there isn't much to say except that I'm in awe of this lost world that I only heard stories about. Parts of it still exist, but the culture has changed and so many artifacts and especially incunables are lost forever. So, its amazing to see these places, so well ordered and tidy, manicured, clean, dispels the Polish stereotypes that's for sure.

Here's the link to the Lost Museum (it lists hundreds of thousands of priceless works of art that were destroyed or transported out of Poland):
http://muzeumutracone.pl/en/

However, in my opinion the most painful for Europe is loss of many Polish scientists, professors, intellectuals, elite, etc. who were murdered during WW2 (result: http://wiadomosci.wp.pl/kat,18032,ti...wiadomosc.html).

thank you. from what I understand this building housed the national library or a large part of the national library collections prior to the war of which in this case only 2% were destroyed. the above building now houses the library of the school of business. but after the uprising the nazis destroyed the largest collection of polonica 16-18th century, original manuscripts and books etc, in the national library collections, so I guess the destruction of that collection did not happen in this building, but in the Zaluski or Krasinski library.
