A small treat, found in the depths of the internet. It's a commercial for Polski Fiat 508 from 1937, starring Adam Aston, one of the most popular Polish singers of the 30s. He and his friends are performing a song about their best friend: the car . Now, that's the sort of sentiment that modern Poles would immediately recognize. It's soothing to know that some things simply don't change, isn't it?

Związek Strzelecki "Strzelec" (Riflemen's Association "Rifleman") was a Polish paramilitary cultural and educational organization created in 1910 in Lwów as a legal front of Związek Walki Czynnej, and revived in Poland in 1991.

An important part of the Association's mission was training young Poles in military skills. Before World War I, the Riflemen's Association provided military training to over 8,000 people, and its trainees subsequently formed an important part of the Polish Legions in World War I. Prominent members and leaders of the Riflemen's Association included Józef Piłsudski, Henryk Dobrzański, Kazimierz Sosnkowski, Edward Rydz-Śmigły, Władysław Sikorski, Marian Kukiel, Walery Sławek, Julian Stachiewicz, Aleksander Prystor and Włodzimierz Tetmajer.

The Riflemen's Association was revived in Poland in 1991, after the fall of communism.


Przemysl, 1929

After the coup d'état in 1926, when to power came nationalists led by Antanas Smetona (who formed authoritarian and nationalistic government, by some described also as fascist) it was decided to forbade Lithuanians attend Polish schools. Children from mixed families should also attend Lithuanian schools. Many Poles in Lithuania in passports were signed as Lithuanians (they had to change their non-Lithuanian names), therefore they also were forced to attend Lithuanian schools, since then the number of schools gradually decreased to 9 in 1940. In 1936 a new law was passed that allowed a student to attend Polish school only if both parents were Poles. Antanas Smetona strove to adapt the concepts of Italian fascism to Lithuanian conditions. Dictatorial regime used terror to suppress the left-wing trade unions, and other workers’ organizations. He advocated the idea of national unity, class cooperation, and the "people’s leader", which was to be based on a national elite. During the late years of his dictatorship, he attempted to turn Lithuania into a protectorate of Nazi Germany. In 1940, under conditions of a growing popular movement, Antanas Smetona fled to Germany.

Polish students


According to official census of 1923, there were 65,600 Poles living in the Kaunas region (unofficially the number was much higher).

Reaction to Lithuanian nationalism were protests in Polish cities...

Hence, in the interwar period, the Polish minority was persecuted by the administration of independent Lithuania. The Lithuanian census of 1923 showed that Poles constituted 65,600 Lithuania inhabitants (3.2% of total population). In interwar Lithuania, people declaring Polish ethnicity were officially described as Polonized Lithuanians who merely needed to be re-Lithuanized, Polish-owned land was confistacted, and Polish religious services, schools, publications, and voting rights were restricted. After the establishment of Valdemaras regime in 1926, Polish schools were closed, many Poles were incarcerated, and Polish newspapers were placed under strict censorship.

Not to make it totally one-sided, one has to admit that while minority persecution is never a good idea, post WW1 Poland gave Lithuania a few convincing reasons to be angry.

Anyway, to put it in context for the non-Polish users, from the Polish annexation of Vilnius in 1922 right until 1938, the relations between Poland and Lithuania were nearly non-existent: the border was sealed, diplomatic relations suspended, and occasional shoot-outs between border guards would sometimes result in casualties. It was a bit like the Korean demilitarized zone, really. Certainly not the most glorious period in the history of our two nations.
