Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The terms Polonophobia, anti-Polonism, antipolonism and anti-Polish sentiment refer to a spectrum of hostile attitudes toward Polish people and culture. These terms apply to racial prejudice against Poles and people of Polish descent, including ethnicity- based discrimination and state-sponsored mistreatment of Poles. This led to genocide during World War II, notably by the German Nazis, the Soviets and Ukrainian nationalists. Anti-Polish sentiment often entails modern-day derogatory stereotyping.
