Abstract


Oor die Poolse betrekking met en vestiging in Suid-Afrika is weinig geskryf. Die redes daarvoor is die feit dat die betrokke bronne in verskeie argiewe in vele lande bewaar word, maar ook omdat Poolse emigrasie na Suid-Afrika in vergelyking met hulle vestiging in Noord-Amerika en Wes-Europa gering was. Hulle klein getalle en die feit dat hulle oor die hele land verspreid gewoon het, het tydens die onderhawige periode verhoed dat 'n hegte Pooise gemeenskap in Suid-Afrika tot stand gekom het. Tydens die daaropvolgende dekades het die Pole hulle aanwesigheid in Suid-Afrika sterker kenbaar gemaak. Hulle bydrae tot die Suid-Afrikaanse geskiedenis verdien om opgeteken te word.

Not much has been written about Polish relations with or settlement in South Africa. The reasons for this situation are that the sources for the topic are scattered over many archives in various countries and that in comparison with the influx of Poles to North America or Western Europa Polish emigration to South Africa never took place on a massive scale. Because of their small number and the way they were scattered throughout the country. Poles in South Africa did not form a separate community in the period mentioned above. In the next decades Poles marked their presence in South Africa more strongly. The history of Poles in South Africa awaits recognition.
