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). From the 16th to 18th century the szlachta or Polish nobility and gentry, regardless of their wealth and position in the social hierarchy, spent most of their time in the countryside.

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. Galicia was nearly as big as present-day Austria; around 1900 its capital Lviv (Lemberg in German) was the fourth-largest city of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Over 300 works and documents from Polish, Ukrainian, and Austrian collections are reproduced. The album presents a colorful picture of the life of the city on the Motlawa River and its surroundings (Tri-City, Malbork, Kaszuby). It introduces us to its fascinating history - from the first settlement to the events of recent years.
