How interesting that the word used for violent slaughter of innocent people can now mean an overwhelming victory, in a positive light, in modern Poland. It kind of makes me feel that they, as a nation, have never come to grips with their guilt in their past actions, and their collusion in many of the Nazi actions against the Jews.
It is kind of like how the Japanese did not educate their young folk on the history of their occupation of Korea and Manchuria, and their brutal treatment of those peoples, over many years, until somewhat recently. It was either simply not mentioned, or written of in language that made past actions seem quite reasonable. They had words more like 'liberate', then occupy, and "colonize" than subjugate.
