It's sad to see good people fight over the past.
Anyway hitting on the rest of the culprits doesn't really absolve those responsible within the BundesRepublik.
However...where do we draw the line morally, historically, socially. If we were to hold a grudge againt the current German State and its subjects then wouldn't that offset our own claims on Individual responsibility, reformation, evolution?
I understand JustBrowsing but the issues are far more complex and include intent, necessity and contingecy on the behalf of the then German Bundes Republik. However it excludes that old historical scrutiny...the Cold War being there.
Bottom line is: the World does not revolve around Poland.
Neither did this thread until Mr. Potatohead here showed up
Ah, denying that a Pole is a human, a traditional characteristic of certain German thinkers.Neither did this thread until Mr. Potatohead here showed up
After 6 million of its citizens were mass murdered, destruction of huge amount of cultural sites, documents, books, works of art, and industrial damage that totals 640 billion dollars. Not to mention those areas were main battlefields in WW2 and had to be reconstructed, a process that even today isn't finished. In addition those territories were compensation for territories lost by Poland not for war damages.Poland got valuable industrial areas in Silesia and good ports in Pommerania and east Prussia and is in a much better strategic position than pre war Poland.
Nope. Germany never paid compensation to Poland.So they were compensated better than any other nation after WW2, which is just as they also suffered most
It's an old news, but the issue remains open.The lower house of the Polish parliament voted unanimously on Friday to seek compensation from Germany for damages suffered during World War II. The resolution passed with a vote of 328-0, with one abstention.
Should Germany be forced to pay reparations, the cost could exceed €525 billion ($640 billion), according to the latest estimates.
Most Polish industry was dismantled or destroyed by Germany during the occupation, not by USSR.Of course the industry was largely dismantled by the USSR
Poland today is in worse economic situation compared to Western Europe than it was before the war(comparing it in 1939 to western Europe in 1939). Economically and demographically Poland never recovered from German extermination attempt and losses inflicted by Germans.but still the basic requirements were there and the Poles made something out of it as we see today.
Hey Mr. Patatohead, stop trolling and spewing your Poland #1!!11 **** here.
The stuff you quoted was there for about 30 seconds until I edited it.
You monitor this thread in real time? Your F5 key must be pretty worn out
Get a life man! I don't know where you are in Poland but from my experiences (Lodz, Warsaw) you can do a lot of better things on a Saturday in a polish city than flame wars with germans
Good Lord, a Pole who plays the victome role. Who would have thought?
Note: No one cares for guys who take the morale high ground from the losers positions. Its like the guy who gets no *****, the one who gets bullied all the time in school and cries about the bad bad world and how much better he is than anybody else not realizing that he is the real loser in life.
If I were a Pole I would be ashamed of you. Fortunately, most younger Poles think way better of themselves, looking at Germany with a kind of confidence and respect who try to live an ordinary life for their own future.
You Sir, are the real historic loser. You Sir, have no future in Poland or anywhere else beside internet forums trolling threads.
What's going on here?
Too bad StormzSTA is banned, he would make good comment.
