A new item from the literature section: courtesy of Mr
Ryszard Hubisz we scanned a German publication dated late 1939: "Statistiches
Gemeindeverzeichnis bisherigen polnischen Staates..." (pdf,
approx. 170 MB!).
Its full title: "Statistical catalogue of ethnic communities in the former
Polish state, as per the demarkation line between German-Soviet state
interests established on 28th September 1939"
A fairly substantial publication, approx. 240 pages long (with three maps).
The bulk contains detailed tables on ethnic groups living across Poland. The
book was published by Publikationsstelle Berlin-Dahlem, some information on
their history can be found - in German - in wikipedia, and more details in two
