   Greetings from Warsaw (perhaps "Wausau" or "War-sore" to you).  I go home tomorrow...Today was the Treblinka concentration camp and an ethnographic musuem.

OK GESTURE--I was told this is used here.

KOZAKIEWICZ GESTURE--An upturned fist, almost as if giving the finger.  The other hand is placed on this muscle.  Kozakiewicz was a Polish high jumper in the 1980 Moscow Olympics.  The Russian high jumper was favored by the crowd; Kozakiewicz won and gave this gesture back to the crowd.  OED?
