    I am not so sure that a new Poland exists. There is a lot of publicity to that effect, but it does not convince me yet. The very existence of Radio Marija proves my point. If the Poles have changed that much, why would they allow such an antisemitic outlet? Please remember that Poland , as most of Eastern Europe , r backward countries; the industrial revolution touches them but the majority of people remain functionally illiterate. They live on a float of ideas promoted by their church or patriotic organizations. These sources do not produce liberal thinkers. The Polish leadership knows that the world has changed. They cannot hide their past but they must pretend that they will not repeat it.They can no longer exclude Jews from their universities when they need Jews in theirs, but Jews refuse to go there. The new church doctrine reminds them of their sins , but Jesus "no doubt" saves them just the same. I don't believe that the Poles have changed that much.
