Most ethnic Poles were relocated after WWII from what became the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic in the USSR to the then newly acquired western Poland.

Many Poles from Lwow resettled to the large city Wrocław (named Breslau by the Germans).

Most Poles from the larger village of Usznia resettled to the village of DomaniówDomaniów is located today in the województwo (province) Dolnośląskie (Lower Silesia), in the powiat (county) of Oława, about 30 km south of Wrocław (which before WWII was referred to in German as Breslau).

Most Poles from the smaller village of Czeremosznia resettled to the village of Kurznie.  Kurznie is located today in the województwo (province) of Opole, in the northern part of the powiat of Opole, in the gmina of Popielów, about halfway between Brzeg and Opole.
