Top 5 Things To Respect About Polish Culture When Living Here

As my 16th month living in Poland approaches, the country is soon to overtake Australia and become the fourth longest country I have lived in in my life (Hong Kong, England and Northern Ireland will still be ahead). I have learnt a lot living here, in Gdańsk and Warszawa, but some of it I learnt when I simply backpacked here four times before settling. I have just two Polish provinces left to visit on my conquest (follow my map) and I aim to backpack them before the 31st December 2017. But what have I really learned and what should YOU know before visiting Poland? This is no golden bible, there is no masterplan but this is my opinion. That’s all. These are my top 5 things to respect about Polish culture when living in this beautiful country and I hope to promote the country more and more as it grows on me day by day.

Top 5 Things To Respect About Polish Culture When Living Here

1.They are GERMAN DEATH CAMPS, there are NO Polish Death Camps
International idiots (Barack Obama included) need an education still, otherwise the next generation will hear the history books wrongly. Poland did nothing wrong here. Poland was relaxing, enjoying a cool life when the Germans invaded, took over, annexed the land, set up DEATH CAMPS and killed innocent people. These are facts. A lot of these GERMAN DEATH CAMPS were located in Poland, but none of them are POLISH. The Germans claimed the land and set up the death camps. The death camps are written in German (Do you think a Polish person would write “Arbeit Macht frei?”), they were run by Germans, managed by Germans. They were German, NOT Polish. It was mostly Polish and Jewish people “living” (dying) in these camps. They are German Death Camps.

So NEVER refer to them as Polish, it is horrible that people still don’t understand the history here. And even the words “concentration camp” sound wrong (and though I sometimes also use that term), “death camps” is more accurate. Everyone that came through the doors never had a proper life again so they weren’t really “concentrating”, they were dying. It is horrendous. I have so far visited 4 of these German Death Camps, 3 Historical War related flashpoints and 2 War Museums in Poland. More will come as I aim to educate. Also the use of the word “Nazi” is contemporarily inaccurate as Nazi doesn’t exist. They were Germans (and Austrians). There is no Nazi language, culture or country. Hash tag the beast until people know the horrible truth. #germandeathcamps

German Death Camps, not Polish. Don’t forget.

2.Learn Some Polish
It still annoys me that some tourists simply demand and order things in English in this country. The country is Poland and guess what their language is gorgeous! It’s also one of the easier languages to learn for English speakers, as the alphabet is quite similar, with just three letters omitted (x, q, v) and a few extra added such as ł, ż, ś, ą, ę. I can understand English speaking tourists visiting Israel and not speaking Hebrew, India and not speaking Hindu, Saudi Arabia and not speaking Arabic and China and neglecting Chinese. But Polish is much more understandable and cool.

Still not convinced? What do these Polish words mean in English? Too easy…

Normalne – Normal
Tramwaj – Tram
Mleko – Milk
Kawa – Coffee
Wino – Wine
Budynek – Building
Cukier – Sugar
Stacja – Station
Ogorek – Gherkin
Komputer – Computer
Alkohol – Alcohol
To samo – The same

Not hard to work out, hardly like learning Chinese is it? So get some basic words learnt and impress the Polish people you meet. And yes, endings of words and some words are complicated in Polish too, but you get the idea – lots of Polish words are easy to work out.

3.Respect the Church and Pope John Paul II
I might be biased here as I go to church and believe in Catholicism and Protestantism these days in equal measures having grown up in a country (Northern Ireland) of both faiths. But the highest building in most small towns and villages remains the church for a reason. It is a Catholic country. It is vitally important here. Know it.

Respect the Church and Pope John Paul II

Pope John Paul II is a hero to many here, a true man of honour and respect. Do not say anything bad about him and do not disrespect the church. In fact, go on holy pilgrimages, as I twice did on my first year here – once to Holy Pelplin to Pope John Paul II’s Hill, the home of the only Guttenberg Bible in Poland and my tour to Częstochowa, a truly inspiring and holy city.

