Die „Polenbegeisterung“ in Deutschland

There are two moments in history when German enthusiasm for Poland was particularly manifest and these have left their mark until the present day.

The first is the wave of help and support for Solidarność after 1981. The second is much less well known; German support for the Polish people after the failed uprising in November 1831. Today this event is almost unknown throughout Europe and it is still a cause of amazement.
