1. Much better read than the usual Poland-bashing, that offers
absolutely nothing for the future of our relations with Poles.
The "but they killed us too" -crowd is correct, so is this group of noble human beings.
You & I choose what you want to bring into the future....

Sadly we shall never know the extent to which these German soldiers met their deaths helping Jews but there were possibly many of those executed who maybe just did
