Unless there is some reason (which I'm missing) a German passport is valid in Poland. You can get a job, buy a place and do almost anything.

In fact, it might even help you to get a job where 'native' German is required.

You can certainly loose a passport, but how can you loose the citizenship?

If you know Polish, you should google "obywatelstwo polskie" or the website of the Polish Home Office (MSWiA - Ministerstwo Spraw Wewnętrznych i Administracji)

thanks for trying. I dont know enough polish. I understand a bit. I didnt loose the passport physically. the passport and ID card expired and after years when I asked to prolong it. I was told that it could be that I have no right for the german citicenship. does anyone knows a lawyer in Poland who could help?

Eh, Elm, if u're a German citizen by birth then u should still hold German citizenship- unless otherwise!
Renew your German passport first if u're thinking of going for the Polish one.
The procedure of acquiring Polish Citizenship through your Parents, as many have found out on here, is quite long and complicated.
I'm sure u'll need tons and tons of documents to prove who your parents were.
There are many useful posts on here.
