A Few Words About the History of Poland
By Prof. W. J. Wagner
WITH A FEW EXCEPTIONS, an average Westerner is not familiar with the history of Poland which is fascinating and completely different from that of other countries. Its main features are: on the international scene, unwillingness to use force, and on the internal forum - early introduction of democracy and recognition of human rights. It is remarkable that after the extinction of the Piast Dynasty in 1370, Poland did not wage aggressive wars and expanded its territory and influence by voluntary unions with some neighboring nations which were attracted to it by its culture and spirit of freedom. Yes, history registered some famous feats of the Polish army, but they were performed during defensive rather than offensive wars, and the defense was either that of their own country or that of other friendly nations, in accordance with the well known Polish dictum that "we fight for our and your freedom". Because of the fact that for centuries the Polish forces were stopping invasions of the "infidels" from the East - the Turks and the Tartars (Mongols) - Poland merited the well deserved nickname, "the bulwark of Christianity". Thus, King Henry the Pious defeated the Tartars, but perished, in 1241 at the battle of Legnica; King Ladislas suffered the same fate in 1444 at Varna, in distant Bulgaria; and in 1683 King John III Sobieski delivered Vienna from a siege by the Turks and saved Europe from their invasion. A more modern event was the defeat of the Red Army, ready to conquer all Europe, at Warsaw in 1920.

The First Jews in Poland
The date of the arrival of the first Jews onto Polish soil is unknown. Ibrahim ibn Jakub (a Jewish traveler, merchant and diplomat from Tortosa,Spain) in the account of his journey in 965, mentioned Krakow and wrote of his first historic Duke of Poland, Mieszko I . The author of these historically valuable notes was certainly not the only Jew to travel through the Piast lands. Some settled here permanently with their families to make their livelihoods through commerce and the crafts. In later times, banished from many countries, victims of social and religious upheavals, intolerance, and persecution, Jews looked to Poland for asylum and here they found it. Polish dukes and kings, such as Boleslaw Pobozny (1221-1279) and Kazimierz Wielki (1310-1370) , appreciated their talents and thus granted them privileges and conditions for a peaceful life. Boleslaw Pobozny's Charter of Kalisz (1264) guaranteed full security for Jews, their communities, and property. Accounts have survived of the "Rhodans"

Bribery Culture, or
the Republic of Zloties
Ewa Pagacz Bad Subjects , Issue # 48 , March 2000 When my mother had a cerebral hemorrhage, after the ambulance and emergency room care, the first item needed was bribe money. In Poland, a good bribe can keep death at bay for awhile. Although health services remain socialized, there has been a de facto partial privatization through bribery and cost transfers. My mother's shared room provided only a bed. The ward nurse gave me a list of necessaries, beginning with soap and ending with a bedpan. "Families have to take care of such things," she told me. "The government doesn't have money to support hospitals and we lack the basics." So I ran out to purchase the items from the nearest store. After much waiting for an examination, a physician told me that a CAT scan would be needed, but that the hospital did not have the facilities to provide one. A nearby hospital did have the necessary facilities, he told me, but at this hospital there already was a long queue of patients waiting for scans. The message was clear: if I wanted my mother to be examined as soon as possible, I would have to pay a bribe. Without hesitation, I paid the head nurse 1 million old zloties (about $25) and my mother got a CAT scan. There was no time to analyze the ethical questions. My mother's life was at stake and time meant everything. The scan results were bad news and, twelve hours after her stroke, my mother had to be transferred to a neurological clinic in another city. However, they could not operate until the next morning and an imported medicine was needed to stabilize her condition. Three days dosage cost one and a half times my monthly salary as a teacher, and so off I went to borrow funds. The next morning I stood at the clinic pharmacy, waiting for it to open. When it did, the pharmacist handed me a form requiring a 'voluntary donation' to the clinic. I might have refused, but it was understood that if I refused to make a donation, then when the supply finished in three days I would probably not be able to buy more. I would be told "Supplies are limited." So again I paid a bribe. Twenty-nine hours had elapsed from the time of my mother's stroke until she received her desperately needed medication. In the West this medication would be have administered within an hour.

Poland's new Jews Second and third generation Jews are returning to Poland and reclaiming their old districts. In Warsaw, old ghetto streets are finally being classified as national monuments and restored to their former glory. Meanwhile in historic Crakow, from where our correspondent reports, there is great hope for a revival of Jewish culture, thanks to the foundation of a community centre, academic institution and summer festival. By Jennifer Brown C racow native Henryk Halkowski is a semi-retired expert on Judaism. He spends most of his afternoons at the Ariel cafe, a place that has come to be known as the social hub for the small Jewish scene in this picturesque Polish city. Over a cup of tea he enthusiastically discusses hopes for a revitalisation of Jewish life in Crakow. "Some people say there is a great Jewish revival in Poland and a phoenix is rising from the ashes of Auschwitz," he says. Cracow's traditional Jewish quarter, known as Kazimierz, the scene of the filming in 1992 of Steven Spielberg's classic, Schindler's List , has increasingly attracted tourists and locals seeking to get closer to their country's vibrant Jewish past.

P oland today is ethnically almost homogeneous (98% Polish), in contrast with the pre-World War II period, when there were significant ethnic minorities: 4.5 million Ukrainians, 3 million Jews, 1 million Belorussians, and 800,000 Germans. The majority of the Jews were murdered during the German occupation in World War II, and many others emigrated in the succeeding years. Most Germans left Poland at the end of the war, while many Ukrainians and Belorussians lived in territories incorporated into the then-U.S.S.R. Small Ukrainian, Belorussian, Slovakian, and Lithuanian minorities reside along the borders, and a German minority is concentrated near the southwest city of Opole. The Path of Pilgrims and John Paul II I n religious terms, Poland resembles a mosaic. In addition to Christians, particularly Roman Catholics, but also Eastern Orthodox and Protestants, there are adherents of Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, and other religions of the Far East. Nevertheless, it is Catholicism which is overwhelmingly dominant.

Culture and Culture Evolution
Among The Lemkos Of Southeastern Poland
In The 20th Century
The Carpathian Mountain area of Southeastern Poland, once known as the Lemko Region, is an area that is today sparsely populated, mostly by Poles, with a few exceptions devoid of much of its previous character, and deprived of most of the remnants of its historical past. However, before World War II it was home to a colorful Eastern Slavic ethnic group known a s Lemkos, who are considered Ukrainians by most scholars but who have a distinct language, culture and history. Who are the Lemkos, and why do most of them no longer live in their Carpathian homeland? The Lemkos of Poland are also known by the regional name "Rusyns" and sometimes among themselves as "Rusnaks." In the last years of World War II, much destruction had been wrought throughout this region and the Lemko population was forcibly removed. Living today almost entirely in diaspora, even within Poland, the Lemkos have shown a remarkable attachment to their native culture though their settlements are dispersed and their organizations are few. The situation of the Lemkos today provides a valuable opportunity to examine how an ethnic group’s culture changes and is preserved in the difficult situation of existing almost entirely in small dispersed settlements outside the original homeland. The purpose of this paper is: to provide a description of the Lemko Region and a brief but thorough account of the history of the Lemko people so that the events critical to their development will be understood; to examine the facets of the Lemkos’ traditional material and spiritual culture in the early part of the 20th century; and to investigate how that culture has been preserved and has changed in the years following the Lemkos’ deportation from their homeland.
