Cover from Poland




Katyn crime.

This souvenir sheet was issued in memory of the soldiers which were killed in 1940 in Katyn (Western Russia) by the order of Stalin. The crime  was disgusting by itself, but even worse the truth about it was being hidden for many years! The Soviet government invented the other version of this event: the soldiers were killed by the German fascists and it was even adopted by the Polish communism authorities. Fortunately this year the situation has changed - the Russian govern

ment presented the original Stalin's order, admitted it and denounced. I do hope this acts will improve our relationships.

   

On the s\s you can see the buttons of the soldiers' war uniform.


Thank you very much, Andrzej!

Cover from Poland




History of Polish photography.

This cover represents the works of the "father of Polish photography" - Jan Bulhak. They were made in 1920s and show us some views of Warsaw and Krakow. The photos are located at the Muzeum Narodowy (Warsaw).

Thank you very much, Andrzej! 

I'm back!

I'm back again after 4 months - the period of my being in the USA. Now I continue to post my covers. I'm going to upload the letters which I got during the summer shortly. 


Thank you, all my exchange-friends for patiently waiting for my return!
