Polish-Canadian relations after World War II are usually viewed through the prism of the fate of the Wawel treasure, which was successfully removed from the country in September 1939. They returned to Krakow only in 1959. The author’s intention is to analyze the attitude of Canadian diplomacy to issues of territorial affiliation and the past. the Szczecin front in the context of the evolution of Ottawa’s policy towards Poland’s western border issue. The development of Polish-Canadian relations in the post-war period and during the Cold War is also important for this topic. Hence the choice of the title of the book “Canada i Szczecin 1945-1990. In the Shadow of the Borders. One may ask the question: why Canada and Szczecin? In the following years, and especially during World War II, Canada began to expand its formal relations with other countries, including Poland, and pursued an active policy towards it.In contrast, Canadian troops were stationed in West Germany from 1951 until the end of the Cold War.
