Polish Spy on To Tell the Truth

A Polish Spy appeared on the TV game show "To Tell the Truth" in 1963. You can watch the entire episode here

Many Polonians will especially appreciate what Tom Poston says at four minutes forty seconds into the video. 

Thank you to Chris Jaworski for sending this in. "Looking Down a Mineshaft," Chris' post about his Polish-American father, can be read here.

Chris is a hardcore marathoner, recently running one hundred hours straight through the mountains of Vermont. One of Chris' articles about his impressive running career can be found here


  1. To be fair this guy was Jewish

    1. You can tell based on that bag alone? Amazing!

      (could not resist)

    2. Yes he was Jewish. And Polish at the same time. I wonder if he was ever a communist or simply an idealist mislead by propaganda. And I hope that he became a good American.
      Anyway, his defection caused a lot of damage to communist inteligence service.


Bieganski the Blog exists to further explore the themes of the book Bieganski the Brute Polak Stereotype, Its Role in Polish-Jewish Relations and American Popular Culture.
These themes include the false and damaging stereotype of Poles as brutes who are uniquely hateful and responsible for atrocity, and this stereotype's use in distorting WW II history and all accounts of atrocity.
