At the end of the 18th century, Poznań fell under Prussian rule. It was then populated by Poles, Germans and Jews. Power, including the right to decide about city matters, was in the hands of the Germans. Poles, who were subject to many restrictions, refused to accept the central authority that determined their fates. Today’s centre of Poznań was for years the site of a cultural competition between Poles and Germans, in which various visions of city development clashed. To succeed with their initiatives, Poles had to skilfully handle the consequences of Prussian policies. They would often achieve their goals not by force but by ingenuity and perseverance.
