The Corps Pomerania Greifswald is a striking and color-bearing student association at the University of Greifswald .


The corps was founded on November 5, 1810 at what was then the Swedish Alma Mater Gryphiswaldensis . In 1813 the members from Swedish-Western Pomerania founded the subsidiary Sueco-Pomerania , which was re-established in Pomerania after the area was incorporated into Prussia (1815). On August 22, 1816, the Neopomerania was constituted, which was re- established at the end of 1817. The name Neopomerania also referred to the former Swedish territory now known as "New Western Pomerania".

In 1816, Pomerania was banned by the academic authorities. Secretly reconstituted that same year, it was postponed in 1817. The Pomerania Greifswald association resumed active operations in 1819 and was reconstituted on June 12, 1829 with the old colors and the old motto . 1834, 1847, 1873 and 1876 each had to be adjourned for one semester. In his early years, which used the country Corps Pomerania close links with the same Corps in Frankfurt (Oder) , Göttingen , Halle (Saale) and Berlin .

As early as 1858, ten years after the founding of the KSCV, Pomerania and Theodor Eiserhardt appointed the Heidelberg oKC chairman . She was the presiding suburban corps of the KSCV three times and in 1870 appointed Fritz Siemens (1870), Carl Colley (1890) and Alfred Solger (1908) the chairman of the oKC.

Because of the First World War , Pomerania was inactive from 1914 to 1919. In the era of National Socialism they had in 1935, like all Corps suspend . The old men supported the SC-Kameradschaft Yorck , which existed from August 1937 to March 1945 and was based on the tradition of the Corps Borussia . After the Second World War , reconstitution in the Soviet occupation zone and in the German Democratic Republic was impossible; however, the corps inheritance was cultivated by members of the Corps Saxonia Göttingen until the fall of the Berlin Wall . The sons of old men at Saxonia received the Pomeranian ribbon when they fought a scale on their colors . In the absence of active members, a reconstitution has since been postponed twice. Pomerania has been active again since 2005 and has been based in Greifswald since 2006. At the 200th Foundation Festival (2010), the former Prime Minister of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, Alfred Gomolka, gave the keynote address.
