Only recently did Jewish Poles feel comfortable expressing their identity. I bet that will change once again.
Poland. Of all places in the world…POLAND.
Even Poland isn’t immune from the growing and blatant anti-Semitism plaguing the world right now.
Poland. Then again, Poland just elected a leftist government that would be led by none other than former EU Minister Donald Tusk!
Ugh. There have been a few anti-Jew protests in Poland.
“Keep the world clean.” “From the river to the sea.”
But then again…history.
The Axis killed around 80%, probably more, of Polish Jews in WWII. Poland didn’t return to normalcy after WWII. It became a “satellite state” of the USSR with a Communist puppet regime. many of those who escaped didn’t come back.
Those who stayed felt the wrath of the Soviets and Communists.
It wasn’t until this year that more Poles started to identify as Jewish. The country’s Jewish population is only 7,500 that people know of. There could be as many as 50,000.
This article is dated October 2, only five days before Hamas invaded and massacred thousands of Jews.
It hurts to read this now:
At a reception for the community, Israel’s ambassador to Poland, Dr. Jacob Livne, said that many more Jews in Poland were willing to declare their religious heritage and that was a very positive development. “I am happy that more and more people are no longer afraid to speak openly about being Jewish. The strengthening of ties between Israel and Poland in recent months helps to strengthen the relationship between the State of Israel and the Jewish community and preserve the Jewish heritage in Poland.”
I’m sure the number will go down due to the disgusting anti-Semitism on display in the country.
"You don't know what is Hamas? Yeah, I don't know"

Another large pro-Palestinian march was held in Kraków, Poland yesterday, with protesters holding banners saying "End the Palestine Holocaust" and "No consent for genocide".

Mayor @trzaskowski_: "In #Warsaw – a city so severely affected by history – there can be no place for hatred and anti-Semitism. There can be no consent to anti-Semitic banners… Anyone who commits them should face legal consequences."
Thank you! 🇵🇱🤝🇮🇱 https://t.co/a66djDpI6k
