Btw, the number of ethnic Poles in East Prussia (part of the German state) before WW2 was officially estimated at ~400,000 (and that is after settling around 300,000 German colonists in the eastern provinces of Prussia by Frederick the Great in the 18th century and Bismarck's Kulturkampf policy in the 19th century).

East Prussian census of 1910


PS. Silesian census of 1910 (based on German figures, red and brown areas had Polish majority). In German census of 1925, 151.200 people in German part of Oberschlesien still declared Polish as their mother tongue (384.600 spoke both Polish and German). Bear in mind that German censuses haven't been fully unbiased

The original, old-Prussian population in Masuria was almost fully exterminated by Teutonic Knights during the major Prussian rebellion of 1261–83. By the years 1278–1283 the eradication of the local culture was complete, even though its remnants survived in the forest for decades to come. After the Order's acquisition of the area, Poles began to settle in the south-east part of the conquered region. German, French, Flemish, Danish, Dutch, and Norwegian colonists entered the area shortly afterward. The number of Polish settlers grew significantly again in the beginning of 15th century, especially after the first and the second treaties of Thorn, in 1411 and 1466 respectively, following the Thirteen Years' War and the final defeat of the order.

the link for the 1910 Silesian census in a Polish document showing the major cities of the area to be German majority vs the rural eastern lands with less dense populations of Poles. If the point was that Silesia was mostly Polish, the information/interpretation of the map wasn't without its own bias.

It looked really strange, rather like a city gates than a church

Inspiration of Neo Romanesque style.
Herzog-Albrecht-Gedächtniskirche was built in 1911-1913.Reminds me..
Herz-Jesu-Kirche in Szczecin built in 1913-1919 (protestant church before WW2).
