       Poles talks too much about Molotov-Ribbentrop pact of 1939 and Katyn massacre, but did themself the same things even earlier. In 1938 Poland and Germany divided Czechoslovakia (though with no cooperation).
       Winston Churchill called Poland in the period between the two world wars the «Greedy Hyena of Europe». Yes, Poland was the first victim of Hitler’s intervention, that's everybody known truth. The less know truth is that the regime of Pilsudski did with its concentration camps (many thousands of the Russian and Ukrainan captives were starved to dead after 1920 war), ethnic cleansings and rough treatment of dissidents.
