The History of Poland
This is a short History of Poland leading up to the outbreak of the Second World War.
The Rise To Power
Slav Origins
Most Scholars agree that the original Slav homeland lay within the boundaries of modern Poland in the Odra (Oder) and Wisla (Vistula) basins. The Slavs subsequently expanded into territories to the east, south and west and became increasingly differentiated until, by AD 800, three main geographical and linguistic divisions had arisen; the East Slavs inhabiting a large part of European Russia, the South Slavs who settled in the Balkan Peninsula, and the West Slavs who settled in what is now Poland, Czechoslovakia and East Germany. The West Slavs suffered different fates; the Lusatians and Veleti were absorbed by German expansion, the Czechs and Moravians merged to form the nucleus of the Czech Kingdom, whilst the Slovaks became part of the kingdom of Hungary. The remaining tribes, including the Polanie, Wislanie, Pomorzanie and the Mazovians, joined together (in time) to form the Polish State.
Foundation - 966-1138
The Polish Baptism of 966 came about as a result of the concerns of Mieszko, or Mieczyslaw I, chief of the Polanie, raised by the establishment of the German Empire of Otto I (962). He decided to marry Dobrawa, the daughter of Boleslaw I of Bohemia, and accepted Christianity for himself and his people, thus preserving their independence. In 1000, at the Congress of Gniezno an independent Polish Church organisation was set up with the agreement of Otto III, but formed according to the Czech, rather than German, system. Thus the Polish Church could turn directly to Rome, and the Pope, for protection and would not fall under the influence of the Germans.

Home Study Abroad Poland The Black Death which affected most parts of Europe from 1347 to 1351 did not come to Poland. Under the Jagiellon dynasty, Poland forged an alliance with its neighbor Lithuania. A golden age ensued in the 16th century after the Lublin Union, which gave birth to the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. The citizens of Poland took pride in their ancient freedoms and Sejm parliamentary system, with the szlachta nobility enjoying the most benefits. Since that time Poles have regarded freedom as their most important value. Poles often call themselves the nation of the free people. In the mid-17th century a Swedish invasion rolled through the country in the turbulent time known as "The Deluge" (potop). Numerous wars against the Ottoman Empire, Russia, Cossacks, Transylvania and Brandenburg-Prussia ultimately came to an end in 1699. During the following 80 years, the waning of the central government and deadlock of the institutions weakened the nation, leading to anarchistic tendencies and a growing dependency on Russia. This eventually led to the 'Liberum Veto', which allowed for any member of parliament to break off the Sejm's proceedings during the session, effectively paralyzing any attempt at reform. Russian tsars took advantage of this unique political vulnerability by offering money to Parliamentary traitors, who in turn would consistently and subversively block necessary reforms and new solutions. The Enlightenment in Poland fostered a growing national movement to repair the state, resulting in the first modern written constitution in Europe, the Constitution of May 3 in 1791. The process of reforms ceased with the three partitions of Poland between Russia, Prussia, and Austria in 1772, 1793 and 1795 which ultimately dissolved the country. Poles resented their shrinking freedoms and several times rebelled against their oppressors.

Poland's written history begins with the reign of Mieszko I, who accepted Christianity for himself and his kingdom in AD 966. The Polish state reached its zenith under the Jagiellonian dynasty in the years following the union with Lithuania in 1386 and the subsequent defeat of the Teutonic Knights at Grunwald in 1410. The monarchy survived many upheavals but eventually went into a decline which ended with the final partition of Poland by Prussia, Russia, and Austria in 1795. However, the Poles were largely responsible for achieving their own independence in 1918. Authoritarian rule predominated for most of the period before World War II. In April 1943, the Soviet Union broke relations with the Polish government­in­exile, after the German military announced that they had discovered mass graves of murdered Polish army officers at Katyn, in the U.S.S.R. (The Soviets claimed that the Poles had insulted them by requesting that the Red Cross investigate these reports.) In July 1944, the Soviet Red Army entered Poland and established a communist­controlled "Polish Committee of National Liberation" at Lublin. Resistance against the Nazis in Warsaw, including uprisings by Jews in the Warsaw ghetto and by the Polish underground, was brutally suppressed. As the Germans retreated in January 1945, they leveled the city.

