It appears that this dumbed down German article is taylor made for Poland haters like you Pesky. Your words will one day choke you.

The accurate script of Piron's words are as follows:

Piron also spoke about the approximately 6000 Righteous Gentiles in Poland.

“In the great darkness which descended over Europe, they glowed and shone as candles in the dark, maintaining humanity and dignity," he said. "They showed us all that even in the face of evil one can stand up, occasionally even at the cost of one’s own life."

The truth is that many thousands if not millions of Poles stood straight and strong against the face of evil, and against certain death if and when the Germans caught any Pole giving shelter to a Jew. Poland was the only country where such deadly discipline was enforced.

That truth is recognized, and will echo down the centuries.

Perhaps so, it's fair to say that Mrs Hitler's dearest child developed into what may be referred to nowadays as a Poland Hater, therefore this article could well have also been penned in such a way as to encourage a hate speech against the Poles, as opposed to quoting Piron accurately and getting a heroic impression of the Poles.

Given sufficient bias and hatred it's quite easy to portray right as wrong, hot as cold etc. Hence my reason for looking up the verbatim statement made, and adding it to this post for future reference.

So I am in agreement with your statement.

WWII was very profitable for the Germans and their partners. Poland will rise again though, and in a very decent sort of way. Of that I have no doubt.
