Incorrect. These banners were owned by Sigismund III of Poland. He died in 1632, so before Second Northern War. They were taken from Warsaw in 1655.

Deluge (English Wiki)
Polish libraries in Uppsala University

bolg, you shouldn't be surprised that Poles are trying to recover lost items. Poland is still cultural desert after WW2...

"Prudential" in Warsaw (at the time, the second tallest European skyscraper with eighteen storeys, 66 metres, designed by Stefan Bryla, destroyed in WW2)

In 1936 a large antenna was constructed on the roof by professor Janusz Groszkowski, who started the first television broadcasts in Poland from that facility (Wiki is not a good source, thanks bolg )

Silesian Museum and Warsaw Main Train Station were destroyed and then remains demolished I believe. I didn't know that Katowice (or Lodz for that matter) suffered much destruction during WW2.

Not only in '30s. It was a continuous process since 1921. You have to remember that after WW1 and Polish-Soviet War most of eastern Poland have been completely ruined. Between 1914 - 1921, almost two million buildings were destroyed, together with 56% of rolling stock, 64% of rail stations, 390 larger and 2019 smaller bridges.

Read this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sztafeta#De_profundis

BTW, did you know that for example Sandomierz, Tarnopol Castle, Olesko Castle or Zbaraż Castle are interwar reconstructions?

Far from it. Baird made the first broadcasts in the 1920s and the BBC was the first public television service.

Are those multifamiliar modernist buildings in Warsaw still standing? They are (were?) quite interesting.

appalling. no wonder so many of my parents and grandparents generation suffered from depression and anxiety disorders. such evil, relentless evil. decent civilized people having to build and rebuild over and over, walking back from death camps and gulags to rebuild their cities, then to be re-occupied and expropriated and enslaved again, then to have to rebuild again after the rusted wreckage of communism collapses, then economic shock therapy, then the EU, and now they can really get to work to build a country for low wages while making money outside Poland away from home in other EU states while kids wait at home for their parents. still a ways to go unless Europe once again f--ks up. makes me very angry.

Yes, many of them survived because their construction was strong and resisted fire or they were further for the areas where the heaviest fighting took place. We have a whole district built in this period with early modernis blocks and villas.

Yes,estates Ochota and Rakowiec, Koło (north-western part of Wola), Grochów (the centre of Praga Południe), Żoliborz. The villas' estates – Higher Mokotów (there lived President Starzyński), Czerniaków (north of Wilanów), Saska Kępa (between Poniatowski and Łazienkowski bridges) as well as Żoliborz.

interesting photo. The scene looks quite peaceful. The signage is both in German (Hauptbahnhof) and Polish and is the building name Viktoria?
