However, as the government of Poland lost its power and the Russians made huge efforts to kill off the Polish culture - with the Polish language even being banned in schools - the people of Poland were determined to keep their Polish cultural heritage alive and so the country existed in a spiritual and social sense even though the official country no longer existed.
