This charming eight-minute video portrays 1,000 years of Polish history, and in effect captures the historical reasons for Poland’s sensitivity about its borders. In a nutshell: the tumultuous expansions and invasions through the middle-ages, Hilter and Stalin's secret pact to divide up Poland, occupation and resistance repeat throughout. The video brings some famous Polish paintings to life, shows a 17th century rendition of the traditional Polish Polonez dance, and includes some of Chopin’s most famous notes. Worth watching.