The Alerts
To Whom It May Concern: I am writing regarding the January 27, 2005 “World Leaders Gather for Auschwitz Ceremony” article written by Craig S. Smith. The article contains a misleading and unsubstantiated statement regarding what the commemoration “means” for Poland.
The author claims that “for Poland … it is … part of a gradual recognition of (its) complicity in the killing.” The author is unable to support his assertion with any references to events, statements or sentiments expressed by any Polish person because this is, in fact, a false representation of the national sentiment. Further, the Poles' lack of such “recognition of complicity” is perfectly understandable given that, overwhelmingly, they were not complicit collaborators but rather the victims of Nazi Germany's murderous system.
Current “meaning” of the commemoration
Smith's claim that Poles view the commemoration as an opportunity for a “gradual recognition of their complicity in the killing” is flat-out wrong, and completely unsubstantiated by any references to events, statements or sentiments. President Aleksander Kwasniewski, the only Pole mentioned in the article, is noted only for his “staunch support for the war in Iraq” and his meeting with Vice President Cheney. As a careful follower of the Polish political scene and a daily reader of the two mainstream Polish newspapers (Gazeta Wyborcza, Rzeczpospolita) and several Internet forums - I have not found any evidence supporting Mr. Smith's statements. Most editorial comments revolve around the evils of the importance of clarifying to the world that these were not “Polish concentration camps” and that the Holocaust was a genocide perpetrated by Nazi Germany. The author falsely portrays the commemoration's meaning to the Poles while presenting a historical falsehood as a given fact.

Poland History
- History of Poland - History of Poland Early history of Poland (966-1385) In 1226, Konrad I of Masovia invited the Teutonic Knights to Poland to help him fight the pagan Prussians on the border of his lands. After exterminating the Prussians, the Knights turned their attention to Poland and Lithuania, waging war with them for most of the 14th and 15th centuries. In the middle of 14th century Poland started to expand to the East and annexed Galich Rus'. The regional division ended when W³adys³aw the Elbow-high united the various principalities of Poland. His son Kazimierz the Great, the last of the Piast dynasty, considerably strengthened the country's position in both foreign and domestic affairs. Before his death in 1370, the sonless king arranged for his nephew, the Andegawen Louis of Hungary, to inherit the throne. In 1385, the Union of Krewo was signed between Louis' daughter Jadwiga and the Lithuanian Grand Duke Jogaila (later known as W³adys³aw II Jagie³³o), beginning the Polish-Lithuanian Union and strengthening both nations in their shared opposition to the Teutonic Knights and the growing threat of Muscovy. The Jagiellon Era (1385-1572) The personal union with the Grand Duchy of Lithuania to the North-East, paved the way for the extension of Polish power far to the East and the creation (by the Union of Lublin in 1569), of a unified Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth (Rzeczpospolita), stretching from the Baltic Sea and the Carpathians mountains, to present-day Belarus and Western and Central Ukraine (which earlier had been Kievan Rus' principalities).

In the Shadow of the Polish Eagle : The Poles, the Holocaust and Beyond Book Description The behavior of many Poles towards the Jewish population during the Nazi occupation of Poland has always been a controversial issue. Although the Poles are supposed not to have collaborated with the invaders, there is evidence to show that in respect of the Jewish population, the behavior of many Poles, including members of the underground, was far from exemplary. Poland is also the only European country where Jews were being murdered after the end of the war and where strong anti-Semitic tendencies are still present. This book analyzes this question in an historical context and attempts to offer an explanation for the phenomenon of Polish anti-Semitism during and after the end of the war. The work is based on recently uncovered documents as well as on personal accounts of witnesses to the events during the war.

About the Author
After graffiti gangs had broken into the train yards where the subway cars were housed and sprayed the outer shells of the trains, the overseer of trains noted that it was fortunate the insides had been untouched because all of the doors were locked. However, during the day, while the trains were running, the insides were sprayed as well, causing him to say, “The public has only itself to blame…. People must see them do it, but they turn a blind eye. Everyone is guilty.” (McClune, 1996). Poland has had a similar history and corresponding similar problems. However, a recent study found that Polish youth expect to participate in civic affairs in much greater numbers in the future than in the Czech Republic, a finding that seems to confirm that the Poles have taken many positive steps since 1989 to raise the level of social capital in their society. Therefore, after discussing the historical background of the Czech lands and the problems facing their society, this paper will look at those steps taken by Poland, compare them to those of the Czech Republic, and then make recommendations so the Czechs can increase their level of social capital in the future—a future that may depend on it. First, though, we need to give a brief history of the Czech lands.
