. She's a fine lady, struggling for decency and justice.
Isn't she kind of hypocritical claiming she is an hurt expelled person ? She didn't lose anything, she didn't had any home or possesions in Poland, nor ware her parents living in Poland.Her father was just posted in military unit occupying Poland and his girlfriend visited him there.
So her title of an expelled person is kind of fake.
Danzig was 98% German, and so since many centuries--those Polish Ultranationalists had no legitimate business there in 1939.
Good luck Hitler saved you from the terror of subhuman aggression !
Gdansk wasn't Polish btw in 1939 so you are lacking any historical knowledge.
As to Polish population post WW1:
http://raven.cc.ku.edu/~eceurope/hist55 ... 11pic2.jpg
Pomerania 1921-18 % of population is German
Poznan 1921-16 % of population is German
Upper Silesia 1921- 42 % of population is German
According to p.27 of the Reich Statistical Yearbook for 1941 the population of the territories annexed from Poland was as follows in June 1940:
Province Ostpreussen: 994,092.
Reichsgau Danzig-West-Preussen (not including Danzig): 1,487,452.
Reichsgau Wartheland: 4,538,922.
Prov. Schlesien: 2,603,550.
General Gouvernment: 12,107,000
According to p.6 of "Documents on the Expulsion of the Germans from East-Central Europe" Volume 1, (Bonn, 1954) the following was the German population of these areas when they were annexed from Poland in 1939:
Polish Territories attached to the Provinz of Ostpreussen: 31,000.
Polish Territories of the Reichsgau Danzig-Westpreussen: 210,000.
Polish Territories of the Reichsgau Wartheland: 230,000.
Eastern Upper Silesia: 238,000.
It is the population living there as settled population in the 20th that counts for the 20th century. And that population was German
Not in Poznan Silesia or Pomerania :)In fact Poznan got into German hands only in 1795 during since like 900 years or so(and actually was Polish again till 1815 after an uprising against Prussian rule).It was an autonomous Polish region till 1836 IIRC.Germans never possesed there a majority and Polish liberation movement was quite strong.Strong enough to wage a succesfull resistance to Germanisation efforts(Kulturkampf,Hakata) and wage a sucessfull uprising against Germany in which they regained freedom.
* Greater Poland Uprising 1794 - to help the Kościuszko Uprising
* Greater Poland Uprising 1806 - to help Napoleon I to liberate Poland and create the Duchy of Warsaw
* Greater Poland Uprising 1846 - part of the all-Polish 3-partition uprising
* Greater Poland Uprising 1848 - part of the Spring of Nations
* Greater Poland Uprising (1918-1919) - Poland regains independence after the World War I
In fact Poznan was in Prussian/German hands for 101 years and only 67 years of direct rule.
