Stupid !

Warsaw is not this, only 1/5 are maybe commie blocks.... the rest of the city is Green with beautiful old town, new town, modern town etc ..... and the commie blocks are destroyed or transformed !
hmm what you ar writing is weird, Warsaw has lots of blocks - and they do kind of dominate but Warsaw has other things to compensate for these eyesores hehe

From the March 1945 issue, Manila burns from aerial attack in late 1944. The beginning of the end as a plume of white smoke rises from the corner near Bastion de San Diego, a mushroom cloud explodes over San Nicolas, and the what was once the world's longest pier, South Port Pier 7 burns black smoke:

You must read more what happened to Poland after 1939 or even before.
Basically people have choice of being dead or imprison as enemy of the state or wait for better time to come. In Poland we have uprisings against Russia in 1794, 1812 war, 1830, 1863, 1920, 1939. We lost about half of the population. Somebody said without these wars it might be 100 mln Polish today. In 1945 Stalin have 10 000 warplanes and the army that easy controlled half of the Europe. The other half was shitting into their pants kissing American ASS.

That reminds me alot of American cities and the urban renewal era(1950's-1970's) in which entire victorian neighborhoods and ornate structures were replaced by nasty boxes or parking when they had few(if any) problems structually.
Sadly, due to the fact that many of the structures demolished were only about 100-150 years old, none have been re-constructed.

Its great to see how much effort the Polish people are putting to reconstruct their capital, that was completly destroyed by the WWII, thanks to those fanatic Nazis and lets not forget, Stalin was also very happy to see how the city was completly destroyed, he stood outside the city(his army) waiting for the Germans to finish the destruction, and not moving a finger to stop it...he is also a war criminal !!

And even the old city center has been amazingly restaured, the XIX century city its almost gone and probably will never be reconstructed, and those parts of the old cities also give a lot of charm to any city, like Viena, Paris, etc...sad....

XIXth century buildings were elegant but their loss is not as painful as the loss of entire medieval suburbs.

Almost every major German City looked like that.
And yes, those who made that to our cities claim to be our liberators, unlike ther Nazis, who never claimed to be Polands friends.

World War II was really hard moment for most of european cities, and we're not trying to argue which was more destroyed etc. Some of poles are really proud of warsaw because it could be only an empty field now. (There were plans to move capital to cracow again, and leave the city ruins as a monument) Our grandfathers did a great job with rebuilding ruins of a dead city and make it alive again. And this is something we should appreciate.

Dresden comes to mind. Lovely what the English did there.
Anyways, its so sad what happened to Warsaw, such a beautiful city. It is beautiful now, but it was so much more back then. WWII wiped away a lot of amazing history in this world.
