WARSAW, Poland -- A national drama that embarrassed the Roman Catholic Church and roused Cold War memories ended in a spectacle yesterday when the new archbishop of Warsaw resigned before his Inauguration Mass after admitting that he collaborated with Communist secret police decades ago.

When I first arrived in Warsaw in the summer of 1990, the Poles on board the Lot Polish Airlines clapped as the aircraft touched down near the warehouse-like structure that was the Polish capital's international airport. The Poles on the Lot flight I took to Warsaw in October also clapped when we landed, a sign to me that in some ways, despite major political and economic shifts in recent years, Poland might not be such a different place after all. But as soon as I stepped into Warsaw's much modernized Port Lotniczy im. F. Chopina -- named for Polish composer Frederic Chopin, whose heart is entombed in a downtown church -- I knew that Poland had indeed changed.

In the summer of 2004, I was making my way from St. Petersburg, Russia, to Istanbul, Turkey, by bus and train. Traveling through Eastern Europe is an amazing experience. Everywhere you go, you are surrounded by evidence of ancient buildings and cultures. An unexpected destination during my travels was the graveyards across the region. The European style of caring for graveyards is to visit them frequently and adorn the graves with fresh flowers. In many ways, graveyards are beautiful, with engravings speaking of what the dearly departed meant to the family they left behind.

On Sept. 1, 1939, Jerzy Kajetanski, a 25-year-old graduate student at the Warsaw Academy of Fine Arts in Poland, was returning home by bus from a stay in the resort town of Swider when he suddenly came upon a bloodcurdling sight. "I saw a bombed-out house and a dead white horse in the roadway," Kajetanski later wrote in his journal. "That horse was the first casualty of war that I was to see." Hitler's armies had invaded Poland, an act that would unleash the most destructive conflict in history.
