Richard M. Nixon was one of the most controversial and divisive men ever to occupy the White House. But love him or hate him, he made history by becoming the first sitting American president to visit Poland, in 1972.
It was not Nixon’s first visit to Poland. He had also visited the country as vice president in 1959. In both instances the stops were made after strategically important visits to the Soviet Union and were restricted to Warsaw.
