Germans, Polish on war over nude sun bathing at common beach

London, July 31 (ANI): A resort on the Usedom beach on the German-Polish border has sparked fighting between the residents of the two sides, after the removal of a fence separating them.

While Germans want to keep their clothes off on the beach, Polish sun-lovers prefer to cover up and keep their modesty.

A website report says that the liberal German’’s are outraged by their Polish neighbour’’s and their conservative ways.

The report even says that they have decided to hang on to their freedom by simply refusing to cover up their body.

“It’’s a nudist beach. It’’s terrible, that the Poles come over dressed and stare,” the Daily Star quoted 44-year-old naked beach-goer Elke Bernholz as saying.

Fellow German nudie Ines Muller, 46, added: “You feel like an ape in a zoo. The Poles come with their binoculars, stare and swear.”

Polish people, however, think that the proud German’’s have no shame at all.

“It’’s horrible. We would never bathe naked - we are Catholic,” said Anja, 28, from Poland.

Concerned authorities are planning to end the war between the two sides by placing signboards in both languages that will clearly explain which areas are naked, and which are those where private parts should be strictly covered up. (ANI)
