Rare is the child that hasn't been guilt-tripped to finish their dinner by their parents, by being told that kids in some other country are starving. (We know the proper response is "Send it to them! They won't eat it either.) What was that other country for you?
When I was growing up in Buffalo, New York in the early 1970s, it was Poland. Yes, "Finish your meal! There's starving kids in Poland!" My peers all seemed to hear "India" and "Africa" -- yeah, I know Africa isn't a country -- but I got a then-communist country in Eastern Europe. Maybe it's a Jewish shetl thing.
