Text of the author's introduction:
"Since years I have tried to work in the "Prussian Yearbooks" for a better understanding of the Polish question among the German people. Finally the real events have have set the ball rolling and wide circles of the public started to turn their attention to the complex problem. I considered it as appropriatze, therefore, to compile the thesis which, up to now, I have published in the "Political Correspondences" of the "Prussian Yearbooks" into a general view, to put them in the context of the current developments and to offer them to the public in form of a small booklet."
Please note: The original booklet re-digitized here was printed in German FRAKTURA characters!
