I come from an older generation of Poles; pre-Nazi occupation. My great-great-great grandparents left Poland to escape the Nazis and immigrated to the U.S. They then moved to Detroit, Michigan, where jobs were everywhere at the time. But seeing as this was pre-WW2 America, Polish people were oppressed, so my ancestors fought hard to get a job. After that, previous generations of my family moved further South into the more rural areas of the United States.
Also, I am not JUST Polish. I am part Irish, Scottish, Welsh, and ALL AMERICAN!!
