The article sketches the picture of overseas emigration of Polish people in the press in the first years after World War II based on the main English language newspapers of that time: “The Times”, “The Scotsman”, “The Guardian” and “The Observer”. Additionally, the local newspaper, “The Evening Times” and “Dziennik Polski i Dziennik Żołnierza”, issued since 1943, were taken into consideration. Emigration was reflected in press articles, but it was also, to some extent, given its press shape. After 1945, Polish people most often emigrated to the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, Brasil and Argentina, as well as South Africa. The destination countries of Polish post-war migration got a wide coverage in the press, which provided the potential emigrants with basic information. The newspapers pointed out to the the potential of a given country, its current and planned immigration policy and the problems that might be encountered by the emigrants leaving Great Britain.
