I’m assuming you are in the US. Having gone through US public school, I can assure you that we never covered anything about Europe outside of Spain (when covering Christopher Columbus), England and occasionally Germany or France was mentioned. So I’m not surprised your coworker doesn’t know where Poland is. In at least the education I received, anything between Germany and the Great Wall of China, and the entire continent of Africa (besides stating slaves came from there) was not covered and you were on your own to learn about those parts of the world.
