Poland falls into, what now seems, word trend of nations being disappointed, angry and openly accepting xenophobia and racism.

Ewa Kalinska: graduate from the College of Saint Scholastica, The Jagiellonian University and Amsterdam University. She is interested in the Holocaust and Genocide Studies, post-communist transition in Poland, and transitional justice in Europe and the United States.
