Ogarna Street after WW2

RS UK-PL, it is a very emotional experience going through these images, but you know we have to be positive and look forward to a better future, not letting the past weigh us down too much. A much better world is coming - if we work together.

btw, met a very nice couple for brunch from Belfast who are living in Canada at the moment. Irish people are super!

This is probably the best reconstruction that I've ever seen here

Really? Is there anyone who doesn't know that Nazi's plan included elimination of Polish people and it was one of their main goals? And that Nazis were planning the war long before 1939? Sonderfahndungsbuch Polen was prepared by Germans in 1937, Stutthof concentration camp was built in 1937, etc...

Btw, Judaism is just a religion. Polish Jews (e.g. Julian Tuwim, Stanislaw Lem, Jan Brzechwa) were as Polish as Catholic Poles.

For me number one from Gdansk is Schlieffen House, what is funny about this example is that original survived, and now it's in Berlin

^ Before WW2


After


Oslo2022, thanks for very entertaining video. Do you know why Prussian eagle on the Highland/Upland Gate was restored? Why it wasn't replaced by Polish eagle after WW2 or completely removed as it was before partitions of Poland (now - http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedi..._wschodnia.JPG, before partitions - video between 3.40 and 3.50)? It was added in 1884, so it didn't have actually any historic importance and value in 1945.

Is it just because of German tourists? Probably for neo-Nazis it's a good excuse to start discussion "Danzig war und ist eine deutsche Stadt" (see tags below).

The gold-plated statue of Polish king Sigismund II Augustus was placed on the top of a Town Hall tower in 1950. It was reconstructed by Kazimierz Macur (the original figure from 1561 was destroyed during WW2).

The statue has a height of 1,82 m.

Coin made by Gdansk (Gedanen) mint during the reign of Sigismund II Augustus
