Just look:


Once a year on august 1st, the people of Warsaw pay hommage to the fallen heroes that fought for freedom in 1944 during the Warsaw Uprising. The biggest rebellion against German Nazi occupation during WWII cost over 200 000 lives and destruction of the capital.

:) No use to explain, bro. Most of those monsters full of beer know nothing about the things and ideas their ancestors were dying for. Maybe they even do not know who were their ancestors ... :biggrin:

Was that related to me? :Smile_ohmy:
I am german. I know an awful lot about the "things" and "ideas" my ancestors were dying for in WWII. And I dont like them. Germany was f***ed up that time and I dont WANT TO remember or honor it or even think about it.

I'm polish. And I know that not all Germans were nazists, not all were taking part in war crimes. I think you know that, too.

I'm sad to read this. Do not throw all things that happened during WW2 into one basket.

I am a Pole.
I do not wanna write much of the event - because it is often clothed in political contexts.
This is part of our history .... we're just proud of our grandfathers - who fought for our children to speak in Polish ... many of them are under 18....
I personally do not blame the Germans of today - I know that we can build the future - on a good relationship ...
I would like to make our nations take on those days, not because modern Germany to blame themselves ... but to no more such a thing does not happen again.

I'm sad to read this. Do not throw all things that happened during WW2 into one basket.

1.: Alright then :) i dont like beer

2.: Everyone is always responsible for what they do and not do. I honor those who died in order to stop hitler. I do not honor anyone who didnt do anything about it.

3.: I dont. But its the societys fault this psycho could become what he was. I'm not proud of it at all. What they did still affects us every day. You dont know what its like to be a german these days. Every man in every country thinks "hitler" when they hear "german". Its the first thing that comes to their minds. At least its how it feels. You can't critisize Israel for its politics without being called "Antisemitist" (<- which generally means you dont like jews) or "Neonazi" for example.
All this bullsh** happened a few dozen years before I was born. I am in no way responsible for the actions of my ancestors nor do I honor them.
We don't have a own country no more. Germany is becoming more and more "New-America". We lost EVERYTHING in this war and I should be proud of anything that happened? No. My Ancestors screwed it up.
I dont care how many minuses you give me for that but well.... WW2 and my Ancestors can kiss my cheeks.

Like I said - many young people in Poland (like me - I am 37 years old) - do not look at everything that happened (in occupied Poland in WWII) in a matter of guilt or victim and executioner ...
Those were bad times for Germany - and very bad times for the occupied countries ....
I look back on it to remember the victims (all) not for to settle who was to blame ... and I believe that through this memory among the new generations - do not repeat the mistakes of the past ....
Only fools looking for Germans today, as only the Nazis
Thinking about the Warsaw Uprising - just thank my ancestors for this spurt of independence and I wish the victims ...
