Those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it.

Look how many genocides have happened since WWII.

I don’t want to forget the past, I just think those statements hurt Poland’s reputation and political credibility. In my opinion, it just was neither a valuable contribution to the discussion nor helpful for finding a solution. Such statements might be fashionable in Poland, but on the European level they seem a bit awkward. The history between Germany and Poland is a difficult one, and I understand that there is much mistrust, however, we have to accept the economic and political reality.Most European countries don’t share the view of the Polish president, who constantly blames modern Germany to try to rewrite history. There is nothing wrong with trying to make one’s country more powerful, but in the EU that just works by forging alliances, not by trying to blackmail and shut off other member states.
