Improper Italicization[edit]

There is also no reason to italicize former German names of now-Polish localities in the areas given to postwar Poland by the Potsdam Conference. In English, italics usually denote foreign (non-English) words for things or concepts, but not place names. Prior to 1945, Giżycko was officially Lötzen, not Lötzen, and the German name should not be italicized.
