Porta Polonica: culture and history of Poles in Germany
August 2, 2016 6:03 AM   Subscribe

Porta Polonica is a site (courtesy of the Westphalian State Museum of Industrial Heritage) devoted to the culture and history of Poles in Germany. Some examples of the dozens of articles therein: an account of the novelist Witold Gombrowicz’s year in Berlin; a biography of the pioneering harpsichordist, pianist and composer Wanda Landowska; a piece about Jan Łukasiewicz, who devised what was once known as ‘Reverse Polish Notation’; a brief account of Rosa Luxemburg’s career; an article about star of stage & (silent) screen Pola Negri; and a piece about the letter ‘P’ worn by the millions of Polish forced labourers in wartime Germany.

That is a fascinating collection. As I am a person of Polish and German descent, this is particularly relevant to my interests but honestly, it's a really well done site in general. Well worth reading. Thank you, misteraitch!
