Aspects of Polish Life in Darmstadt. A Local Case Study
Languages of publication
Darmstadt is not a classical destination of Polish migration to Germany but over the years has emerged as such in the Polish-German context on account of the Deutsches Polen-Institut grounded in 1980. Nevertheless, this city with a population of over 140.000 is a good example of the presence and functioning of Poles and speakers of Polish in Germany. The first part of the article deals with the question of the number of Poles or speakers of Polish since statistical data show a marked increase of these numbers in recent years. The second part discusses various aspects of the Polish presence in Darmstadt and its vicinity – from societies, through shops and restaurants to the possibility of obtaining information on current developments. Darmstadt has quite a vibrant Polish life which is only partly addressed exclusively to the Polish community, while numerous initiatives are of a transnational character.
