    KATTOWITZ, a Town in the Prussian Province of Silesia

    My family were ethnic Germans from Kattowitz and I hope to visit the city the next time I'm in Silesia. -smil


    KATTOWITZ, a town in the Prussian province of Silesia, on the Rawa, near the Russian frontier, 5 m. S.E. from Beuthen by rail. Pop. (1875), 11,352; (1905), 35,772- There are large ironworks, foundries and machine shops in the town, and near it zinc and anthracite mines. The growth of Kattowitz, like that of other places in the same district, has been very rapid, owing to the development of the mineral resources of the neighborhood. In 1815 it was a mere village, and became a town in 1867. It has monuments to the emperors William I. and Frederick III.

    Kattowitz, Katowice, Stalingrod or whatever you call it is very uninteresting...industry, coal mines, steelworks

    People who live or lived in Silesia are generally a mix of polish, czech and german people

    But you have to see. Half Poland is german.
    The only reason, that Poland is that big now is, that the Reich is incompetent to act.
    And I remember Kattowitz is german in the borders of 1939
