comment Were East Germans more acquiescent to Soviet domination than the rest of Eastern Europe and if so, why?
@DVK: that's why I wrote “at least”. I don't know much about the earlier events. You could probably extend this to the first recorded history of wars of Boleslaw Chrobry thousand years ago. The thing that matters for this question is that the supposed hatred between nations cannot be just a recent event.

I don't know about Hungary, but I wouldn't connect Russophobia in Poland only to the time of Soviet regime. In fact, Poland and Russia have very difficult relationship for at least 250 years now starting from partitions of Poland. Also, the basic motives behind the Solidarity movement in the '80 were not against Soviet Russia in general, but against massive mismanagement of economy by the Polish government at the time. This wouldn't be as likely to happen if politicians of the time were better economists, regardless of Soviet influence in Poland.
