to Dragunov - if you didn't read it, why do you speak? How do you want to take part in conversation when you do not know what people talk about?

And closing remark - it should be "za Rassiyu", and not "za Rassiya". Not to mention that at that time there was no Russia in the world. It was CCCP.

to pzrmeyer2 I back up your last post. My opinion is very similar. What I was trying to present is that simple solutions, like: "let's make plebiscite and find out what to do" are verified by real life - usually they prove very difficult in fact. Just choosing plebiscite method can make huge differe...

He he, finally you came up with plebiscite method that would favour Germans - one could expect it. I see you claim that voting rights should be given only to land-owners. Please, explain, why people living in some area for hundreds of years, and not owning any land only due to germanization methods ...

Of course this relates to vivisection ban concerning only animals - humans (i.e. Jews) could be vivisected any time it was deemed necessary.

to pzrmeyer2 Concerning number of Germans in major cities of Pomorze - well, clearly you have not understood what I wrote. There is no question that Germans dominated towns you mentioned. And no doubts surrounding population in villages was in majority non-German (usually Polish). And here comes the...

Sid - sorry, but your own point are crumbling down quite seriously. You can not question that Poles formed the biggest ethnic group in discussed region. Thus - in situation when no ethnic group could achieve 50% share - Poles were predominant among other ethnic groups living there. If you wish, you ...

General problem with making plebiscites: what to do if some enclave community would decide to stay in 1 country completely encircled by other communities voting to go to the other country? Best example would be Lwow in Ukraine (but also other towns in the region) - majority of citizens were Poles. S...

to Sid Do you know by any chance why they called him "Alfonse" ? --- [not WWII realted at all] It rose my interest why they called a French guy "Alfonse", because in Polish word "alfons" means "pimp" (I'm talking about official wording used i.e. in police reports, and not some slang description).

to Kitsune It's easy to criticise, but muh more difficult to come up with something constructive. If you criticise so much Versailles Treaty for restricting German army, taking away some lands, taking away colonies and to some extend reparations. Well, could you propose some other treatment towards ...

I do not quite understand what the hell this topic has anything in common with German military potential in years 1914-1945, but anyway... War in Yugoslavia was started by "Yugos", and not by some outsiders. It was based on religious and then nationalistic causes. Croats are catholic, Serbs are orth...

Purely as a matter of interest, what is you solution to the Eastern Border issue now? Should Lithuania, Belarus and Ukraine restore to Poland the territory lost in 1939? Well, that is quite surprising from you, Sid, that you even considered such a question. Obvious answer is that neither Poland, no...

to Ada Take it easy, you are getting more and more emotional, and your accusations often are quite missed. As for Lwow and Wilno (Lviv and Vilnus) - without any doubts there was a Polish majority there. Both towns were prominent centers of Polish culture and science (especially Lwow). Sid does not q...

My finger was pointed at Germans here in Feldgrau for many times. No doubt. No excuse. NO deny. But I claim thet Allies did not everything they could. Even 1/2. The answer to that is simple - Americans care for Americans, Poles for Poles, Germans for Germans, French for French and so on ... They we...

Come on, Ada. Didn't you hear that some people try to explain German guilt by idea of Wehrmacht fighting against communism, and even protecting and saving whole Europe from communistic plague? There is even a theory that Germany conducted a preemptive strike against USRR to combat communism right aw...

Sorry to break your heart, but many of them knew quite well about atrocities committed in Russia, because some of Wermacht soldiers participated in them. You should also add atrocities committed in Poland right at the beginning of the war - also by Wermacht. And last but not least - killing thousand...
