I beg to differ. Most Polish Jews don't call themselves Polish Jews. It's not that they all have disappeared. It's that they call themselves Jewish instead of Polish Jewish. I say this based on meeting many Jewish people who would later quietly tell me that they were Polish Jewish, when people would not be around and we would start talking in Polish together or talking about common dishes we love or the "Ch" sound in our tongues ; With me, it's always been a little secret that they know and eventually share with me once they get to know me and see I'm not some crazy person.

Which I am further confused by - of all places in the world - lye about it in Chicago. I would admit to being Polish long before being Jewish. I am glad to see the use of Booshie is a word many of us used - despite it not really being a word.Then the aunt and uncle who took me in died in a fire.
