Stodoły [stɔˈdɔwɨ] (lit. barns, German: Stodoll) is a district of Rybnik, Silesian Voivodeship, southern Poland. In the late 2013 it had about 600 inhabitants.[1]


The village could have existed before 1258.

After World War I in the Upper Silesia plebiscite 260 out of 393 voters in Stodoły voted in favour of joining Poland, against 131 opting for staying in Germany.[2] Nevertheless it stayed a part of Germany, on the border with Poland. It was renamed as "Hochlinden" after campaign of cleansing "Non-German" place names in 1936.[3] It was a place of a Nazi false flag operation (as part of Operation Himmler) on August 31, 1939.[4][5][6] After the war it became a part of Poland.

In years 1973-1977 it was a part of gmina Chwałęcice and was amalgamated with Rybnik on February 1, 1977.[7]
