A small number of Poles came to Chile, with first of them coming during the Napoleonic wars. In early 20th century, there were around 300 Poles in Chile. One of the most notable Polish Chileans, Ignacy Domeyko became chancellor of the University of Chile between 1867 and 1883. A remarkable architect, Luciano Kulczewski Garcia the grand-son of the November 1831 Uprising, has been called the ¨national¨ architect of Chile for his unique and original buildings from the first part of the 20th century. After the World War II, 1947-1951, around 1,500 Poles, mostly former Zivilarbeiter (forced laborers in Nazi Germany), as well as former soldiers and inmates of Nazi concentration camps settled in Chile. In 1949 the Association of Poles in Chile was founded (reestablished formally as "Zjednoczenie Polskie w Chile im. Ignacego Domeyki" /Unión Polaca de Chile "Ignacio Domeyko" in 1992, president Andrzej Zabłocki ). A significant majority of Polish Chileans live in Santiago.
