Poles

I learnt today that Chopin was Polish but he had a French father hence the surname.

Marie Curie was Polish, she married a Frenchman. We saw her house today.

Joseph Conrad was Polish although he wrote in English which was his third language.

Mila 18, the title of Leon Uris' novel, is a real place that I visited today.

How's that?
