Actually, one thing that I meant to convey was buried in the first Skiedweza update.Originally Posted by coz1
The Poles in Prussia have mostly killed themselves off. Okay, well... I suppose I could have let them revolt and create their independent Poland. So in saying it's their fault, I guess I'm acting like the Japanese before World War II, re: their war in China. Yes, I could always have given up and gone home, leaving Poland to be free. That's just not the mentality of the 19th Century, though!
There are only 3 provinces -- Gniezno, Posen, and Bromberg -- where Poles still constitute a majority. The rest of Prussian Poland is majority German now, including Cieszyn, where the Skiedweza homestead is. If I recall correctly, they had majorities in 7-10 provinces at one time.
