Your provocation attempt has been noticed, but failed.

For example, the German city of Breslau, which throughout its over 1000-year long history had been part of Prussia and then Germany since 1742 (after the First Silesian War), died in 1945. Then, the Polish city of Wrocław was reborn and rebuilt from ruins, with the skills and work of the Polish people, many of whom had lost their homes in Poland's Eastern Territories (Kresy Wschodnie) as a result of WW2.

Therefore, I'd invite you to quit the attempts at messing in Poland-related threads and go back to your playground of the Baltic wooden folklore.

Does anyone know how Jan Matejko's art survived WW2? Some of his works were huge. Hitler did not care for Slavic art and was more interested in destroying it. The Germans would have taken all "Germanic" looking art out of Poland.

the "Battle of Grunwald" was burried underground in Lublin's public transportation depot. It survived the War in a very bad state and required extensive restoration. the "Prussian Homage" was hidden in Zamość in the cellar of St. Catherine's. As you may know, many Royal treasures from Wawel were shipped to Canada and then recovered in the 1960s.

I know ancient tapestries were sent from Wawel in Krakow to Canada but I did not know about any paintings of this size.
I was just curious because Matejko was into portraying patriotic scenes in Polish history and let's be honest, his canvas was huge. How they all managed to survive is interesting. I was in Wroclaw in 2011 and he had his own room in the national museum there (not to mention even Warsaw and Krakow).

Józef Lustgarten (1 November 1889, Krakow - 22 September 1973, Kraków) was a Polish Jewish footballer.

Born in Cracow, he represented Cracovia, and was the fist manager of the Poland national football team in 1922. During World War II, he was arrested in Lviv (Lwów) in 1939 by NKVD and send to the Gulag, where spent 17 years. After returning to Poland, he became the honorary president of "Cracovia Kraków" club.

Some works by Stanislaw Chlebowski (30.07.1890, Braniewo – 20.09.1969, Gdańsk)...



During the war, his studio and almost the entire artistic oeuvre (800 works) burned down.

Would be great to rebuild sculpture over the entrance to the post (probably destroyed by Nazis)
