Poland

Po·land

 (pō′lənd)
A country of central Europe bordering on the Baltic Sea. Unified as a kingdom in the 11th century, it enjoyed a golden age under the Jagiello dynasty (1386-1572) and was a major power in the 15th and 16th centuries. National independence was lost in 1697 and it was carved up among other states in three partitions (1772, 1793, and 1795). Poland then disappeared as a geographic entity until its reconstitution as a republic in 1918. Its present boundaries date from the end of World War II. Warsaw is the capital and the largest city.

Dass das erinnerte Ich sich in seiner kindlichen Selbstwahrnehmung als ,,Pole" erlebte, ja seine ungluckliche Situation mit dieser Selbsteinordnung auf eine pointiert zugespitzte Weise zu benennen versuchte, hat wenig mit dem Land Polen und noch weniger mit den Polen selbst zu tun, sondern primar mit einer--historisch begrundeten--spezifischen Verwendungsweise des Wortes ,,Polen" in seinem Herkunftsmilieu.
