I knew a chap, now retired, who grew up in Berlin AND in Breslau/Wroclaw. And who told me that the purely German Breslau was just Propaganda. He was in command of Polish as it was important in the Breslau of those days, when your tremendous city apparently was mixed German-Polish

Nice, as long at least as you accept that your proud city in German language is BRESLAU and that to us, the Capital of Poland is WARSCHAU ---- while nobody in Switzerland supports German RECONQUISTA notions

Re: Recently moved to ZH

Well Wollishofener, I guess everyone in Poland is pretty aware of German heritage of some of our cities. The other thing is that there's no english form of the city name, so when we (Wroclawians) want to explain someone where we from it's usually the whole sentence "It's one of the biggest cities, located on the south-west. Used to be German city of Breslau etc..."

You seriously need to stop posting after a night on the sauce! Your tangents are bad enough when sober, but what the hell...

What about
WARSAW
WARSZAWA
WARSCHAU


The English name is awful, while the Polish one sounds nice
