Ustapic, aby ratowac panstwo przed zniszczeniem, a obywateli przed zaglada.
W takiej sytuacji znalazla sie Polska w roku. Piotr Zychowicz konsekwentnie dowodzi w tej ksiazce, ze decyzja o przystapieniu do wojny z Niemcami w iluzorycznym sojuszu z Wielka Brytania i Francja byla fatalnym bledem, za ktory zaplacilismy straszliwa cene. Historia mogla sie jednak potoczyc inaczej.
Zamiast porywac sie z motyka na slonce, twierdzi autor, powinnismy byli prowadzic Realpolitik. Ustapic Hitlerowi i zgodzic sie na wlaczenie Gdanska do Rzeszy oraz wytyczenie eksterytorialnej autostrady przez Pomorze. A nastepnie razem z Niemcami wziac udzial w ataku na Zwiazek Sowiecki. So below is the wikipedia page http: Pakt Ribbentrop - Beck is an alternative history novel by a Polish writer and historian Piotr Zychowicz.
The author argues that the government of the Second Polish Republic should have accepted Adolf Hitler 's offer of a joint Polish - German attack on the Soviet Union, together capturing Moscow. As Piotr Zychowicz stated in a November interview: And the question is: Did we have to lose our elites, which were slaughtered? Did we have to lose millions of our citizens, murdered by totalitarian occupiers, the Germans and the Soviets?
Did we have to lose our independence for 50 years? The answer to these questions is politically incorrect, because Poland was not doomed to fail. And the answer is included in my book, in which I write that history could have been different".
To give up in order to save the nation from destruction, and its citizens from slaughter. This was the situation of Poland in Piotr Zychowicz claims in his book that the decision to enter the war against Nazi Germany in an illusive alliance with France and Great Britain, was a grave mistake, for which we paid a horrible price. History could have turned in a different way. Instead of biting off more than we could chew, we should have used realpolitik.
We should have made concessions to Hitler, and agreed for annexation of the Free City of Danzig into the Third Reich , as well as for the construction of an extraterritorial highway across the Polish Corridor. And then, together with the Germans, we should have attacked the Soviet Union. Forty valiant divisions of the Polish Army , fighting on the Eastern Front would have sealed the fate of Stalin's empire". Professor Andrzej Nowak called it "harmful and unwise", adding that it "fulfills the wish of Russian and other propagandists, who claim that Poland dreamed of joining Hitler to murder Jews, but did not do it because of her own stupidity".
In the situation that Poland found itself right before the war, the only chance to survive was an alliance with the Third Reich". A heated discussion that ensued after its publication shows that this book was much needed". Poland and Germany divide its territory, but soon afterwards, mutual relationships deteriorate. At the same time, Germany keeps fighting Great Britain , and its American ally. This war is costly, and by , all main units of the Wehrmacht are in Western Europe, fighting the Anglo-Saxons, who had landed in France in summer In those circumstances, Warsaw begins secret negotiations with London and Washington , eventually switching sides, and attacking the Third Reich in Noticing German problems in the West, both countries initiated secret negotiations with the Allies.
The British and the Americans gladly accepted the offer, understanding that it would weaken the potential of the Axis powers ". Surprised Wehrmacht does not fight the Poles, who capture Silesia , Eastern Prussia , and Western Pomerania , cutting off all lines of communication with German units which had remained in occupied Soviet Union.
Poland emerges as a great power. Religion begins by offering magical aid to harassed and bewildered men; it culminates by giving to a people that unity of morals and belief which seems so favorable to statesmanship and art; it ends by fighting suicidally in the lost cause of the past. For as knowledge grows or alters continually, it clashes with mythology and theology, which change with geological leisureliness.
The struggle of man against power is the struggle of memory against forgetting. When the Christian majority takes over this country, there will be no satanic churches, no more free distribution of pornography, no more talk of rights for homosexuals. After the Christian majority takes control, pluralism will be seen as immoral and evil, and the state will not permit anybody the right to practice evil.
Christians have an obligation, a mandate, a commission, a holy responsibility to reclaim the land for Jesus Christ—to have dominion in civil structures, just as in every other aspect of life and Godliness. But it is dominion we are after. Not just a voice. It is dominion we are after. Not just equal time. It is dominion we are after….
Thus, Christian politics has as its primary intent the conquest of the land—of men, families, institutions, bureaucracies, courts, and governments for the Kingdom of Christ. An exquisite pleasure had invaded my senses, something isolated, detached, with no suggestion of its origin…. Whence did it come? What did it mean?
How could I seize and apprehend it? From being apparent, it becomes manifest. From being manifest, it becomes brilliant. Brilliant, it affects others. Affecting others, they are changed by it. Changed by it, they are transformed. It is only he who is possessed of the most complete sincerity that can exist under heaven, who can transform. It is characteristic of the most entire sincerity to be able to foreknow.
Victory in your name, and in the name of your son, Je-sus. Help us to vanquish our foe, to defeat our enemy, to …, you know, to defeat evil. Take the field with us, Je-sus.
Joseph was worried when he found out that Mary was expecting a baby before their marriage had taken place. He wondered if he should put off the wedding altogether. Then an angel appeared to Joseph in a dream and said: When Joseph woke up, he did what the angel had told him to do and took Mary as his wife. At this time, the land where Mary and Joseph lived was part of the Roman Empire. The Roman Emperor Augustus wanted to have a list of all the people in the empire, to make sure they paid their taxes.
He ordered everyone to return to the town where their families originally came from, and enter their names in a register or census there. Mary and Joseph traveled a long way about 70 miles from Nazareth to Bethlehem, because that is where Joseph's family came from. Most people walked but some lucky people had a donkey to help carry the goods needed for the journey. Joseph and Mary traveled very slowly because Mary's baby was due to be born soon. When they reached Bethlehem they had problems finding somewhere to stay. So many people had come to register their names in the census, that every house was full and every bed was taken in all of the guest rooms.
The only place to stay that they could find was with the animals. People often kept animals in the house, especially at night, and used them like 'central heating'!
In those days it was the custom to wrap newborn babies tightly in a long cloth called 'swaddling clothes'. Jesus' bed was the manger that the animals ate their hay from. In the hills and fields outside Bethlehem, shepherds looked after their sheep through the long night. As the new day began, suddenly an angel appeared before them and the glory of God shone around them.
The shepherds were very, very scared, but the angel said, 'Don't be afraid. I have good news for you and everyone. Today in Bethlehem a Saviour has been born for you. You will find the baby lying in a manger. Then many more angels appeared, lighting up the sky. The shepherds heard them praising God singing: The baby Jesus was lying in a manger as they had been told. When they saw him, they told everyone what the angel had said and everyone who heard the story were astonished.
Then the shepherds returned to their sheep, praising God for sending his Son to be their Saviour.

When Jesus was born, a brand new bright star appeared in sky. Some Wise Men in faraway countries saw the star and guessed what it meant. They were very clever men that studied the stars and had read in very old writings that a new star would appear when a great king was born. They set out to find the new king and bring him gifts. The Wise Men followed the star towards the country of Judea and when they got to the capital called Jerusalem they began to ask people: Herod sent for the Wise Men to come to him. He told them to go on following the star until they had found the baby king.
