Poland’s Territorial Changes 1635-Present – Life, Death & Rebirth


 

Poland has not been one of Europe’s luckiest countries.

It’s gone from being the largest country in Europe to being wiped off the map, not once but several times. These territorial shifts had a profound impact on Poland’s political and social composition. It is now a century after Poland was restored but differences persist between those parts that were ruled by Germans and those that were part of Austria or Russia. The European powers did not dismember Poland at once. They went through three rounds of partition between 1772 and 1795. Then Napoleon’s France revived it as a puppet state, the Duchy of Warsaw, in 1807. The Congress of Vienna, which withdrew the map of Europe after Napoleon’s defeat, restored Poland in 1815, but it was gradually absorbed by Russia in the years thereafter. Poland was restored again after World War I. But the Soviets  at the end of World War II to claimed Poland’s Eastern Borderlands, which were added to the Belarusian, Lithuanian and Ukrainian Soviet republics. Poland was compensated with territories in the west, taken from the defeated Germans. Around one million Poles were transferred from the Russian borderlands to these “Recovered Territories” in the west.

The map below traces the history of Poland’s borders from 1635 right through to the present day.

Watch as the borders shrink from their peak during the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth to the partitions of Poland at the end of the 18th century to the massive shift west during the 20th.

    This is a very interesting resource.
    To stop the progression in order to think about the changes, use the ‘Snipping Tool’.
    Bring it up and click on ‘New’ to stop the map.
    Minimize the pop-up to continue.
    Then, Maximize and click on ‘New’, again to stop.

    There are other ways, but this works.
