Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
A major reason why Poland has no nuclear power is that the Party got rid of two thirds of the nuclear power institute back in 1968. One third were fired for being of Jewish origin, another third either resigned in protest or were fired for protesting. That set back the program by a good decade, and by the time they were about to construct a plant, Chernobyl hit, public pressure delayed things and it eventually got abandoned.
