    Dutch journalist teaches Eurocrats a lesson

    Eurocrats like to reprimand and admonish Poland, although they often do not know the history or the current situation in our country. A Dutch journalist who has recently visited Poland comes to help. – Poles fought fiercely for their freedom and independence, so if politicians such as Sophie in ‘t Veld (a Dutch MEP – ed.) now come to teach them about freedom, it only works oppositely,” he assessed.

    European politicians should better understand the history of such countries as Poland – believes Wierd Duk, a journalist for the largest newspaper in the Netherlands – “De Telegraaf”.

     

    Wierd Duk is a journalist specializing in international issues. The journalist knows Russia very well, where he was a correspondent from 1992 to 2001. He worked as a correspondent in Germany (2001-2006).

     

    In 1999, the journalist received the prestigious Anna Vondeling Award in political journalism for his reports on the war in Chechnya.

     

    A journalist from “De Telegraaf” recently visited Krakow and was impressed by the “calmness and friendliness” of the Poles. Duka is fascinated by how Poles are attached to their history and freedom.

     

    “Poland as a country did not exist for decades, but it still lived in its language and the Catholic faith,” says the publicist.

     

    “Poles fought fiercely for their freedom and independence, so if politicians like Sophie in ‘t Veld (Dutch MEP – ed.) now come to teach them about freedom, it only works oppositely,” Duk believes.
