    Post Re: A Good History of Pomerania

    Do you know the link to the original page, which is written in German, since it makes me feel a bit strange reading information about the history of a region situated in my very fatherland in a different language (in this case English). So... I would be grateful for your help...

    Another thing that came into my view, is this map (http://members.tripod.com/~radde/plnewa1.gif) showing nowadays Poland, which says that the new "polish" provinces on pomeranian ground are divided into "Westpommern" (Western Pomerania) and "Pommern" (Pomerania). But I always thought it´s not called "Westpommern" but "Hinterpommern". Is it right to speak of "Westpommern"? So maybe you know the solution to my little concerns.

    The site does not seem to be available in Plattdüütsch. But here it is in German:

    http://radde.tripod.com/GeschichtePommerns.html

    I also found a Yahoo! Group you might find interesting called Pomeranian_Griffin:

    Pommersch' Geschicht, Kultur, Uurtskunn, Söken na de Vöröllern un Vörhebben. Disse Siet is miehrsprakig (Düütsch, Plattdüütsch, Engelsch, Kaschubisch, Polnisch), wiethartig un in den Sinn von de Völkerverstännigung.

    Pommersche Geschichte, Kultur, Ortskunde, Genealogie und Projekte. Diese Seite ist mehrsprachig (Deutsch, Plattdeutsch, Englisch, Kaschubisch, Polnisch), tolerant und im Geiste der Völker-Verständigung.

    Pomeranian history, culture, geography, genealogy and projects. This site is multi-lingual (English, German, Low German, Kaszubian, Polish), tolerant and in the spirit of international understanding.

    "Westpommern" seems to be all over the internet, so my guess is it's a neologism that is here to stay. Whether it is correct, from a linguistic or historical perspective, I do not know.

    Yes, as far as i've ever heard it, it's Hinterpommern. It's probably just been alternately called Westpommern so English-speakers will be able to identify the region better.
