    What's up with slavs/slaves being all over Europe in every topic concerning them? Don't you people have better things to do with your lives?

    What exactly is your question, Wotan Gott? These people were a small community of Wenden who seem to have been absorbed or died out by the early 1700s, not that much is known about them and their historical footprint seems rather small.

    Quote Originally Posted by dbpedia.org
    The Polabian language is an extinct West Slavic language that was spoken by the Polabian Slavs (German: Wenden) in present-day northeastern Germany around the Elbe (Łaba/Laba/Labe in Slavic) river, from which derives its name (po Labe - [traveling] on Elbe or [living] up to Elbe). It was spoken approximately until the rise to power of Prussia in mid-18th century, when it was superseded by Low German. By the 18th century, Lechitic Polabian was in some respects markedly different from other Slavic languages, most notably in having a strong German influence. It was close to Pomeranian and Kashubian, and is attested only in a handful of manuscripts, dictionaries and various writings from the 17th and 18th centuries.
    Here's something more on the subject of Polabian Slavs.
    “War is waged by men; not by beasts, or by gods. It is a peculiarly human activity. To call it a crime against mankind is to miss at least half its significance; it is also the punishment of a crime.” - Frederic Manning, The Middle Parts of Fortune
