The largest Polish community on the African continent is to be found in the Republic of South Africa. The biggest influx of Poles to South Africa took place after 1980, while the largest wave of departures occurred during the period between the assassination of Chris Hani and the general election in April 1994. Poles have made their own unique contribution to South African culture and society.
