Święta Lipka/ Heiligelinde, Poland

Sanctuary of St. Mary

Monastery

Nave

Organ by Johan Josua Mosengel

author: Schorle

Although the village lay in the protestant region of Masuria, the Catholic faith was again approved in the Duchy of Prussia in 1605. The chapel was rebuilt by the Jesuits and consecrated in 1619 by the Warmian prince-bishop Szymon Rudnicki and became a popular pilgrimage site among the Catholic populace of the nearby Warmia as well as the Lutheran Masurians.

Reszel was granted the location priviledge in 1337 under Magdeburg law, and since 1466 had been a part of Polish province of Warmia.

Since the second half of the 17th century a renown Jesuit college provided education to both catholics and protestants.The college was funded by the King Jan Kazimierz. In 1772 the Kingdom of Prussia annexed the city following the First Partition of Poland.
The town was transferred from Germany after WWII to Poland following the Potsdam Conference of 1945.

This is why Germans turned almsot every bigger city into fortress. Just to prevent so big damages on other parts of Reich and of course later occupation by USSR.

The palace in Galiny/Schloss Gallingen, Poland

Galiny granary

author: Honza Groh

Former farm buildings

author: Ludwig Schneider

The manor house dates back to 1589 and was built by Botho zu Eulenburg. Initially it had the shape of an "U" and was surrounded by a water-filled moat and a drawbridge. The manor was not destroyed throughout World War II but slowly fell into ruins in the postwar years. Since 1995 it is reconstructed and today used as a hotel.

I agree with you, but I think you mean the "revival" styles that came into vogue in the 1800's. They do have value of course, but I prefer originals. Mind you, artistry and craftsmanship was still on a high level in the 1800's and early 20th.

It seems the prevention wasn't extremely successful

There's also very nice gothic church in Galiny, with tombstones inside the buildings. There is also a graveyard.

Definately it is not 1945. It is shooting feature movie. Looks at the cars and at the pedestal of the Bismark's statue already placed bust of A. Suvorov.

Were the former German owners of the estates and large homes in East Prussia ever compensated for their property lost in WWI and WWII?

Were the former Polish owners of the estates and large homes in Kresy ever compensated for their property lost in WW1 and WW2?

Were families of 7,200,000 Russian civilians and over 2,500,000 ethnic Polish civilians (not including Polish Jews) killed by Germans during the war compensated as well?

http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kriegst...tkrieges#Polen

What compensation did Germany pay to Russians and Poles for looted and destroyed artworks during WW2? For destroyed cities, such as Warsaw or Volgograd?

Last but not least, who won WW1 and WW2?

Rediculous.
At first, crimes that follow crimes are still crimes. Kresy itself was annexed 1921 after a war against Russia. And not to forget Operation Vistula in 1947.

And when you start to accumulate lives with money or materials. Yes, we payed. A lot.
1/4 of the country lost, all big cities destroyed, 12-14 Million displaced germans, 2 Million of them dead or missed, 45 years of occupation an seperation, Billions of compensation and reperation payments and countless virtu that are still laying in russian depots.
We started, we lost, we payed.

I hope you realize that Poles were owners of castles, palaces, etc. in Kresy before the war in 1919-1921, and not Russians.

Ah ok, I did not know that this is enough to invade another country. So I can buy a house with garden in Poland and call it germany? Interesting. Unfortunately we do not learn such important things at school here.

It wasn't Polish-Russian war, but Polish-Soviet war. It was more about defending lands against the Soviet politics (Communism) and Soviet influence in Europe. Of course, you know that Soviets started the conflict and not only Poles participated in that war (Polish Army had Lithuanian-Belarusian, Ukrainian and Latvian divisions formed from volunteers). At that time, Poland helped Latvia to gain independence (see Battle of Daugavpils).

Btw, Soviet (not only Russian) casualties during the war in 1919-1921 are estimated at 60,000 (no civilians have been killed!).

"Unfortunately we do not learn such important things at school here."
German schools are really great. Only your history classes are steeped in anti-Polish sentiment.

Palace in Kamieniec / Schloss Finckenstein, Poland:

was a baroque palace, projected by the architect John von Collas between 1716 and 1720.

It was built by Prussian Field Marshal, Marquess, and Count Albrecht Konrad Reinhold Finck von Finckenstein and remained in the possession of the Finck von Finckenstein family until 1782.

After that the Counts Dohna-Schlobitten lived in it until 1945, when the Red Army set the palace on fire January 22, 1945 during their conquest of East Prussia.

Painting by François Mulard " Treaty of Finckenstein"



The palace became well known in 1807, when Napoleon made it his residence from April through June of that year. The Treaty of Finckenstein between France and Persia was signed here. Here, Napoleon met his mistress Maria Walewska, with whom he lived in the palace. The Hollywood movie Conquest was filmed here in 1937 with Greta Garbo and Charles Boyer.
