Re: Peace between Axis and Allies

Szczecin was part of Poland, as Shmeiker mentioned, already before 985. In fact Szczecin became part of Poland around year 970 - together with the rest of Pomerania: Early expansion of Poland from 940 to 999: http://postimg.org/image/rr79bdy1r/ http://s27.postimg.org/knzdvrsmb/Early_expansion.png Si...

Re: Largest Post World War One Polish Battle

Regarding discussion from previous pages (mostly German propaganda rants by Opa and his kind): It seems that German propaganda started to count Kashubs and Mazurs as groups distinct from Poles only after 1850: Territories with Polish majority in 1847: Thin red line is the border between Prussian and...

language boundaries around year 1600: Sorry - not 1600 but around 1650 (after the Thirty Years' War and the depopulation of Pomerania caused by it). That "German strip" was created later - after 1600 and before 1850. After 1650 and before 1850. ============================================ Edit: And...

Re: Curzon and Poland

Germans started to divide Poles into "Poles proper", "Kashubs", "Mazurs" and "Silesians" relatively late - after 1850. Here is a Prussian map from year 1847, which doesn't do this - it has no such groups, only "Polacken" everywhere: Red line is border between Prussian and Russian partition zones in ...

And here the results of the Silesian plebiscite as well as statistics on Polish-speaking (first language) population: A relatively large part of Upper Silesian Poles voted for Germany rather than for Poland in that 1921 plebiscite: http://s14.postimg.org/nrkdssrch/1921_Plebiscyt_B.png 1921_Plebiscyt...
