    Polish Highlanders are Germanic

    No one has a thread made for us wonderful Polish Highlanders. You may say "Polish are Slavic", not true, us Polish Highlanders are members who stayed in the mountains of Poland after Prussia broke up. We are strictly Germanic, and many were in the SS. Let's have a thread dedicated to Polish Highlanders, the last major Germanics to the east!

    Can you explain a bit more what you refer to as "Polish Highlanders?" If your family are indeed Prussians who were left behind in Poland after WW2, you would be better termed as Volksdeutsche, wouldn't you? Please tell us more about your family and where in Poland they lived/are living.
    Most people think as they are trained to think, and most people make a majority.

    For a good reason, since Poles are not Germanic. I don't have a special problem with Poles, but this is a forum for and about Germanics.

    The ethnic German minority in Poland were the so-called Volksdeutsche, who never called themselves "Polish Highlanders". Their culture and identity were completely German. Those border areas changed hands between Germany and Poland several times, but the people remained the same. (And this caused a lot of friction between Germans and Poles, as we all know.)

    If you are talking about the Gorals, who are the highlander folk in Poland, they're very much Slavic and Polish.

    We are strictly Germanic, and many were in the SS.
    The Volksdeutsche were in the SS, the Poles were not.

    Even if Polish Highlanders weren't a bunch of Poles, the Fenno-Swedes would still be the Germanic people who are geographically furthest to the east.

    I should have used the term there, still getting into finding out my family tree. I had not know to call them Volksdeutsche before. Sorry for that mixup.

    Well, my family was Prussia and married another Prussian family and lived in Prussia, and Poland for a generation after the breakup of Prussia. Like I said, I was still learning about all this when I posted this, and did not know the proper term. He did join a Polish Highlander club when in Chicago nearing his death, but was not Polish by blood and identified as Prussian. He had no hostility towards Polish Culture though, and thought of them as a friend more than anything.

    I am pretty stupid for not knowing the difference between the terms, I just used it as it was the only one I knew off the top of my head. I hope people can forgive me for being a retard on that. Although I do have some Celtic influence in my blood(due to being Scot and Ulster Scot), so IDK if that will get me banned.
