I guess the best place to begin is the collapse of the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth in 1795....

the best place to begin is Polish–Prussian alliance 1790 the biggest nonsens I have ever heard in the history of my country

Re: Sometimes , I have the impression that the West treats the history of my country as a taboo. Why?
that is the missing history....Prussia....


what do modern Poles know of Prussia i wonder....


and what do you know about Września school strike of 1901?


nothing until now....

after a quick search of the topic, it shows the issues between the Poles and the Germans go way back...


issues between Steinbach and Poles doesn't mean issues between Germany and Poland like issues between you and me.


yes....


but Polish history is drawn on ethnic lines....
 Quoting: Sugarelf


yes specially during WWII 5000 000 Poles murdered by Germans that is an ethnic cleasing

A Polish worker is hired to paint the lines on the road. On the first day he paints ten miles, and his employers are amazed. But, the second day he painted just five, and on only the third day, he painted only a mile of the road.

Disappointed, his boss asks what the problem was. The Pole replies, "Well sir, every day I have to walk farther and farther to get back to the paint bucket."

 Quoting: Johny777 1131591


I think that very natural reaction in that case was using conflict Prussia - Russia (it started before 1790) to destroy one of 3 occupants of Poland - Prussia. Russia would have helped so it would has remained only 2 occupants Russia and Austria. War Russia vs. Sweden and Turkey would have been continued so Austria could have been eliminated thanks to profits from destroying Prussia and finally Russia would have been eliminated (alliance: Poland+Sweden+Turkey) 3 occupants out.

I think that many european countries would have solved it like this , specially the British.

Two Poles are talking about their friend who emigrated to America.

"Did you hear about Kowalski? He opened up a jewelery store after just one year in America!"

"How did he do that?"

"With a crowbar."

Kowalski and Grabowski are building a house. Kowalski is putting on the siding. He picks up a nail, hammers it in. Picks up another nail, throws it away. Picks up a nail, hammers it in. Picks up another, throws it away.

This goes on for a while, and finally Grabowski comes over and asks him why he is throwing half of the nails away. Kowalski replies, "Those ones were pointed on the wrong end."

Grabowski says "You idiot, those are for the other side of the house!"

The UK entered the WW2 as Poland was invaded by Germany and a pact existed between the two nations. At the end of the WW2 Russia was in occupation of Poland and Europe was in ruins. Why that happened I don't know.

When I was in primary school, grade 5 (age approx 10) our teacher read us a true story about WWII and Warsaw.

There are many countries that we never learned about in School. In fact there are many countries that to this day I've never even heard of.

So the fact that I even know where Poland is and its involvement in world history tells me that the OP is wrong.

Andorra? Benin? Djibouti? Never freakin heard of them before today.

 Quoting: Sugarelf


European history is pretty much unknown by Americans, other than our relationship to their wars from 1900 on, which is pretty miniscule over history. European/Asian/Middle Eastern/North African history is fascinating.

I looked at a series of maps online from the last 1,000 years and it was fascinating to see the changing boundaries. For most of that time, there was no Germany, and as posted above, Poland-Lithuania was the largest European country.

Great info.