Touring peaceful and holy Pelplin, finding peace.

4.Eat Tons of Pierogi
Instagram this stuff like there is no tomorrow. Despite hailing from Northern Ireland and having a love for Mexican food as well as my beloved Ulster Fry and some Italian pizza, there is no doubt about the number 3 cuisine from my travels now. It is pierogi. I have become addicted to it and I’ll try any filling except mushroom. I need pierogi at least once a week now to survive.

5.Know the Polish Sporting Gods
Poland is a proud nationalistic country. Robert Lewandowski is a God here. So is Zbigniew Boniek. So is Robert Kubica. So is Kazik Deyna. So is Lato, top goalscorer of the 1974 World Cup when Poland finished third. Poland also finished third in the 1982 World Cup. Also did you know that Poland once beat Italy, Argentina, Brazil, Sweden, Yugoslavia and Haiti in the same World Cup and still didn’t win it??!! It’s true – in 1974, inspired by Kazimierz Deyna, they won 6 out of 7 matches, scoring 16 goals, Lato being top goalscorer with 7 goals. Their only defeat was a late 1-0 loss to West Germany who were the winners in the end.

And with those five parts of Polish culture to respect, you should fit in nicely. Remember, this is a short and cherished life my friends. Enjoy it. And if you can, visit Poland and Northern Ireland during your lifetime.

  • I’m guessing you don’t like Germans or Germany? To equate Nazis with Germany in general is like associating the IRA with all Irish Catholics?

    • Hi Paul, you have got to be joking here? Are you as ignorant as Barack Obama? He labelled these as POLISH DEATH CAMPS. They are NOT Polish. They are GERMAN. Where did NAZIS come from??? Some magical land that didn’t exist. No they came from Germany (and Austria). It’s a fact. When did the IRA have anything to do with Irish Catholics?? They are for Irish Nationalism, nothing Catholic about them. Catholics are religious people who don’t set bombs off. I am an Irish Catholic and I am not in the IRA so you are insane. And as for not liking Germans or Germany?? If you have ever met me, you will know that I have backpacked Germany about 5 times (probably in my top 50 countries) and I have over 20 German friends. As I said these are GERMAN DEATH CAMPS. Nazi doesn’t exist. Only in idiots worlds. Best regards, Jonny

  • Beautifully written as always. Point 1, even though I am not Polish, disturbs me out of my wits. When I hear people saying POLISH DEATH CAMPS I instantly light up! But I must admit I am a English language speaker and my native language is Romanian (Latin language) and I still find Polish language rather challenging 😉 All the best, The Twisted Red Ladybug

    • Hi Anda, thanks for your comment. I totally agree 100% with you (and you knew that) and almost all of Poland will agree with us and most of the world should too. Those camps were set up by GERMANS and written and actioned in GERMAN. They were NOT POLISH!!! As for the previous comment from Paul, it is ridiculous you mention the Irish situation, as if you didn’t know Paul – I am Irish myself!! In Paul’s eyes, every IRISH bomb attack in England down the years would be OK to class it as an ENGLISH CAR BOMB just because it was in Manchester or Brighton. They were not English car bombs, they were IRISH!! It’s the same Paul – those were IRISH car bombs and even though I myself am Irish, I have no issue with English people calling them IRISH bombs as they clearly weren’t English people to blame. I suppose you will also class the recent Muslim and ISIS attacks in London as ENGLISH TERRORIST ATTACKS? Again, the country that is the blame should take the blame. End of story. The history books will tell us that those Death Camps were German. They were not Polish, nor any country or moniker that ceases to exist. Read more books or visit Poland and you’ll understand it better. Best regards. Jonny

      • I would call them IRA bombs not Irish bombs, in the same way I’d call them Nazi death camps not generally German. Very few Germans would support the Nazis now, although 400,000 people in NI alone voted for the IRA recently.

