The evolution of the present structure was influenced by various factors acting differently in three historical periods determined by changes in Poland’spolitical circumstances: (i)the nineteenth and the beginning of the twentieth century, when Polish territories belonged to Russia, Prussia and Austria, the three powers which had partitioned Poland among themselves;(ii)the twenty years between the two world wars, after Poland had regained her independence;(iii)the years after the Second World War and after the essential changes in territory as well as in the social and economic system.
