Silesia is a historico-cultural region in central europe. Originally a Polish duchy, it became gradually distant from Poland and was attached to Bohemia in 1350, then Austria in 1526. The northwest became gradually germanized, while the southest remained slavic. In 1740 Prussia invaded most of the country, which was then split in Autrian and Prussian Silesia. In 1945 most of it was attached to Poland again. There's small German and Czech parts, too.