        • Hi Paul, that is your opinion and fair enough I respect it but in years to come will either “NAZI” or “IRA” EVER be a country?? They won’t. So we look historically at the country they are FROM. IRA are IRISH. Nazi are GERMAN (plus AUSTRIAN) Polish people did NOT create death camps, do you know that????? They were created in Poland by GERMANS (Under IRA/NAZI/GErman/ISIS/TALIBAN Terrorists – who cares????). GERMANS DID IT!!! Those bombs in England, the ENGLISH did them?????? NO NO NO they didn’t the IRISH did them!!! Not the IRA. IRA is not a country!!! IRISH did them. NORTHERN IRISH, SOUTHERN IRISH, IRISH, who cares? – it was Irish NOT English. You can happily tell me those were ENGLISH bombs (I have no problem with your opinion) and that the POLISH made death camps in their own country, but neither ME nor the rest of the world will believe you. Quite frankly YOU ARE WRONG HERE. Go and join Barack Obama with his “American bombings of NYC”. ENGLAND bombed their own country this week?? Horrible.

          • You seem to be getting a tad hysterical here, considering the very valid point that Paul is making eg to say that the bombings carried out during the Troubles were carried out by the Irish is factually correct but can imply that the conflict was purely “Ireland vs Britain”. To say that bombings were carried out by the IRA (or PIRA, or Irish republican extremists, or loyalist extremists etc) is far more nuanced in that it doesn’t in any way suggest that it was a nation vs nation conflict.

            To say that the death camps and concentration camps constructed in Poland were German is, again, factually correct but losing the prefix “Nazi” also means it loses nuance and historical context. And Paul’s reply didn’t imply in any way that the Polish constructed the camps so I can’t really see why you’ve thrown your toys out of the pram.

          • Hi Robert, thanks for your comment. I am not at all hysterical. I am stating facts that need stated. These are German Death camps in Poland. Nazi is not a country, or a language. It is an extinct group of people so to continue to use that term is absolutely ridiculous and absurd. The writing on all these death camps is in German, the people who ran the camps were German, the documents found were German. Hitler was Austrian but most of the Nazis were German. Now to put this in context for you – Polish people did NOT attacks the Germans (or the ex-Nazis that don’t exist anymore). Poland was innocent here. The fact is that German people and Barrack Obama often refer to these as POLISH DEATH CAMPS. They are NOT POLISH. Yes, lots of the camps they are geographically in the current country of Poland but in 1939, Hitler and Germany felt they owned this country. Even the main squares in Warsaw and Krakow were given German names, often named after Hitler himself. The Polish street names were removed. Poles, Jews, Hungarians, Russians, Slovaks (and yes some Germans too) were killed here by mostly GERMANS. Our generation needs to teach this NOW before the next generation gets it wrong. They are not Polish Death Camps, they are German Death Camps. Arbeit Macht Frei is German. We also should not call them Nazi Death Camps as Nazis came from Germany so the history books need to be correct here. In 100 – 200 years time if nobody tells the truth like it is, the books will call them Nazi or Polish Death Camps and the people learning will then think that Nazis were evil Polish people killing their own people. They were not – they were German.

            To put it on the other foot. If these were Polish Nazis setting up camps in German from 1939 – 1945, German people and the world would SKIP the word Nazi and call them POLISH DEATH CAMPS. We know this and don’t pretend you are stupid. The fact is Poland is innocent and Germany is guilty. It does not matter whether the whole of Germany supported Nazis or the whole of Poland was anti-Nazi or not. The fact is the Germans would get away with calling them Polish Death Camps and the world would follow in their lack of intelligence. So they are German Death camps to intelligent people. Stupid people call them Polish Death Camps and people who don’t care about educating the next generation are happy to use the extinct “country” you speak of as Nazi. When you get a Nazi dictionary, teach me how to say “Arbeit Macht Frei” as for now, it’s German. Paul and you are welcome to your opinions but I can never agree. Paul himself is ill educated, naming the IRA as Catholic!! They are not religious – they are a terrorist group!! Irish Catholics and Protestants we hate it when people use our churches and our Gods as a reason to kill. I hope one day you will understand this. Regards, Jonny

