Spór o Wilno w litewskiej prasie konspiracyjnej w 1943 roku
Dispute over Vilnius in the Lithuanian underground press in 1943


The problem of Polish-Lithuanian dispute about Vilnius began to exist when the national aspirations have grown. It became to be real at the beginning of The First World War. The loss of Vilnius in 1920 has determined the foreign policy of Lithuania in the interwar period, which has resulted in focus on Berlin and Moscow. Retrieval of Vilnius in October 1939 according to Lithuanian-soviet treaty, stated Vilnius as a polish city. That was the reason why Lithuanian policy tried to make a city Lithuanian again. The German occupation brought a confrontation between the Lithuanian and the Polish insurgents and the press printed by them became the first line of the ongoing dispute.
