Abstract:

In compliance with the resolutions made at the Yalta Conference in 1945, new borders of the post-war Polish state were demarcated and the necessity of displacing the German population from the lands incorporated into Poland was agreed upon. This led to mass-scale displacements of the population from the former eastern lands of the Second Republic of Poland to the so-called Recovered Territories (or Western Lands), which in turn triggered the exceptionally traumatic process of people’s “growing into” the new space. The author follows this complicated and long-lasting process, using the example of the Opole Region, where two communities co-existed side by side: the displaced and the autochthonous, both sides equally going through the peculiar shock connected with their difficult adjustment to the new socio-political reality. The drama of the situation resulted also from the clash of two totally different communities of remembrance. In the author’s opinion, presently we can speak of the progressing finalization of the process of “taming the space” at last, as documented by the experiences of the third generation of the so-called “uprooted” persons
