Minorities in Poland


From 1918, when Poland regained its independence, until World War II, Poland was a multi-ethnic nation. While ethnic Poles were in the majority (constituting about two thirds of the population), Jews and Ukrainians were significant minorities (about ten percent each), and there were smaller minority populations of Lithuanians, Belorusians, Germans, and others. In today's Poland, however, as a result of the Holocaust and post-war boundary changes, almost everyone in Poland is at least nominally Roman Catholic.
