Report from MO’s Poland correspondent

Here are two posts from the previous week that I meant to include in Linkzookery but didn’t. Since I overlooked them on the proper day, they get their own post now and I’ll throw in an extra for free. Because you can’t beat free stuff.

  • Halifax Discovered
    A British Halifax heavy bomber, shot down during an attempt to supply Polish resistance fighters during 1944’s Warsaw Uprising, has been discovered buried in a field near Dabrowa Tarnowska. The crew included Brits and Canadians.
  • 13 grudnia 1981
    On December 13th, 25 years ago, martial law was imposed on Poland. In the words of Leia Organa, “The more you tighten your grip, Tarkin, the more star systems will slip through your fingers…” The Empire would not last.

Go check them all out. Worth the time.
