Shortly after WW1, a newly free Poland stood up against the might of the emerging Soviets. During the early-mid 1930's a huge upheavel in Poland was caused by some middle ranking staff officers. In the early 1950s ,after Stalins death, the pressure on Poland eased slightly but still,untill the 1980s Poland was subservient to the Soviet Union.
Now in the 21st century its rather pathetic for people to take dole charity for some percieved failing somewhere between the mid 30s and mid 50s, especially so when anyone with experience of Poland know fine well that charity is a far worse swear word than any kurwa thrown around in the street, or is that just giving thats a no no, recieving is honorable is it?
EDIT after reading seanus' post above,posted as i was writting the above ;
