Wikipedia, March 9, 2015 (Polish government-in-exile; formally known as the Government of the Republic of Poland in exile (Polish: Rząd Rzeczypospolitej Polskiej na uchodźstwie), was the government in exile of Poland formed in the aftermath of the Invasion of Poland of September 1939, and the subsequent occupation of Poland by Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union, which brought to an end the Second Polish Republic; Polish government-in-exile was based in France during 1939 and 1940, first in Paris (1939-1940) and then in Angers (1940). From 1940, following the Fall of France, the government moved to London, and remained in England until its dissolution in 1990; only after the end of Communist rule in Poland did the government-in-exile formally pass on its responsibilities to the new government of the Third Polish Republic in December 1990)
