Hi John! glad to see you.
Hi group! (my Google translate - gang!)
4 important (in my opinion) articles that appeared in a respectable Russian magazine "Diaspory", № 4, 2005, are in the public domain.
I transferred the file in pdf format to Word, correct errors.
As we agreed earlier, now and in future I'm not going translate to English language - I do it badly, and takes a very long time. Even for preparation of these articles took me the whole day.
A brief summary.
1. Translated article by Professor Eva Nowicka of Warsaw University: "The many aspects of Polish identity."
article, I just "baldel" (enjoyed). I caught myself thinking - I'm a Pole or Russian. How are you people living outside Poland, identify their Polishness.
Maybe this article napechatanoa still somewhere in Polish.
Recommend to anyone who is looking for not only the history of his family, but also Polish roots and identity.
2. Another article by Anna Zelinska - Ph.D., deputy director of the Institute of Slavic Studies, Warsaw "Poles in Slavic-Baltic borderlands."
As to the kind of relations between Poland and Lithuania, and a little bit - western Belarus and Latvia. Shows how to fade Polish colonies.
I recommend to all those who want to really understand how faded and fading Polish self-identity, especially in Lithuania. Russia (USSR) is completely irrelevant.
3. Article of polka (Soviet origin) Skreminska Ljubov, Ph.D., Department of Bishkek university "Polish diaspora in Kyrgyzstan"
Part of the information
is already laid out.
Interesting for those whose families could be in Kyrgyzstan, and more.
Read the phrase. It turns out that the worst of the NKVD head Nikolai Yezhov, once in power, began his bloody path 1936-38 years with "destruction of
Polish spies" - it was only two sentences: shooting (80%) and the camp for 15 years (20%). It was then removed to camps in Kyrgyzstan.
4. Irina Nikulina "From the history of Poles stay in Altai" (1864-1890 years).
The history of the expulsion of many Poles, after the suppression of the uprising.
All the best
Stan from M.
