Actually Lithuanians had a very little role in this with Ukrainians being the ones most important, and in fact signing alliance with Polish forces.Unfortunetely they were sort of betreyed-Poland simply should go further against Bolsheviks then it did.? You mention the recreation of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. The Lithuanians didn't seem very keen on this.
That's the point!Was Curzon ever even asked to delineate Byelorussian and Ukrainian states? Tell me more....
Today Wilno and Wilenszczyzna region are still 71 percent Polish. Good job Wilnianie.Poles succeed in Lithuania
In yesterday’s European Parliament elections in Lithuania, Poles managed to get enough votes to secure a representative for European Parliament.
The Electoral Action of Poles in Lithuania (EAPL) gathered 8,46 percent of votes and won victory in four districts: Vilnius (71 percent of votes), Salcininkai (80,6 percent), Trakai (31,38 percent), Svencionys (22,42 percent).
Waldemar Tomaszewski, the head of the EAPL, will be the first Pole in Lithuanian history to become a member of European Parliament.
“It is a superb result!” commented Tomaszewski, who admitted that the party owes a part of its success to a low voter turnout.
“While in the EP I’m going to focus on three main issues: energy, human rights, including the rights of minorities, and ideology, i.e. spreading Christian values,” added the politician, describing his political program. (mg/mmj)
chauvinism has no nationality. It never dies in Poland, Italy, Nigeria, USA, Russia ect. Has it died in Germany?Jan-Hendrik wrote:But how much percent of the voters went voting in those districts?
It seems polish national chauvinism will never die out...

I was a bit wrong - Polish list gained 71 percent of votes only in the Vilnius District, which is composed of areas around Vilnius but without the city itself.Today Wilno and Wilenszczyzna region are still 71 percent Polish.
"(...) Namier was seen as one of the biggest enemies of the newly independent Polish state in the British political environment. He falsified the earlier proposed Curzon line by detaching the city of Lwów from Poland with a version called Curzon Line "A". It was sent to Soviet diplomatic representatives for acceptance. The earlier compromised version of Curzon line which was debated at the Spa Conference was renamed Curzon Line "B". (...)"
Sorry - not 1600 but around 1650 (after the Thirty Years' War and the depopulation of Pomerania caused by it).language boundaries around year 1600:
After 1650 and before 1850.That "German strip" was created later - after 1600 and before 1850.
Most likely between the First Partition of Poland and 1850.That "German strip" was created later - after 1650 and before 1850.
