Warsaw - A survey conducted in recent weeks among high school students in Warsaw, Poland, presented disturbing results on the extent of hatred towards Jews, with a shocking 44 percent saying they would not like to have a Jewish neighbor.

One thousand two hundred and fifty students, aged 17-18, were surveyed by a Homo Homini Institute of Public Opinion Research poll commissioned by the Jewish community in Poland. Of these, 40% said they would not like to have a Jewish classmate.

The survey found 60% of the respondents said they would not like to have a Jewish partner, while 45% said they “would not be happy” if they had a Jewish relative.

When asked about the Holocaust, the Polish students did not hide their anti-Semitic opinions and showed poor knowledge of Jewish history in Poland.

Most of the students believed that the percentage of Jews living in Warsaw before World War II was 18%, while the actual percentage of Warsaw’s Jews was 30%. The survey also showed that 44% believed that “Poles and Jews suffered equally during the Holocaust.”

Moreover, 27% said that the Jews suffered more and 24.7% claimed that the suffering of the Poles was greater.

However, most of students who took part in the survey, 55.8%, correctly named Mordechai Anielewicz as the leader of the Jewish uprising.

The poll added that 68.3% knew the exact date of the uprising, while 23% thought “the uprising ended with a victory of the rebels.”

Joanna Korzeniewska, a spokesperson for the Jewish community of Poland, said the results of the study will “help us in planning social and educational activities in the future. As it now turns out, we need them even more than we thought before.”

To be respected is not the same as being wanted as a neighbor. You can be respected and not wanted as a neighbor or family member. Do we feel any different?

When are we going to stop trying to make the polish mamzeirum like us. Who cares already. It's been over 70 years since WW2 and nothing has changed. Why are we so obsessed with trying to change them? Their attitudes are only going to get worse no matter what we try. Its an effory in futility.

Hatred of Jews is baked into the DNA of Poles. There's a reason why Hitler built the worst death camp of all in Oscwiecim.

“ Hatred of Jews is baked into the DNA of Poles."

Yes, but that's not the only problem. Poles are also the most blood thirsty of all European people. May not be the most cruel; Russians will probably beat them at that, but certainly the most blood thirsty.

Your pronouncements are devoid of facts or any logic. A few weeks back, when you made the same statement, with historical facts I did contest your bogus proclamations, but as usual when you are challenged by facts, you withdraw to your cocoon, with no reply.

I can't understand why all over Brooklyn and Boro Park there are Hungarian and Polish nannies taking care of our beautiful children. How soon have we forgotten how they burned and drowned our children during the holocaust.
