No history this month

Recently Polish public debates concetrate mostly on completely unimportant subjects for the citizens' daily life like historical events or pseudo-religious events (cross in front of the Presidential Palace in Warsaw - holy for some but for others an object of ridicule). There are so many urgent matters to talk about (plans to raise taxes, low standards of the university education, sex parities in the elecction, womens' rights, LGBTQ rights...) but media choose easy infotainment. Unfortunately tv journalists seem to have poor education and interests. As I'm irritated I would like to protest;)

I'm not going to write about the 66th anniversary of the Warsaw Uprising and also about the 90th anniversary of the Battle of Warsaw.

But I'm not going to leave you just like that. About this first battle I recommend you to watch this interview with the women partisans (in Polish). History is always dedicated to men but fortunately some people try to overcome it.

About the latter - somebody has described it better:) Now in Warsaw in Krakowskie Przedmieście street you will find huge photos of Józef Piłsudski and Lenin. Controversial but looks well.
