Why Poland is part of the American power play | VPRO Documentary

Why is in Poland an American rocket shield built? Is Poland part of the American power play and if so, why? Has Poland become interesting for America because of its position? What is it, that makes Poland attractive for an American missile defense system?

A quarter of a million Poles live in the Netherlands. Dutch-Polish journalist Dore van Duivenbode is one of them. In this series, she travels back to her motherland, where she visits her family house near Oświęcim, former Auschwitz. In Bialowieza, in eastern Poland, she tries to find out why a forest is causing much tension. In Warsaw, she gets deeper into the hot topic of abortion. Here strong supporters and opponents are giving their perspective. Her travels bring her also to North Poland, where she meets a low-income family and talks with the famous and notorious opposition judge Igor Tuleya. A travel series about Poland, a country that is more and more divided and cursed by its geography location.

In this episode, Dore first travels to the southwestern province of Silesia. She meets a family that talks frankly with her about poverty in their city. Many Poles move abroad to earn more money. However, because of their young children, they are not able to do so. Through a logging company, they try to take influence and come up for those who cannot afford the central heating.

She also meets the motorcyclists Witkor and Pawel. Those who voluntarily stay in Sokolowsko and are satisfied with their job at the Toyota factory in Walbrzych, even though they earn four times less there than employers abroad. In northern Slupsk Dore meets the residents who live next to the military base, where the American rocket shield is built. They prefer not to talk about the missile defense system, which makes them fear for their safety.

The national shooting school in Slupsk is reacting on that. Young people train there to protect the country against the Russian threat. Where does the motivation of young volunteers come to sign up for this type of school?

  • The facts are that Germans are country who support Putin's armaments, as a result of which Poland also needs to strengthen own army and looking for alliance with country like the USA which is the only one country with military capabilities capable of deterring a country like Russia. Such country like example France and Macron are delusional country and have no military capabilities which could give any kind of security guarantees for the region of Eastern Europe. France is rather on way to becoming a Putin puppet who wants to re-trade the interests of this region of Europe for own short-sighted interests.

  • @24:25 professor should get YouTube channel, publish articles, give talks on line…they cut one way, we find another. One thing is clear…history repeats itself and this time Poland sold to the 'other ' side. The citizens do have a legitimate concern….and professor is right on the money.

  • There are 800 US military bases in 70 countries around the world, all there to protect America, so Poland is not alone sadly. Also, the view that everyone in England and other European countries are making shed loads of money is erroneous, some are, but many aren't. Like the wise Polish man said, true wealth is about being content with enough, and the push for ever more material wealth isn't the way to go, not with the ecological, environmental, climate downward spiral that's the result of the filthy rich and their selfish lifestyles. Let's not keep them on a pedestal.

  • Title is confusing, showing a random poor town where most people in Poland actually have good lives, very nice houses and careers, you can find people living like here literally anywhere from the US, UK, Germany and France.

  • According to this video Poland looks like some kind of shithole with poor people and slums. Mostly it's true. I remember that this documentary was all over Dutch national tv last year. Now it's on YouTube.

  • Garbage paid by the Russians and supported by the Russian funded socialist Germans like ex Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder who is on the payroll of the Russian government and Putin.

  • What is this?! Communism in Poland ended more than 30 years ago! That feels like early 90s last century.
