A Brief History of Posen / Poznan


posen poznan kolejowej bahnhof


It is probably fair to state that the city of Posen has a fairly complicated history! It was until the end of the First World War part of Prussia, Germany; then as a result of the Treaty of Versailles in 1918, the city became Polish and was renamed Poznan; then again becoming part of Germany once again when Germany invaded Poland in 1939; and finally with the redrawing of the borders of Germany and Poland at the end of the Second World War it became part of Poland once more.
