Well, a bit like ancient Sparta.

"Sparta was above all a militarist state, and emphasis on military fitness began virtually at birth. Shortly after birth, the mother of the child bathed it in wine to see whether the child was strong. If the child survived it was brought before the Gerousia by the child's father. The Gerousia then decided whether it was to be reared or not. If they considered it "puny and deformed", the baby was thrown into a chasm on Mount Taygetos known euphemistically as the Apothetae. This was, in effect, a primitive form of eugenics."

“Well, a bit like ancient Sparta.”

And given Poland’s long and ugly history of Jew-hatred, who who you compare her to? Had millions of Poles not actively collaborated in the Holocaust there would never have been a need for an Israel in the first place.
