As others have already pointed out to you Danzig was and still is the German name for Gdansk.
Danzig was the city which Danzigers came from. It doesn't exist any more. I understand that you have never been to Poland, in fact you rarely leave your parents' basement, but if you did go to Gdansk, you'd find a city which is completely different to the one which Danzigers came from. I happen to know more than a little about Gdansk, and its history, in large part because, unlike you, I have been there: I even lived there for a year.
Despite centuries of war and partitions different regions in Poland still retain their own unique local flavor and Gdansk is not an exception to this. Land acquisitions and population transfer don't completely erase a city's or region's past and this is why the past always continues to influence the present. If you weren't so homebound and spent less time satiating your internet addiction you could discover this for yourself.
Danzig wasn't Polish. It's a real pity that you can't go to Gdansk and have a look for yourself: the city was almost completely destroyed and the Germans who had made up 95% of the city's population were virtually all either dead or expelled. When the city was rebuilt it was not rebuilt in its pre-war appearance, the 'old bits were built to seem pre-German. Most of the German and Prussian style buildings which had survived the war were torn down. Even the names of the streets were changed, despite Poles having used different names before the war.
And I never said Wałęsa was originally from Gdansk either.
Quite right: you actually called him a "Danziger". You wanted to imply that he was German, that he wasn't really Polish. You, a teenager who has never done a thing to help Poland, want to insult a Polish hero; have you no shame?
It doesn't matter where he grew up anyway because his name is now virtually synonymous with Gdansk.
Indeed it is, just as Gunter Grass' name is virtually synonymous with Danzig, the city which Grass writes about.
Harry: Do feel very welcome to quote a post in which I say that I've been assimilated by Poland.
Harry: Interesting. I was younger when I moved to Poland than Walesa was when he moved to Gdansk. Let me guess: the 'living in a place makes you from that place' rule also doesn't apply to the generations of Jews who lived in Poland for centuries but are still considered by your ilk to not be Polish.
Oh dear, poor you: yet again reality is not to your liking and so you try to alter it. And as usual you fail: everybody can see that the quote you says not a single word about me being assimilated, it only says that I have been here for some time. Better luck next time.
