Many think of Poland in terms of the nation's part in serving example as the first nation to fall victim to the Nazi regime but Polish partisan resistance is especially worth noting. The Armia Krajowa or "Home Army" became a group consisting of nationalists and sympathizers who were instrumental in gathering intelligence, disrupting German occupation and leading the way for many more organized resisters to form. Even within the ghettos of Warsaw and Lodz the Polish fought against the atrocities that they themselves had so brutally fallen victim to. Aside from these forces, Polish scientists and technicians were key toward cracking the German Enigma code (by Marian Rejewski who worked in the wilderness outside of Warsaw) and disclosing results to British and French Allies helping to gain further Allied intelligence and accelerate the work of covert spies behind enemy borders. This would be a good place to discuss Polish resistance efforts and contributions of the nation toward the defeat of the Axis powers. It would be good to amass information about the heroic deeds of the country rather than dwell on the unfortunate nature of its crushing defeat beginning in October 1939.
