Re: Geography mystery: Did any part of Polish Russia became German between 1880 and 1900? Specifically where? #poland #germany

Do you have the Polish passport? I would be very surprised to see a
Polish passport issued in 1914. Before the end of WWI, Poland was
divided up between the Austro-Hungarian Empire and the Russian Empire. 
The area around Gdansk/Danzig was under Prussia & Germany.
Poland was not a political entity, as a country, until after the First
World War!

My father's Polish passport, which I have, from 1920, and was issued to
him by the Polish Embassy in Paris, where he was living at the time.
