    4.2          Documents relating to Polish territories before WW II

    Due to the complex history of Poland - war operations, partitions, emigration of many Poles - numerous documents are to be found outside the Polish borders. They are preserved by Polish archives and other institutions abroad as well as by archives and institutions of foreign states. Inquiries may be pursued by contacting the boards of archives in these states and carried out through the mediation of Polish consular posts in a given country.
