I've posted this in one of noimmigrations threads. Thought it was an interesting read.

Some natives fled to live an almost mercenary life, fighting on the continent in the many wars which convulsed Europe at that time. However, a peaceful army of farmers, traders and what became skilled town planners, formed their very own Diaspora on the fringes of the Baltic Sea, settling in Lithuania, Germany and Eastern Prussia, mainly in regions now within Polish borders.

Aberdeen has around 25,000 Polish people now. We are host to many other nations people. I like such diversity. Every race brings sth new to the table and offers choice.
