The album contains reprints of over one hundred archive postcards published between the 1890s and the 1940s. It showcases possibly the fullest panorama of the Lower Silesian province, at that time. The rebirth of the Polish state was made possible by the extraordinary circumstances of the disaster and the collapse of the three partitioning powers (Russia, Prussia and Austria). This collection of 48 amazing stories with surprise endings is a very revealing look at problems of common people during communist Poland from 1944 to 1990. The book is rich in humor, satire and tragedy using simple language, but not simple actions.
