Schneidemühl, Refugee Camp, German Refugees (c. 1920-25)

Abstract

After the Treaty of Versailles in 1919, Germany ceded parts of the provinces of Posen and Western Prussia to Poland. In 1922, the capital of the new  boundary region Westpreußen-Posen was moved west, to Schneidemühl (today: Piła). Many German refugees from the former German territories fled west were sheltered in the Schneidemühl refugee camp.
