much easier to find you won't hear about such problems.
And leave it to the Poles to take an absolutely ordinary handling of such a case and make it to a "those mean Germans hate us poor Poles and steal our children and discriminate us and are all around to bad to us bwaah bwaah"
then why does he even have visitation? If it can be proved then he should have no visitation, if it can't be proved then don't micromanage parent-child relations.
Wot? You don't have all the answers to these questions? You don't know much about this case at all? You have no idea about the background and why the Jugendamt does what it does?
Why don't just stay with "The Germans just don't like Poles and do everything to spite us!"
It's so much easier!
I remember a similar case from a few years ago where a judge ruled that one parent speaking Polish to the child could have a harmful effect on their linguistic development.
Maybe it's still the same case....
PS: Germany's big town ghettos are full of future-welfare-recipients whose parents didn't took the pain to speak with their offspring the language of the host country...now they have no school certificate, can't get any better education nor jobs!
The Jugendamt has a point here too..
There are thousands cases, check here:
Why don't they just leave and go back to Poland!
NeoNazi-Germany must be a horrible place to be for polish subhumans and their offspring.
I really wonder why they still queue up and want in!
