Ken,
I had enough trouble trying to understand why Jews seek German citizenship (yes my late wife was a child of German Jews), but seeking Polish citizenship just boggles my mind.  I can at least credit Germany for trying to combat their anti-semitism and racism but I can find nothing good to say about Poland, particularly the government that is in power and a good portion of it's population.  Oh I understand the principle, her parents had a right to citizenship and it was taken away, etc.  But it really disappoints me that there isn't an equal desire to make aliyah and gain Israeli citizenship.  Just because you might not like the government and the society doesn't fit your desired mold is no reason.  By becoming a citizen you can help change those things more than you can from the outside.
