    Nazis invaded Poland, carrying with them deadly, modern weaponry and a system of violent repression aimed at the country’s Jewish population.
    While Jews were attacked by the Nazis with particular malice, the whole Polish population was violently repressed.

      I was about to comment on this, thanks for pointing it out first. Three million Polish Jews were killed, but nearly six million Poles were killed in total.

      There was a particular aggression towards intellectuals and civilian leaders, as the Nazi plan was to turn the Poles into slaves. Stage one was an attempt to strip the population of its cultural identity, hence for example the banning of the Polish language, the intentional theft and destruction of monuments and objects of heritage (as opposed to the side-effects of an armed invasion), the mass incarceration of university professors, intellectuals and Catholic priests in concentration camps (prior to the imprisonment of Jews)…the list goes on.

    Pah, darnit, I guess when I submitterated a story last year about how a bridge blown up in ww2 had shown up for the first time since 44 due to low water in the river, it wasn’t cool enough news:P

    Well, this IS much cooler. The Swedes lost a lot of ships in our rivers. >:)
