On the 31st January 1945 the town of Schwiebus was occupied by Red Army troops and shortly after the existing population was expelled to the west of the new Oder-Neisse border, which now divides Poland from Germany. Poles, many of whom had also been displaced from areas now lost to Ukraine, moved in to Schwiebus and the town was renamed Świebodzin.
