There were three partitions of Poland: 1772, 1793 and 1795. Poland was
divided between Prussia, Austria, and Russia. Poland was not an
independent country until it was partially reunited under the
peace treaty after World War I. The borders were further redrawn
at the conclusion of World War II when Belarus was created.

Much of Poland that was under Russian domination between 1772
and World War I (Russian Poland) became Belarus. That's the
short of it. A reading of Poland's history will reveal the
background for the partitions.

Could someone explain the origin and geography of the phrase
"Russian Poland"?

Thank you, Carol Sicherman
