I like travelling, family history and reading books. I am ESL teacher in High Junior school and at University.
Hi GosiaThis video has been around since WW2 - even used in documentaries of the periodand snippets in WW2 war movies.I wonder how many persons will notice a certain Major-General standingobserving the advance next to Hitler - his name is Erwin Johannes Rommel.At that stage he was in charge of Hitler's military train on behalf of the GermanWehrmacht.After this campaign he was given after requesting his own Panzar Division,the 7th, for the invasion of France and the Low Countries right through toCherbourg.Incredible to imagine Polish cavalry taking on tanks.Good history lesson for viewers.CheersColinPS: Raining here - hope Poland also is getting a drenching from above?
Colin you are right not many people know about Rommel but I know. Great personality in our history..
GosiaWhat I really was referring to was that Rommel was in one of your photos in the video.I believe more people would know of Rommel than they know of Polish history.He treated all POW's with dignity and respect. See the history of the Polish brigade in North Africa.CheersColin
A terrible and sad time in history that changed the world. It has taken your country many years to regain their freedom.
Cynthia the way to freedom was very long
Such an awful time in history for your country and others in Europe. We had the opportunity to visit many places that were occupied by the Germans in Poland. We spent some time in Warsaw. The Germans took so many films of their conquests. Amazing the restoration. Thanks for sharing this video as a reminder of the past.
Linda our history was verry complicated but luv=ckily we have survived as a nation and now we are independent democratic country
War is always a sad time for the nation and people. If only people can learn from history and avoid war that brings suffering and pain.
Nancy I totally agree with you
