and the population was mainly ...% ???
I wonder who needs to get over "it"! Is it still to raw for you? To insecure
stop projecting your feelings .....who flipped over a picture ?
From Germanic to Germans during 2000 years! Danzig is polish
Those theories from 30' are still about ? How do you determinate that people living in those lands were Germanic by helmets or by buttons ?Hell, then some future archaeologists will come to the conclusion then Poland were populated by Americans, taken amount of jeans buttons !
What-more Gdansk was founded by polish prince Mieszko as a means of securing HIS harbor on the Baltic Sea! So, any Germanic would be just newcomers or immigrants in the city !
I leave the rest of it to your imagination.
Well, thats what you do, talking about history, as for links .....you can find anything really on the INTERNET and links are in no way gospel or kernel of the truth !
What I try to say, everybody can discus history, in the same way everybody can discus illnesses, but when need arise, you turn to professionals to keep you in the right !
In fact the simple Prussian folks suffered a lot because of the political shifts, and it can't be denied.
Yeah, soviet regime in Poland liked to divide people, if in place was a real polish government I dare say that many simple folks
would be allowed to stay !
Specially in the east Prussia !
Gdansk after WWII:
the old royal city(unanswerable to the King of Poland in case somebody harbor any doubts ):
One more thing about those lands.
I personally know an family (wont give their name for a obvious reason)was living continuously there, before as Germanic knights, latter as Polish nobles, and now as Poles.
I know about one family (I'm sorry that at the time I did not investigate), but I suspect that there is many more.
That about individuals fate and choices, when it comes to country's then everything is pretty straightforward, Poland holds moral rights to those lands and that is that !
