Yes, some Germans were invited between XII and XIV century to settle down in different parts of Poland, including Pomerania.
Invited by whom? :)
Okay....it seems I have to repost it:
Just a hint...this long list during the centuries starts with one
Swantopolk II. (1195-1266)
The founder of the german settlement!
When you read that list you will see no polish names who could have "invited" Germans....maybe Johann Ferber? The mayor of Danzig till 1501? But he was German....hmm....
When you really want to refute the fact that Danzig had been always a german city full of german people you can surely post a list of famous polish Danziger living and working in polish Danzig, right?
Just in case you think this list biased by them mean Germans...there is a similiar, albeit much shorter list in the english Wiki:
The first mention of a non-German is from 1620...
Bogusław Radziwiłł, 1620, Prince of Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, Reichsfürst of the HRE, governor of Ducal Prussia
Spike, your claim of Danzig for Poland is nothing else but what happened during the partitions to Poles. Outside political decisions didn't made proud Poles now suddenly overnight to proud Germans, Russians or Austrians either.
Unless you encounter German tourists. You'll surely recognize them 'cause they're fat and smell of sauerkraut :-P
Well...losing the countenance so quickly? :)
