, PDS) was a democratic socialist (Democratic socialism) political party active in Germany from 1989 to 2007. It was the legal successor to the Socialist Unity Party (Socialist Unity Party of Germany) (SED), which ruled the German Democratic Republic (East Germany) until 1990. From 1990 through to 2005, the PDS had been seen as the left-wing "party of the East". While it achieved minimal support in western Germany, it regularly won 15% to 25% of the vote in eastern Germany, entering coalition governments (with the Social Democratic Party (Social Democratic Party of Germany)) in the federal states of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern and Berlin. The Pomeranian language also influenced the Low German dialects, which were used in Pomerania. After Germanisation, the population of Western Pomerania started to use the Low German dialects. Those dialects, though, were influenced by the Pomeranian language (Slavic). Most words originating from Pomeranian can be found in vocabulary connected with fishery and farming. The word ''Zeese'' ''Zehse'' may serve as an example. It describes a kind of a fishing net and is still known in the Low German dialects of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern today. The word comes from the old Pomeranian word of the same meaning- ''seza''. It moved to Kashubian and Slovincian dialects through Low German, and appeared in Pomeranian dictionaries as ''ceza'' meaning “flounder and perch fishing net”. Thus, it is so called “reverse loan-word” as the Pomeranian language borrowed the word from Low German in which it functioned as “pomeranism” (a borrowing from the Pomeranian language). Historical Pomerania is currently sub-divided into the following contemporary political regions: *'''Vorpommern''' (Western Pomerania) ("Western" or "Hither Pomerania") in northeastern Germany, stretching from the Recknitz River to the Oder–Neisse line. This region is part of the Federal State (States of Germany) of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. The southernmost parts of historical Vorpommern (Gartz area (Gartz (Oder))) are now in Brandenburg, Germany, while its historical easternmost parts (Oder estuary, "''Stettiner Zipfel''") are in the West Pomeranian Voivodeship, Poland. Vorpommern comprises the historical regions Principality of Rügen and County of Gützkow. *'''Zachodniopomorskie''' ("West Pomeranian Voivodeship") in Poland, stretching from the Oder–Neisse line to the Słupia River. After Nazi Germany's defeat in World War II, the German–Polish border was shifted west to the Oder–Neisse line and all of Pomerania was under Soviet military control (Soviet Military Administration in Germany).

Mecklenburg-Vorpommern

The majority (79.4%) of the citizens of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania are irreligious or unaffiliated. As of 2010, 17.3% are members of the Evangelical Church in Germany and 3.3% of the Catholic Church. Evangelische Kirche in Deutschland: ''Kirchenmitgliederzahlen am 31. Dezember 2010''. EKD, 2011, (PDF; 0,45 MB)

Following the Christian Reformation (Protestant Reformation), led in Germany by Martin Luther, as well as a period of Swedish (Sweden) rule, the traditional faith in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern is Protestantism, specifically Lutheranism. There are also a number of Catholics and people of other faiths. Both confessions are split at the old border; Mecklenburg belongs to the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Mecklenburg and the Archdiocese of Hamburg, West Pomerania forms the Pomeranian Evangelical Church (some parts however belonging to Brandenburg (Evangelical Church Berlin-Brandenburg-Silesian Upper Lusatia) in this respect) or belongs to the Archdiocese of Berlin. As to the Protestants, a union to form a ''North Church'' (together with the North Elbians (North Elbian Evangelical Lutheran Church)) is in progress.
