The battle of Wizna was fought between September 7th and 10th, 1939. It was one of the initial stages of the Invasion of Poland. Many consider it the most heroic battle of WWII, with around 700 Poles fircely defending a fortified line from 40,000 German soldiers. The battle is often referred to as the "Polish Thermopylae".

We weren't very satisfied with our national team's performance during the Olympics, but our paralympians don't cease to amaze us. Poland's already got 24 medals, which adds up to 9th place in the medal count - and we've still got another 4 days to improve our score :)

Polish IPN (Institute for National Remembrance) launched a website on Nazi death camps. The site clearly explains the origins of the camps and puts emphasis on the fact that they were German, not Polish. It also provides some interesting facts about Poland during the Nazi occupation.

The interior of the Tempel Synagogue in Krakow, Poland. Tempel Synagogue is a 19th-century Reform synagogue in Krakow built in an attractive neo-Renaissance style with Moorish interior decorations. Its grandeur best captures the wealth of Jewish life here before the war. (http://www.sacred-destinations.com/poland/krakow-tempel-synagogue.htm).

One of our favourite places in Poland :)
In a tiny corner of western Poland a forest of about 400 pine trees grow with a 90 degree bend at the base of their trunks - all bent northward. Surrounded by a larger forest of straight growing pine trees this collection of curved trees, or "Crooked Forest," is a mystery.

Planted around 1930, the trees managed to grow for seven to 10 years before getting held down, in what is understood to have been human mechanical intervention. Though why exactly the original tree farmers wanted so many crooked trees is unknown.

We might not be a tropical country, but we wouldn't we have our own Brazilian-style festival? Especially when it's hosted in Warsaw - the only Polish city with a palm tree, even if it's a fake one! :)