  • Jonny,
    There were lots of Germans who ended up in Nazi concentration camps as inmates, not as guards, for example,communists,jews,gays,anti-social elements,disabled people,Germans in mixed marraiges to name some groups of unfortunates .
    Actually the first Nazi camp was opened in Germany for Germans in Dachau in 1933.
    Regarding people who supported this satanic ideology in practice,there were lots of non-German Nazis, like Dutch ,Norwegian,English,Irish,,Italians ,Spanish,ect who were an integeral part of the Nazi machine.So it’s not so that German = Nazi
    A really good source of information is a documentary reader called- Nazism 1919-1945- edited by J.Noakes and G.Pridham.
    Cheers!

    • Hi Michael, thanks for the comment. Yes of course I know that but ARBEIT MACHT FREI is German. There were also Irish people bombed in England by fellow Irish people and USA people shot in USA by non-Americans. The point is these are NOT POLISH DEATH camps, the history books should never write that. ANyone that calls them POLISH DEATH CAMPS or tells me that NAZI is a country and that they were not Germans is deluded. They are GERMAN built death camps!!! WHo built them?? Germans! The debate ends, history I hope tells the truth. Thanks for the extra information and sources. Best regards. Jonny

    • You claim to be not hysterical yet fill your post with multiple exclamation and question marks. Perhaps “very excitable” would be a description more to your liking.

      You say that Nazi is not a country (which seems odd, as nobody has ever claimed that it was) and therefore it shouldn’t be used. That is quite an extraordinary thing to say. Do you think that history should forget about the Nazis? You seem to think that that word should be expunged from history books.

      Your self-righteous rant about how history needs to teach people “facts” seems a little odd, not least because what you described (Germany invading Poland, setting up camps etc) is, and correct me if I’m wrong here, quite well known. Also, the preserved camps are pretty informative when it comes to their history. I can’t see anyone who takes even a cursory look at second world war history thinking that the camps were anything other than the products of Nazi Germany. But if you feel it’s your job to tell people this then good luck to you.

      You call Paul ignorant and accuse him of “naming the IRA as catholic”. What he said was “to equate Nazis with Germany in general is like associating the IRA with all Irish Catholics…”. Your accusation amusingly reinforces the point he was making.

      • Hi Robert, I have made my points and I only go round in circles if I state them again – excitable – yes I was until you and Paul started being negative to a suicidal person with a real life honest tourist blog. These are GERMAN Death camps, not POLISH Death Camps. Take your ill educated comments elsewhere please, rather than come on to my websites and stories. Most people enjoy my stories and come here to support and enjoy my nice tourist blog. Feel free to have your own blog about your opinions and send me the link, but for now, this is my blog and my opinion. You can believe what you want but Germans killed Polish and Jewish people for no reason. Safe travels. Jonny

        • With respect, if you only want comments that you entirely agree with then you should state that. It would save you a lot of anger and other people a lot of time.

          You seem to think that Paul and I think you are talking about Polish death camps. Neither of us have said anything remotely approaching that so I think the word “hysterical” really is appropriate here when it comes to your responses. So perhaps “ill educated” (sic) is not an accusation you should be throwing around.

          Good luck to you.

          • Best wishes to you too Robert, we have to agree to disagree here. You are talking about Polish death camps – that was the subject I raised in the article, the title of point one refers to Polish Death Camps. I sincerely hope you have backpacked in Poland and Germany and seen those countries for real to back up your strong opinions on the subject. Yes I don’t like negative comments from people who don’t back up their stories with their own website or blog as I say – send me your blogs and travel articles and I will read them –
            you can dedicate a whole website to your Polish and Nazi camps if you want rather than criticise others who work professionally in the tourism business. But anyway, good luck and best regards, Jonny

  • Wow. Just when I thought you couldn’t get any more self-righteous!

    I don’t have particularly strong opinions on this subject. You are the one who seems to have very thin skin when it comes to their opinions being questioned. And, once again, I haven’t mentioned “Polish death camps” – that was you. Like I said, if you really, really don’t like having your opinions questioned then having an open comments section is probably not a great idea.

