You might be right here but the opposite could easily be the case as well: Since there is a migration underway away from eastern Germany it would be potentially easy for immigrats from Polish regions to become the dominating ethnic group in former German regions.
This is completely absurd. German society puts a lot of pressure on Polish people to abandon their language and roots. Discrimination of Polish language and people is a reality in Germany. You can for example find classes in Chinese but not in Polish, although they are over 2 milion Poles in Germany. Poles have no rights as minority in Germany, although Polish state has granted rights to Germans in Poland-who at once used it to rename a lake to Hitlersee among other things.
German nationalism is openly encouraged by German state, for example by forbidding parents to talk or teach Polish to their children.http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/main.jh ... world.html
A Polish father has become embroiled in a row with Germany's welfare authorities after they banned him from talking to his daughters in his native language.
In a case that has outraged public opinion in Poland, Wojciech Pormorski, 36, has been told by the Hamburg city authorities that regular dialogue in Polish with his daughters, aged seven and four, would hinder their integration into German society.
Mr Pormorski separated from his German wife 18 months ago and has been denied access to their daughters after refusing to guarantee that he would speak to them only in German.
Polish state television has made a document on this persecution of Polish language in Germany, and they are thousands of cases like this.http://www.ruf.rice.edu/~sarmatia/401/212schlott.html
Alas, the legal conditions afforded by the German political system act against such harmonious integration. As a result, both the Aussiedler and other Polish immigrants usually believe that it is better not to reveal Polish identity in Germany. Countless examples of hostility (extending even to tourists) and discrimination support these conclusions. (16)
The Germans speak arrogantly of Polnische Wirtschaft, thus confirming the economic differences between the two countries but conveniently forgetting the German (and Prussian) contribution to the destruction of that Wirtschaft. In the opinion polls about various nationalities, Poles rank lower than Turks or Russians, and 87 percent of young Germans regard them as "worse than themselves."(17) In popular TV programs, Poles are presented the way blacks were presented in the American press half a century ago. On the other hand, during the time of communism in central and eastern Europe, it was difficult for Polish and other immigrants from communism to develop pride concerning their country of origin. The poverty of eastern and central European countries, their lack of democracy and constant economic crises evoked the feeling shame and jealousy as contrasted with West German prosperity. The discrimination of Poles (and of other ethnic minorities) in Germany has been exacerbated by the extremist right and its slogans of Deutschland fÃ¼r Deutsche and AuslÃ¤nder raus!
Still another problem is the culture shock stemming from two different perceptions of what Europe really means. To Poles, it seems natural that they, together with the Germans, belong to a common European culture and share a common religion. This feeling of belonging together is not shared by the Germans. While the Poles accept German culture as part of European culture, the Germans do not see Polish culture as sharing the same cultural roots. While an educated Pole knows at least some German writers, the opposite is not true of an educated German. The growing realization of this situation, the feeling of frustration, anger and resentment not only against the Germans but also against Polish culture is a natural result, and some immigrants begin to share the prejudices of the dominant group. While the emigration of the last 20 years has somewhat softened these problems, they still do exist.
The 1930s are over. The Germans are really quite happy being rich, with a few couples retiring in Silesia or Pommerania, or even the odd group of tourists going to Kaliningrad (former East Prussia). That's it, that's the extent of it, you're just frightened.
This is completely naive and ignorant of what is happening in Germany. German society is subject to rebirth of massive nationalism. Germans try to re-write history in which the main victims of WW2 are Germans alongside Jews, Germans want to portay Germany as equal side in WW2 and erase German crimes against others(besides Jewish people). Germany refuses to compensate countries it destroyed in WW2.
The current leader of Germany has honoured a person responsible for ethnic cleansing of Polish people and destruction of Poland by signing the portait of said person in his main office. German media are full of arrogance and prejudices towards Poles. Not a week goes by without German media publishing a racist portayal of Polish people as thieves, criminals and primitives that Germans must educate.
Germany openly and disregarding all pleas is pursuing to establishing an alliance with Russia aimed at destroying Polish security.
you're just making things up.
Of course. It was me who builde the Baltic sea pipeline that will allow to blackmail Poland, It was I who signe the portait of person responsible for ethnic cleansing of Polish people in German high office, it was me who reguralry makes racist portayals of Poles as criminals and barbarians in German media. It is me not German president that adresses meetings of organisations founded in part by former SS members.
That said, if you want to scream the "sky is falling" until your lungs bursts, you have the right to do so.
Yeah sure, it will be quite normal for the West to ignore Polish warnings. After all they ignored them in 1939 and 1945 and things went fine...
In the Eurasianists’ view, it was Tatars – to be precise, the Mongols of the 13th century – who laid the foundation of Russian statehood, culture, and, to some degree, even ethnicity.
