To the contrary I can give you thousands of examples of Jews being rescued by Poles, among them MY GRANDMOTHER and she didn't do it to hear now that Poles are anisemitic

Thank you for making generalizations, not just of an entire community but also of a single poster at the face value of a single reply.

Vitriol aside, you do have a point that Poland has the highest "Righteous Among Nations" awards. However, Poland also had by far the largest native Jewish population, giving more opportunity to help Jews escape than other nations. Schindler's List? Krakow.

I think the argument that Poles and Jews don't mix is because Poland had one of the lowest survival rates of any holocaust nation. Maybe Poles themselves weren't dangerous for Jews but Poland was.

I find the Polish connection a bit of a disconnect since it doesn't take a degree in History to know that Poles were on Hitler's shit list along with the Jews. I didn't think it was a stereotype that Polish people didn't like Jews until this thread/episode. It may be a case where the writers of the show and the posters in this thread thought "eh, close enough?" with respect to Germany and Poland?

I'm going to give you the benefit of the doubt and operate under the assumption that English isn't your first, second or third language. But your post was still spittle-flecked, badly-constructed, frothing, over-reacting and generally guaranteed to draw nothing but contempt or ennui. Come back when you calm down and try to present your arguments coherently.

Or not.

I find it kind of interesting that she'll believe other wikipedia pages, but not the one ftg posted.

Take the discussion of Poland the Holocaust out of the thread about this sitcom, please.

Uhhh, Mr. Moderator, sir? May I gently point out that this thread is nearly a year old?

I'm all in favor of taking the discussion of Poland's role in the Holocaust out of the this sitcom thread, of course, and I recognize that this tangent technically began during the thread's previous incarnation. That said, that hijack was only there for the last week of that incarnation, and I guess what I'm really trying to get at is that this is one of the small number of zombies that should be locked.

You probably shouldn't have needed to point that out. I saw the date 4/26 but didn't stop to think that that meant the show was from last year. I'm closing this thread.