    So I don’t have a blog or a webpage to “back up” my opinions. If you think that makes my opinions any less valuable then that’s a particularly tragic way to look at the world and how we assess information and its sources.

    Backpacking through a particular country does not necessarily give you an unbiased, objective or indeed accurate view of historic events in that country. And neither does having a blog and/or website make those views any more accurate or objective. You have your own, subjective views which you have chosen to publish online. There are plenty of websites, books, TV programmes etc that cover the subject of the Nazis and WW2 in general. And a great deal of those were produced by people who relied on years of careful research rather than backpacking and working in tourism. But what do they know, right?

    • Hi Robert as I said I disagree with you and now you cannot even back up your own claims with your own story of living in Germany or Poland, or even backpacking through Death Camps. Those who have researched thoroughly and backpacked through the countries know A LOT more than those sat at home on a keyboard. I wish you good luck during your time here in Poland and Germany and hope you finally see that Germans were nasty to the Polish and not the other way round. Safe travels and best regards. Jonny

      • “you cannot even back up your own claims with your own story of living in Germany or Poland, or even backpacking through Death Camps”. So what you appear to be saying is being a blogger and visiting places makes you an authority when it comes to history. You should pass this on to people who work in education. After all, what’s the point in studying history for years if you just need a backpack and an attitude!

        I have travelled in Germany and Poland many times. That does not make me an authority on the two countries any more than you travelling in Poland makes you an authority on all things Polish. The same for Ireland. But being as I don’t have a blog on Irish history maybe I’m not allowed to have an opinion on that either. The rules are just so complicated….

        “….hope you finally see that Germans were nasty to the Polish and not the other way round….”. For someone who claims to know all about Polish and German history your analytical skills are sorely lacking eg from my posts you extrapolate that I think the Polish were “nasty” to the Germans! I think this is you lashing out at someone who points out the rather obvious flaws in your arguments with facile insults. But it’s your party so rock on. The youth of today need your insight.

        • Hi Robert, you continue to comment negatively and even worse you concentrate (forgive the pun) on the first point of my five points on what you need to respect if you visit Poland. You mention nothing about learning the language (you must be fluent), nothing about going to church (you must be athiest), nothing about eating pierogi (you must know how to make it) and nothing about Polish sporting heroes. You came onto this page with a pro-Nazi agenda that is unwelcome. The aim of this post is to explain to any readers five important things to consider when living in Poland yet you don’t care about that – you only have a Nazi agenda. This time I hope it is the end of the conversation as you try to sabotage a blog promoting Poland as a beautiful place to live. I hope you learned something about the church, Polish pierogi and the language today as this post is all about love for Poland. Best regards. Jonny

          • So by suggesting that “Nazi Germany” would be a good way to describe the builders of the death camps in Poland that makes me pro Nazi?! It appears lashing out with hysterical accusations is your default setting.

            You say the ” aim of this post is to explain to any readers five important things to consider when living in Poland yet you don’t care about that”. It would more accurate to say that IN YOUR OPINION these five things are important (and you might want to add “don’t question or criticise me in any way as I react very badly”).

            If you publish a blog, an article in a newspaper or similar you, by definition, invite comments and opinions from readers. Some of those comments will be negative. You seem to think that by questioning what you publish that somehow means I’m trying to sabotage your blog. Perhaps it’s time for you to take a step back and look at my posts (and, more pertinently, your replies) and try and take an objective view on what’s reasonable and fair. If you decide that any questioning of your posts is just ridiculous, insulting, pro Nazi or similar then just turn comments off. It’s not like cracking the Enigma code, is it?

