    I was born and rised in Warsaw. From the first years of my life I was a fan of Legia Warsaw football club. Just like my father and all of the cousins and kids from the courtyard. When I went for a game with Widzew Lodz, everytime there were chants on oposing team about Jews. As a kid I even sung them, not understending the meaning, because I didn't know any Jew. I didn't even knowwho they really are. When I started to grow and got my education, I understood, that there is something wrong in this chants and maybe I should know a bit more about Jews and jewish history. Now I have many jewish frinds, also in Israel. Often I visit your country and ihost my israeli friens in Poland. I always want to show them the other side of this country with a beautiful history and prsent. And also the most beautiful jewish harritage. I'm also still a football fan of my belowed club. I know that there are many diffrent parties of fans - not only a minority of extremist ultras, who are shouting loud, but don't have to much knowladge to understand all the nuances. I'm sure that any one of them doesn't even know one real Jew peronaly. Just like me before I started to ask questions. Please don't write that Poles are antisemitic and they supported nazis (milions of polish people were also killed by them and a remembrance of the war and suffering in many families is still fresh). Please don't answer irrational haterd against other irrational haterd. With Respect! Polish Guy
