Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said a Polish woman living in Germany told him she wants to move back to Poland because, as she says, it is dangerous in Bavaria.

Morawiecki made the remark during his speech in the parliament this week, where he related a conversation he had with a Polish woman who lives in Bavaria. The head of the Polish government met her during one of the military picnics, with the wPolityce.pl news outlet being the first to publish the recording of the conversation.

“I have been living in Bavaria for 10 years now, but I intend to return to Poland because Poland has changed so much and Germany is declining,” the Polish woman told Morawiecki. “In the minds of Germans, there’s a completely different image of Poland. Things are much better in our country than in Germany, and I happen to live in Bavaria.”

During the conversation, Morawiecki pointed out that Bavaria is one of the wealthiest states in Germany.

The Polish woman responded by saying: “Yes, but unfortunately they took in a lot of refugees. What’s happening in Bavaria right now is really awful.”

She then recounted how in 2015 she used to go to the main train station in Munich, where refugees were arriving, mainly young people from the Middle East, with few children and women.

According to the woman, since that time, the situation in Bavaria has deteriorated. There are so many migrants that she is afraid to go out after dark.

“Now, I don’t feel safe, I have to return home early. By 10:00 pm, I try to be home because later there are groups of migrants among whom I feel very unsafe,” she said.

“I invite you to Poland, it’s very safe in Poland,” replied the head of the government.

“I am actually planning to move back to Poland,” said the Polish woman.
