Poland is a very important part of history, I don't see how you could deny it. They've been a bastion of Catholicism when the other countries around the northern sea adopted protestantism. They're natural enemies to all Scandinavian countries + Russia.

The Commonwealth had an enormous impact on how Eastern Europe turned out to how it is today. They missed out on the industrial and enlightenment cool club because of the partitions, but even then made an impact with famous artists and scientists such as Chopin and Marie Curie.

19th century Polish emigrants were the best. They were all over the place discovering, writing, creating in places like France, South America or Australia.
>>
>>565661
Well, he is clearly from a German family (Kopernigg), was raised German and visited a German school. Although the idea was a nation was alien to them, the idea of a German people wasn't. There was in fact a strong identification with German heritage among the Eastern European German diaspora, which is why it survived until the 20th century in the first place.

>>565679
you're arguing about nationality before the concept of nationality was even born

His family came from Silesia so probably a mixed Polish-German-Czech heritage (family name: Watzenrode) but he was definitely considered himself a loyal subject of his kingdom considering he fought for it and worked to improve its economic system.

Is it just me or is antipolonism and general antislavicism on the rise?

Being slav myself, should I get the fuck out of the West and take refugee in some war torn part Africa or Middle East before they start rounding us to extermination camps? I doubt local warlords would mind a slav fighting for them, despite worldwide antislav media campaign that would no doubt take place.

Dude. At this time, even Krakow had a German speaking administration. His family belonged to the local German upperclass. Back then, Poles were considered savages.

This is the whole problem. This whole made-up pan-slawism bullshit. This is early 20th century thinking - you are further alienating yourself from the civilized the world with this made up bullshit. When it comes to Poland, their education is just ridiculously nationalistic - and lacking a cohesive worldview.

You may or may not have heard of the Hansa. It stretched from London to Norway and even from Krakow to Koenigsberg. The Hansa was a federation of German merchants. They had a huge impact on the development of Eastern Europe.

Banach based lots of his work on deciphering and proving Wroński's pseudo-philisophical ramblings which were barely readable to begin with and had math formulas stuffed here and there.

You never had any Polish books used in school to learn history, did you?

The only things mentioned are that Konrad Mazowiecki invited them to help with getting rid of Prussians and that it backfired, battles of Płowce and Grunwald are mentioned (with bias towards the second one thanks to the Soviets), there is probably few sentences about christianisation of Prussians and finally the secularisation of Prussia.
>>
>>568167
A Brit wouldn't acknowledge it. He would've said that "some Poles helped cracking the easy and old version of Enigma which doesn't really count and was super easy."
>>
>>565788
In XV/XVI centuries? Definitively not.
1311-3 brought the end of it because German townsmen from Kraków, Wieliczka and Sandomierz thought that the Czech rule would be better and rebelled, they lost, majority of Krakowian non-Poles were massacred and German was banned from being used in administration.
>>
>>565844
Hanza was organisation of merchants. Some of them were Germans. some of them were Scandinavians, some Dutch, some Balts, some Poles and other Slavs, some were even Jews.
Mostly Jews, Germans and germanised Slavs/Balts but not Germans only.

>>
>>568091
Actually Crown peasantry have it good. Not a single peasant uprising in Polish ethnic lands. Where on East and West you had constant boiling state.
Simply economy.
On West there were plenty of people but not so much land. Ever wonder why Germans move from Germany? It was divided war torn shithole with high taxes, food shortages and surplus population.
On the other side East has plenty of land but not enough people. This is why they were bound to land and forced into servitude.
Poland actually have mixed system that was really good for peasantry.
