HERE are some data concerning the German minorities in Poland:
1. At the Census of 1931 they numbered 741,000 persons, i.e. 2.13 per cent of the total population. Since then the coefficient of births being greater with the Poles than with the Germans, this percentage can only have diminished.
2. The German minority forms nowhere a compact group. It is spread all over the territory. One finds small German islands as far as the Russian frontier.
3. There is only a very feeble proportion of Germans in the Corridor.
4. There is no doubt that a great part of the German minority wishes to live on peaceful terms with the Poles.
