Stanislaw Kania was the Polish general secretary of the Communist party central committee.
"Kania is better then Vania" meant that a native Polish homebred apparatchik is better than a Russian "Vania" on the streets of Warsaw, which would include the recurrence of the Prague and Budapest Soviet oppressions.
However, today, I am convinced that "Yossi is better than Bassi*", just as "Kania is better than Vania." Lie and hypocrisy are better than foolishness and suicide.

This vital intelligence was immediately passed on to the White House, 10 Downing Street in London, the Elys6e Palace in Paris, and the Vatican (the latter because of the crucial role of the Polish-born Pope John Paul II).
There are grounds for reports that neither Kania nor Jaruzelski was briefed in advance on the police violence at Bydgoszcz; this supports the probability that the action was an independent provocation organized by the KGB.
Kania had painted a dismal picture of the situation, and it was clear to their visitors that he and Jaruzelski were at odds.

As the nineteenth century turned into the twentieth, the five children of Franciszka and Jan Slon, four brothers and their sister, decided to leave behind everything that was familiar and cross a vast ocean to restart their lives in a strange new land.
