    No. In order to really feel you are fighting for your homeland and for freedom, you must have experienced in your own life, with your own body and soul and in your own country to have been deprived of your homeland and your freedom. The majority of Americans haven't experienced that (take out different, but at least more direct experiences of the Afro-American's lack or loss of freedom) and therefore their feelings can't be the same as the ones of Pilecki. Even if they claim the same honorable motivations, it's not the same, by far not the same.

    Thanks for introducing such vivid details of a Polish freedom fighter's life story. That's a rare find and at least for me, a very welcome surpise.
