    Abstrakt

    This article deals with the compulsory integration of the newly regained northern and western regions of Poland at the end of the Second World War. A nationalist policy of Polonization was implemented to align the new Polish territories with the Polish heartland. The role of the Polish Catholic Church should not be underestimated in this process, as it exercised great influence over the Polish population. As a consequence, the boundary between State and Church nationalist integration policy steadily disappeared - especially in the northern and western regions.
