I would not mind to delete Roosevelt name from Polish streets, too.

By the way, reading about Foibe killing I found something interesting. As one of the Wiki translated to languages appears Venetian. That language, along Polish, Sorbian, Kashubian and only Germanic lang. Vilamovian uses letter "Ł" and seems to be only Romance one having such a character in its alphabet.

In two words: for his full of ignorance, close "friendship" to Stalin. Double faced playing with Polish minority living and voting for him in the USA. And finally for his treason committed against Poland.

Yes, for Americans he may be a hero and great president, for us, none of our streets is cheap enough to be named after him. However, some still are, I am afraid.

What about streets of German people? Are there any?
No offense intended, just curious.

And its pronounciation is similar to the Polish one.

Possibly because he left the Poles & Czechs to their fate with the commies.

I watched a documentary last night about the last 10 days of WWII. The Western Allies could've reached Prague long before the commies did but Roosevelt ordered Patton to concentrate on Germany. Denmark was only saved from the commies by 6-8 hours after Churchill ordered Montgomery to take NW Germany by any means and cut off the advancing Red Army. The RA had already taken Rostock and were advancing towards Lubeck.

In Budapest, Hungary, there was a square named by him, and the name was changed last year.

What's wrong with a street named after a German in Poland? German not necessarily means nazi.

As I wrote, nothing!
I was just asking if there are such streets?
It is known that many many Germans were banished from Czechoslovakia and Poland after the war.

I only know Karl Marx (ulica Karola Marksa) in Gliwice and saw somewhere Karl Liebkneht, not sure where. I think, Angela Merkel will have her street in Poland some day, particularly because quite a fraction of Polish blood is present in her veins.

That's now Széchenyi István tér (square)? Interesting, that's a major square in Budapest; we parked there in 1996. My map still shows Roosevelt though.
