Now I Understand

For many years, I have struggled with my Polish daughter-in-law’s defiant approach to life. She sent me a September 4th BBC Travel posting that addressed the issue of why Polish people hate rules. Olga Mecking tells the story of her grandfather fleeing the Ukraine during World War II. He felt he could hide in Warsaw where no one knew him. The first thing he saw when he arrived “was a woman selling bread at Central Station, right under a poster threatening death for doing so.” That woman was surely my daughter-in-law’s grandmother.

  1. just finished reading a book titled Last Hope Island. If you read it you’ll understand why the Polish don’t like rules. The Allies really screwed them in WWII
