So that's how you spell "Chinese" in Russian.

Chic, I am pretty sure this is Polish. Russian uses the Cyrillic alphabet, while Polish uses the Latin one. AND, the producer's name has a letter we don't have, an L (lower case) with a slash through it. To my knowledge, that letter is unique to Polish.

In Polish, this letter is a W sound. The letter W has what in English is the V sound. I don't think the Polish alphabet has a V.

My mother's family had the name Kolodzie (with the slash through the L) While they now pronounce in Koh-lode-gee, in Poland it would have been Ko-wode-gee.

I've never figured out the Z in Polish. The Polish name Paderewski (like the pianist/President) is pronounced "Pad-er-rev-ski" not "Rew-ski" After all, the Russians are the Rew-skis.

Thanks, TONY. I admit my Rew-ski was rusty.
