Hania, I think this subject has been covered before. But from
what I understand, I think you should compare inter-war Poland with a
poor country now, rather than the US or Europe. Remember it was
basically rebuilding a country from scratch, and since Polish teaching had
been forbidden in many parts of the country, there was certainly a lack

continue the comparison with, for example, an African country now, children
were expected to help on farms. Education was a luxury.
