Excerpt

"Whereas reason requyres, that those vices, to which any nation doth naturally inclyne, should be restrayned by seveare lawes, those are in Polonia barbarous cruelty and lubricity; thys last being as commun as the fyrst."

(Sir George Carew: A Relation of the State of Polonia and the United Provinces of that Crown ," Anno 15).

Let our foe, the German, fall!
Plunder, rob and set on fire!
Let the enemy die in pain;
He that hangs those German dogs
Will obtain rewards from God.
I, your priest, do promise you
Bliss and joy in heaven above . . .
But a curse shall fall on him
Whoso pleads the German cause.

Polish Hymn of Hate Against Germany, dating from the revolt of 1848.

". . . They [the Polish authorities] torture those that refuse to confess in so grim a manner that the Inquisition of the Middle-Ages dwindles into nothingness before the sufferings to which the Poles subject their prisoners in and near Vilna."

From: Pierre Valmigère, "Und Morgen . . .?" A Frenchman's view on French, German and Polish relations. (Berlin, 1929).

The further you go into Poland, the more you find pillage and murder!

Russian Proverb.
