During geography lessons we talked about the subject of national, ethnic and religious minorities in Poland. In order to prepare for the topic we had made presentations on different apsects of the issue which were shown and disscussed in the lessons. We got to know a lot of noteworthy facts about these minorities, for instance how many people in our country profess a different religion, or where people from particular ethnic minorities live. We came to realize how important the knowledge of minorities is. It teaches us to be tolerant and full of respect to others. The presence of minorities fights against xenophobia and enriches the culture of our homeland. We should respect all people, even if they are different from us.
