In the 19th century, the population of Poznań, made up of the three main ethnic groups – Poles, Germans and Jews – became a modern urban community. Technological progress, advances in medicine and universal access to education gradually improved the standard of living. As public awareness was raised, the residents took growing interest in various activities, particularly in social and business initiatives that transformed the face of Poznań at that time.
