The main goal of the AK was the final uprising (Operation Tempest), ie. training of future officers and soldiers, collecting arms. Real resistance caused cruel German vengeance, eg. 100 Polish civilians killed for one German, so the AK preferred to act ouside pre-war Poland or in the East, where ethnic Poles consisted a minority.Xx236 (talk) 10:05, 16 November 2010 (UTC)
I've already replied to this on my talk page, but I am resposting here, since this is where the discussion should take place:
In regard to this edit :
The source, Timothy Snyder, specifically mentions Saugumas (Lithuanian police) rather than Lithuanian Defense Force, so we go with what the source says. The second source also references Saugumas. It may very well be true that AK fought against LDF as well (in fact, I'm pretty sure they did), but we need another source for that.
Likewise, the sources given talk about "collaborators", not "civilians". The one exception is of course the Dubinki massacre, itself a retaliatory action - but that's exactly what it is, an exception (as the source clearly states) rather than a rule - whereas the killing of Polish civilians by Saugumas was pretty much routine.
Hence I am going to restore original text.VolunteerMarek 23:32, 28 April 2012 (UTC)
Plan of section "Interaction with other groups"
Currently the section "Interaction with other groups" () has such subsections:
- Interaction with the Jewish community and Jewish resistance
- Interaction with the Lithuanian Nazi collaborators
- Interaction with Red Army and Soviet partisans
- Interaction with Ukrainian partisans and Nazi collaborators
Wouldn't it be better to shorten all those names to:
- Interaction with Jews
- Interaction with Lithuanians
- Interaction with Soviets
- Interaction with Ukrainians
Among other advantages, that would correct the, er, anomaly, of section "Interaction with the Lithuanian Nazi collaborators" starting with "Although Lithuanian and Polish resistance movements had in principle the same enemies – Nazi Germany and Soviet Union [...]"...
- Sounds good. Also, we may want to consider changing interactions to relations. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 00:52, 10 June 2012 (UTC)
Polish Righteous among the Nations
"Many members of Home Army was awarded Polish Righteous among the Nations medals after war: Władysław Bartoszewski, Zofia Kossak-Szczucka, Aleksander Kamiński, Jan Dobraczyński, Henryk Woliński, Mieczysław Fogg and others."
Small museum in Michigan - notable?
"Another Polish Home Army Museum is located outside Poland, in Orchard Lake, Michigan, United States." I removed this unreferenced mention due to problems with WP:V and by extension, notability.
