The Polish Question at the End of the First World War

Page Contents >

Department of International History public lecture

Date: Thursday 28 October 2010
Time: 7-9pm 
Venue:  Wolfson Theatre, New Academic Building
Speaker: Professor Anita J Prazmowska

When the First World War broke out many assumed that it would inevitably lead to the reemergence of a Polish state. As the war drew to an end the battle for Poland commenced on several fronts, both diplomatic and military. In the end, an independent Polish state would bear the mark of the way Poland reemerged, placing the importance
of nationalism above the need to build a modern democratic state.

Anita J Prazmowska is professor of international history at LSE. She is the author of a number of monographs on Poland's place in European politics.
