I met Adam Starzynski during my time in Poland. He’s a young Polish/Swedish citizen who has seen a vast difference in the young people between these two countries. He also knows a lot about Polish history – as do many young people in Poland – and took me along to the remains of the Pawiak prison in the centre of Warsaw.
This is a Nazi prison that remains in the city, and which people pass by on their way to work every day. It’s a normal sight to be seen in Poland, and I asked Adam whether this might be one of the reasons why young people in Poland feel so connected to their past.
In this film from our Poland series, I find out just how differently the Polish people think of the Second World War compared to the English.
Our situations were so vastly different, it could be the reason why young people in Britain think so differently too.
I’m really proud of this series of films from Poland, and I hope you like them. If you’d like to chip in to help pay for our modest expenses during our trip, please go to RebelPoland.com.
