      After leaving the station, the two Britons headed out to a secret facility at Pyry in a forest outside the city. British, French and Polish codebreakers had already met once, earlier in the year. Polish women are unlike Western women due to the historical, cultural, and political situation of Poland. The woman in Poland has always been put on the pedestal. She has been cherished as a homemaker, a mother to her children and a great wife.

    The Polish Woman, set in New York and in Poland, is a gripping post-Holocaust story with a fresh, highly suspenseful mystery twist. The novel is the story of a search for the identity of an attractive young woman who appears to be a possible survivor of the Holocaust--or perhaps a cunning scam artist. Amir tells the story of a Polish woman he met, who did time in a concentration camp, in order to illustrate the point that you should not judge a book by its cover and/or reinforce stereotypes.

      quite a load of crap in my opinion, i can only agree with the polish mother part, all the rest is about just one kind of woman, and not necessarily a polish one. no offence but if you have a girlfriend who happens to be polish don’t put every single woman from that country in a bag labelled ‘polish’,they’re not like that at all.   The beloved children's books were some of the victims of a Catholic book burning in Poland.