          • Hi Robert, I have already seen who and how you are as a person. You have a crazy nazi fettish and agenda, reiterating it again and again, ignoring the rest of my website and article. You STILL have not commented on the other 4 reasons that people should respect about Polish culture. What this suggests to me is that if I change the article to “Top 4 things to respect” and leave the German Death Camps part off it, you won’t even care or comment. In which case, I don’t need or want readers like you. I try to portray Poland as a beautiful and epic country to backpack and to live in. You come on and sabotage it claiming the Germans didn’t invade and set up death camps. They did. It’s a fact. And Pierogi is great. The Germans didn’t destroy it, I’m having it for lunch today. Best regards, Jonny

    • Hi Rafał, Thanks for the link – it is good to see the truth being told as a history lesson so the future generation will know these were Germans that set up the camps and killed innocent people rather than Polish or the “where is that country?” – Naziland (doesn’t exist). Like I said, when replying to others – if there were POLISH NAZIS setting up Death Camps in Germany and killing Germans, the whole world would call them POLISH DEATH CAMPS rather than Nazi Death Camps. This is because Germans would call them Polish Death camps and everyone would agree with them – that is racist and largely due to the huge PR machine countries like USA, UK and Germany feel they have and are superior. End of conversation – German Death Camps. In 200 years we won’t hear of Nazis – it should be “Germany invaded Poland with their troops and killed people in their German Death Camps”. This is simple fact. Finally – good to have a Polish opinion on here as judging by their names Robert and Paul are likely not Polish and not well educated on this subject. Best regards, Jonny

    • Here’s a simple question for you – can you give me an example of something I’ve written that shows I have a nazi fetish or that I think the Germans didn’t invade Poland? If not, then it appears that this may be all in your head or, once again, you cannot stand the thought of your opinions being challenged (and challenged by someone who dares to not have a blog, no less) and just lash out with unfounded and possibly libelous accusations.

      I can wait…………..

      And, once again (again) – if you really, really don’t want people to leave comments you don’t agree with then don’t publish these comments in the first place. I would sign off with something smartarsed here but the comment at the end of my last post clearly went over your head so I won’t bother.

      • Hi RObert, Again no mention of pierogi, churches or Polish language!! You are obsesses with negativity and Nazi-ism as that is all you comment about. You don’t care about my blogs, Polish culture or my writing, so I don’t need or want “readers” like you. I’ll write another post on top 4 things without German Death camps and no surprise – you won’t comment because you don’t care. I love my opinions being challenged by the way but not history. Germans invaded. Challenge that! Germans set up camps. Challenge that! Arbeit mahct frei is German. Challenge that! Pierogi is delicious. Challenge that. Long live Pope John Paul II and Polish culture. Goodbye Nazi Germans. Jonny

        • Hi Robert, just to keep you happy I have changed it to a “top 4” things to respect as clearly you have no respect for those who were killed here so the death camps are now not to be respected by you. I look forward to your more positive comments about pierogi and the beautiful churches we have 😉 Or were you only visiting to change the word German to Nazi? Because it seems that way, I have no time for single minded people or bigots on a nice tourist blog. Best wishes. Jonny Here’s the top 4 – http://www.northernirishmaninpoland.com/top-4-things-to-respect-about-polish-culture-when-living-here/

        • So, the answer to my previous (very simple) question where I asked you if you could cite an example of me having a nazi fetish or thinking that the Germans didn’t invade Poland is – no. No you can’t.

          Yet you still fall back on your default position of petulance and flinging rather tragic insults around. Perhaps a perusal of libel laws might be a good thing for you to do at this point before you dig yourself into an even deeper hole.

          But you did make me chuckle with your little exclamation-laden parting shot – Long live Pope John Paul…….!

          • Yes you do have a NAZI fettish. You only comment on THIS article and not my new one!!! You tried to change all my words about Germans into Nazis! They were GERMANS. And still no mention from you of pierogi or the Catholic church from you – because you don’t care – you have a political agenda. From now on, I won’t be writing about Germans and I will only write about Polish food and the church and parts of Polish culture that YOU have no interest in – you single minded blog sabotager. I might also delete this article and with it go the proof that such an idiot ever visited my positive and beautiful Polish website. Yes, Long Live Pope John Paul, long live Pierogi and the Catholic Church. Goodnight German Death Camps, they won’t dare to invade us again.
