Recovered territory : a German-Polish conflict over land and culture, 1919-89 / by Peter Polak-Springer

Publication | Library Call Number: DK4600.S468 P64 2015
Book cover

"Upper Silesia, one of Central Europe's most important industrial borderlands, was at the center of heated conflict between Germany and Poland and experienced annexations and border re-drawings in 1922, 1939, and 1945. In their interaction with--and mutual influence on--one another, political and cultural actors from both nations developed a transnational culture of territorial rivalry. Architecture, spaces of memory, films, museums, folklore, language policy, mass rallies, and archeological digs were some of the means they used to give the borderland a 'German'/'Polish' face. Representative of the wider politics of twentieth-century Europe, the situation in Upper Silesia played a critical role in the making of history's most violent and uprooting eras, 1939-1950"--Provided by publisher.
