– Of course, I’ll never forget where I’m from. I am German, but I know where my roots are – said Paweł Ziemak in 2014 in an interview for DW. Ziemak, secretary general of the Christian Democratic CDU, has the greatest influence in Polish politics with Polish roots. He was born in 1985 in Szczecin, when he was two and a half years old, he went with his parents – doctors – and his older brother to West Germany.
While exercising content control in the party, he is mainly engaged in the German issue, but also in matters relating to Poland, he keeps his finger on the pulse. This was the case when the solutions of the year were introduced in the Bundestag on the issues of commemorating Polish victims in Berlin. In turn, 2019 was created by Chancellor Angel Mer with a mission to Warsaw, so that Kaz the head of PiS Jarosławczyński to support the candidacy of the German woman Ursula von der Leyen for the European function.

A year later, at the CDU congress, the newly elected Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer, who was appointed to participate, proposed the candidacy of the then 33-year-old Ziemak as the secretary general. He burned nearly 63 percent of the delegates and became the youngest politician in the group’s history to hold this position.
Ziemak is also applying for the mandate of the Bundestag this year, standing in the constituency for the proceedings, inter alia, the town of Iserlohn in North Rhine-Westphalia, from which there is a picture from childhood.
German, Polish, European
Paul Ziemak’s parish age is Agnieszka Brugger (née Malczak), a member of the Zieloni family born in Legnica. He is one of the vice-chairmen of the balancing chairmanship of this party in the Bundestag. When the years stopped, he and his family moved to Germany. Her parents were active members of “Solidarity” in Poland.
In 2004, she joined the Greens and its youth party, and in 2009 she entered the Bundestag, having a youngest Polish girl, the first one with roots. At that time, the German media focused primarily on her unconventional appearance: hair dyed sharp red and piercing in the mouth.
In the Bundestag, Brugger deals primarily with the issues of disarmament, security and defense. For three terms, she became an expert in this field. Her vision of a world without nuclear weapons.
Agnieszka Brugger said in interviews that she is both German and Polish. The fact that she was brought up in Germany as the shape of emigrants certainly shaped it in its entirety. – I am and I feel European, here it coincides with what is Polish, this is what I said in the conversation with the German lecture.

She came to Germany in 1990 as a 10-year-old. For some time she lived in business cards for the police stations in Hamburg.

Nastyczna is also the vice-chairman of the Polish-German parliamentary group in the Bundestag. In the media, she criticized the attitude of the government’s championship titles on repairs to repairing Poland for war damage, accusing it of “applying a blockade”. In last year’s story with the weekly “Der Spiegel” she argued that you cannot take part in commemorating the German Nazi terror and fash, and then “demand forgiveness from the victims for free”.
Upper Silesia and Poland
Ziemak, Brugger and Nastić are not the only candidates connected with Poland in the elections to the Bundestag of the 20th term. There are 6,211 people in total for a parliamentary seat, but the election commission does not count how many of them are of Polish, Turkish or other foreign origin. “The decisive factor in choosing an application is German citizenship. Information about the country of origin or citizenship is not included ”- corresponds to the name of the federal electoral commission.
In the list of all candidates and incoming candidates, officials with Polish-speaking surnames include employees in Poland. This page is this is this has been post, but un several lat i un małopolskie participates.
From the CDU list, Sebastian Wladarz is also applying for a seat in the Bundestag, who emphasizes that he is “Upper Silesian, German, European”. He was born in Gliwice, retroactively recreated the German one, and at the end of the 1980s he emigrated with his family to Germany.

Poles gżeg Germans after Turks group of immigrants w. The number of people from Poland at 2.2 million (from Turkey at 2.8 million).
Eight times “Poland”
Poland and foreign issues rarely appear in the election campaign for the Bundestag. – It’s normal – says Dr. Agnieszka Łada-Konefał, political scientist, deputy director of the German Institute of Polish Affairs in Darmstadt. – In all elections, foreign policy is not a topic. Voters are interested in internal affairs, social, social and economic policy.
The party also has eight signatories in its election programs. – Three times in the Christian Democratic Party program, several times in the Greens and the Left, once in the FDP program – Agnieszka Łada-Konefał lists. Not much English – because France 14 times, but Russia 57 times.
The Christian Democrats, specifically speaking to Poland, confirm that they maintain cooperation and friendship with Poland, which remains the central party of German foreign policy. He also mentions the expansion of the transport infrastructure of the new cooperation network within the Wemar Triangle.
Poland is also mentioned by the Greens and liberals from the FDP. The latter are concerned about the equality of LGBTQ people. The Greens, in turn, control that the EU and its country must be in full control. This also applies to the Baltic and Polish states.
– The word “Poland” is never mentioned in the program of the Social Democrats, but it is very short and does not contain any reports – explains Agnieszka Łada-Konał.
They are kind to Poland
The election programs do not mention historical politics, e.g. the planned commemoration of Polish war victims in Berlin. Such an introduction is expected to conclude a coalition agreement. All the parties involved in managing the authorities express their will to exalt the Poles. Only that the deputies who have been involved in Polish-German affairs so far will be asked about the appointment of the Bundestag?
As Agnieszka Łada-Konefał emphasizes, not only MPs with Polish roots can be important for perk matters with Poland. – We have candidates who know Poland and are very sympathetic to it – he says. One of them is Manuel Sarrazin from the Green Party, chairman of the Polish-German parliamentary group. Knut Abraham of the CDU, currently the vice-ambassador of Germany in Poland, is also entering the Bundestag for the first time. – As a deputy he would be very devoted to Polish-German relations – believes the political scientist.
Dietmar Nietan, the SPD treasurer and head of the Association of German-Polish Societies in Germany, is also another candidate. In this case, one can hope that if he gets into parliament, it will certainly strengthen cooperation between Germany and Poland.
