Pasym/Passenheim, Poland

New development in Pasym, on the shores of Lake Kalwa/Calben See:

"Osada Zamkowa is an exclusive housing development, which architecture is coherent with original and historical spirit of Pasym. The place discretly combines the historical and the modern."

Olsztyn /ger. Allenstein, Poland

Sawmill of Raphaelsohn's brothers - restoration

The Raphaelsohns’ sawmill is one of the last remains of first Olsztyn industrial area. Located between river Łyna (ger. Alle) and Roosvelt Square in city center. It was built in 1884 and was one of the few sawmills owned by a wealthy Raphaelsohn family. The older brother - Rudolf Raphaelsohn – was one of the most respected citizens in his community. The entrepreneur was a member of the city council and one of the leaders of Jewish community. After the WWI the sawmill’s area was losing its importance as an industrial area. The factories were moved to a different location - the main train station neighborhood.
In 1930 the Raphaelsohns sold the building to „Städtische Betriebswerke Allenstein GmbH“ for 200.000 mark and since then it was used as a storage house. In 1945 Red Army burned the city and the sawmill was plundered and destroyed. Almost all the members of Raphaelsohns’ family were murdered in Nazi German death camps in Poland, such as Auschwitz.

After the WWII the building went to rack and ruin.




The irony is that everyone forgot its history. Even the Urban Conservator Officer, whose office windows are overlooking the sawmill! In the beginning of XXIst century the building was prepared for demolish. Luckily, a bunch of people - members of local non-governmental organizations (Sadyba, Święta Warmia, Forum Rozwoju Olsztyna, Stowarzyszenie Konserwatorów Zabytków etc) started to fight for its rescue. This process was very difficult. It took almost two years to convince local authorities not to sell the remains of the sawmill to a local developer, but to refurbish it into a modern museum of technology. In 2009 local NGO - "Forum Rozwoju Olsztyna" - won a national architectural competition for best revitalization idea. It was one out of many factors that contributed to the serious rethinking of the post-industrial architecture in the city.
Thanks to a decision of the president of Olsztyn the sawmill’s future became more bright. In subsequent years the city sought funding for the project. Two years ago the building works has started and currently its end is close. Today the sawmill looks like this:










The cost of refurbish and establish of the new museum - 5 mln zł (1,2 mln euro), and 3,6 mln from this cost's was from European funds.

Actually it's only a place where he was born. This building is a reconstruction of the pre-war bouilding that was build on after older house where Erich Mendelsohn was born.

Great! Tapiau was one of the very few towns in North-East Prussia that was spared in 1945. Pictures from 1991 showed a neglected and depressing town. So even if not all renovations look so professional, the result is indeed impressive!

Ethnography is also interesting, but I think this is meant to be an architecture forum.

Former Protestant Church in Rozogi/Friedrichowen, Masuria (bought by Roman Catholics in 1977)


Manor in Rozogi/Friedrichowen (built in the second half of the 19th century)


WW1 cemetery


The Rogalla von Bieberstein/Rogala family (who originally came from Mazovia) owned Rozogi/Friedrichowen since 1842. After WW2 Rozogi gmina was inhabited by 1430 Masurians (44,3% of the total population). You'll find interesting Masurian museum and the Rogalla von Bieberstein family cemetery in the village.

My views:

Prussians were neither Germans, nor Poles, nor Lithuanians, nor Russians. They were an own people with their own history, blood, culture, heritage... but it was destroyed by greed, domination, imperialism of Germany, Russia, Poland and Lithuanian. It is really sad! There are a plenty of their descendents linving in countries such USA, Canada, Australia, Brazil, Argentine... so, I think EU should pass a bill in your European Parlament called Law of Return giving them european citzenship and settle them in Pomerania, Silesia and East Prussia.

People in Kalinnigrad wanna be independent from Russia. We all should support it. I am sure if it happens they will rename those lands as "East Prussia" or simply "Prussia".

and do you think Putin will agree?

BTW: East-Preussia is for Germany as Crimea is for Russian, so if justice was done, and Putins own logic was to be followed (cf his last speech), East Preussia should be returned to Germany.

Yes, but It would be necessary to resettle descendents there. So, almost all Pomerania went to Brazil. Germany gouvernment should do its own Law of Return giving them citzenship.

You would be atonished if you relize this is in Brazil:




Pomerans settlements in Brazil:




There are more in Brazilian states of Santa Catarina and Rio Grande do Sul. Most of them are not mixed with others races although Brazilians are very mixed people.

I was born and live in Iława/Deutsch Eylau. I feel neither Polish nor German let alone Lithuanian. I feel Prussian (don't confuse it with a German Preussen) although my native language is Polish. Prussian is gone as a spoken language. My land was called Pameddi in Prussian and Pomezania in Polish (and still is) and it's not a part of Warmia-Mazury and never was. Prussian state one day would be great, seems unlikely at the moment but in the future everything is possible.

The more interesting question is: will the people in Kaliningrad oblast agree?
Although I don't support the annexation of Crimea (especially the way it has been done) the fact is that most of residents of Crimea agree with this (and I don't mean so-called referendum). I'm afraid it's not the case with Kaliningrad.
