Polish legation in the Netherlands.
Scope and Content Note
This collection consists of a good portion of the secret correspondence sent and received by the Polish legation in the Netherlands
during the interwar period, relating to Polish-Dutch relations, as well as of memoranda in preparation for an international
peace conference in the early 1930s. It serves not only as a good source for the study of the international tensions that
led to the outbreak of World War II but also provides good coverage of the first two months of the conflict.
Of particular interest are the telegrams exchanged with Warsaw at the time of the Russo-Polish War of 1920, reflecting Poland's
attempts to acquire arms in Western Europe and diplomatic moves to prevent an international blockade on deliveries by workers
sympathizing with the Bolsheviks.
These records were formerly part of the Polish Foreign Ministry collection, acquired by the Hoover Archives in 1959, and were
accessioned in the early 1990s as a separate collection.
A microfilm copy of these materials has been deposited in the State Archives of Poland in Warsaw.
