Bill, are there any suggestions in Poland to remove monuments and tributes from the Soviet era (like for instance is happening in Ukraine at the moment)?

Of course ,this was a BIG Theme After reunification in the DDR.It was handled quite well in my opinion by a special Bundestag commission .

Bill,as I have mentioned before, I know Kolberg well as my mother in law came from there.
